    Gone, but not forgotten

    My great-uncle Pete Waller fought in Normandy, as well. Part of the 116th RCT, 29th Infantry, he survived landing in the first wave at Omaha and fought on until D+32 (if I remember correctly), when he was severely wounded by mortar fragments outside the town of St. Lo. I met him when he was in his eighties and I was perhaps 12 (he lived several states away from me); even at that age he spent his days mowing his also-elderly neighbors’ yards and fetching them groceries, meds, etc… anything to help. Great guy.
