I was going through my external hard drive and found these pictures of a WWII pre D-day yardlong of the 2nd Ranger bn. I had gotten this on a house call about ten years ago? Pretty humbling to know that around 60% of the men in this yardlong would be killed on D-Day. Sitting in the center just above the Ranger sign is Major James E. Rudder.
