D DAY PLUS 76
76 Years Ago Today……
75 years ago today, a 22 year old infantryman, Marston Smith hit the beaches at Normandy. Two years earlier, he dropped out of the University of Virginia and joined the U.S. Army because duty called. He fought in the hedgerows and helped liberate Paris. He was awarded for his efforts and became an officer and on December 24, 1944 he led his company of men in a defense of Bastogne in the Battle of Bulge, marched into Germany and when Hitler was defeated, he immediately volunteered for duty in the Pacific. When he returned to Virginia, he dedicated his life to serving others. A true Cincinnatus, a man of honor and courage. Thanks Pop.
