Caplin & Drysdale Founding Member, Mortimer M. Caplin, was interviewed by FOX 5 News to mark the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.  In the interview, Mr. Caplin discusses his memories of the allied invasion of Normandy, France and his life after World War II.  Below are excerpts from the interview.  Please visit FOX 5's website to view the video. 

"At the age of 97 … the longtime tax attorney remembers living through D-Day and the bloody weeks that followed as though it was not 70 years ago. ‘It stays with you,' Caplin said.  ‘I mean, you don't forget it, you know.  Coming on the beach with all those bodies there.'  "Caplin was a 27-year-old law school graduate when he landed at Omaha Beach along the Normandy coast. He says the beach was completely covered with dead bodies.  ‘It was like a wax museum,' he remembers.  "Caplin was a Navy beach master, working a stretch of about half a mile on Omaha Beach.  He commanded 40 men, helping to direct the subsequent waves of boats and soldiers onto the beach."
