Dear Mr. Roop,
Thanks very much for your email to Armchair General and for sharing the story of your uncles’ service and the D-Day map. The 29th Division, which landed along with the 1st Infantry Division and Ranger units, at Omaha Beach does not get the credit that it deserves for its heroic assault. The exploits of men like your uncles should be better known.
Thank you for continuing to preserve their heritage of outstanding service by collecting the maps.
