Eagles of Mercy: D-Day: June 6, 1944. Two American medics from the 101st Airborne (Screaming Eagles) set up an aid station inside a small 12th-Century church in Normandy, France. All that protects the two medics is a flag with a red cross on the door of the church and armbands identifying them as healers.
