William Liebenow at D-Day
William Liebenow's naval career did not end there with his saving JFK and the PT-109's crew.
The following year, in command of another PT-Boat, the PT-199, he rescued men whose boats were sunk by the German defenders at D-Day. His boat was responsible for the rescue of about 60 crew members of the destroyer USS Corry.
He recalled, "We spent most of that day picking up guys out of the water."
