Thanks, I am please as my dad always talked about D-Day and how it sure was a mess esp. cuz he couldn't even swim and they set the men too far out and he dogged paddle in. He said that it was a mircle anyone got to shore.He said there was not many men left under him when he made it to the cliffs. I have articles about them getting left behind at NY when they were going over to England and they caught a ride with other units and got there before the other reg. did. They went by Iceland and Scotland into England. And on to Omaha Beach after training at England and then to Chairboug, France and Paris. They blow up Bridges and built bridges in and around Saurbrucken basin and Luxemburg, Belgium. He got hurt jumping from a fast moving train at the beginning of the Battle of Bulge and went home on the Queen Mary.
