The Major of St. Lo

So, just how big a deal was The Major of St. Lo story? Our History Major Interns from James Madison University are helping us sort, catalog and properly store some of our document collections from General Gerhardt, Heirome and Evarts Opie (each a General), D-Day Engineer unit reports for example, and the papers of Major Thomas D. Howie. Given by his Daughter Sally, they include photos, articles, personal letters, V-Mail, etc. And, this gem. An August 1963 national publication comic book with the story of The Major of St. Lo! That’s how big a deal!
