Lo- a battalion surgeon who ran the 10th Armored Division aid station during the siege of Bastogne- a Tin Can Sailor from the crew of the USS Butler- the Ranger who almost singlehandedly sabotaged four large coastal guns during the battle on Pointe du Hoc- a paratrooper who landed in the water and joined the Rangers in the battle for the Pointe- two members of the 294th Combat Engineer Battalion who were aboard the troop ship Susan B. Anthony, which was sunk in the English Channel- and an 82nd Airborne Division sergeant who went into Normandy on a glider that crashed.
