In April 1994, the St. Petersburg Times asked interested readers to submit their recollections of the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War Il. The Times compiled the submissions and published a special section in the May 25, 1994 paper to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944). The newspaper donated some of the letters, journal entries, and clippings used in the D-Day Remembered section to the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library in August 1994.
