Coleville-sur-Mer, France – Lynchburg D-Day veteran Bill Sisk met up with Helen Patton Friday at Normandy American Cemetery.

The singer and actress is the granddaughter of General George S. Patton. She was there to attend the American-French commemoration ceremony.

Sisk had met Patton years before.  He was pleased she remembered him right away.

"I headed over through the crowd, broke through the crowd and all I yelled was Helen! She yelled Bill! We got one big hug,” said Sisk.

Patton performed two anniversary concerts in Normandy last week.
