- The Untold Story of D-day's Black Heroes, at Home and at War
- By: Linda Hervieux
- Narrated by: Ron Butler
- Length: 9 hrs and 33 mins

Their orders were to man a curtain of armed balloons meant to deter enemy aircraft. One member of the 320th would be nominated for the Medal of Honor, an award he would never receive because the nation's highest decoration was not given to black soldiers in World War II.
