Good morning Cottagers!
I am late and will be gone after about 1:30 until tomorrow, so let's see if we can get you clues before then!
Chuck got a new book on D-Day this past week and we were both so taken by a fact we didn't already know, so here you are. One American general went ashore in the first assault wave. In fact, he was the first off the boat when it landed. When Chuck asked me to guess who it was, he just laughed and said that it makes so much sense once you know! His superiors were reluctant to say the least to let him go, but his men were inspired. He received the Medal of Honor for what he did. He was the only general to land with American troops on June 6th. His aide described him thusly: "The old man was the most disreputable looking general I ever saw. He was dressed in ancient combat clothes and often covered in dust or mud."
Any thoughts? You will love this when you find out if you don't already know!
