Photo taken on June 4, 1944.
Once yours truly gave a tour of the Vatican Museums to one of these soldiers. It was his first return to Rome since June of '44. He was from the UK, in a wheelchair, an elderly man with a beard. It was a Monday morning. I had to push him up the hill in the rain on our way into the Vatican. He kept apologizing. I stopped and said: "It is an honor. THANK YOU, sir, for your service in the name of liberty and freedom for all men." Honestly, it was the most enjoyable tour I ever led.
