RIP: Leonard ‘Bud’ Lomell, US Army Ranger
Leonard ‘Bud’ Lomell: US Ranger who led a successful attack on German clifftop machine guns during D-Day has died.
“described Lomell as the single American, other than President Eisenhower, most responsible for the success of D-Day. Lomell’s response: “I lost half my guys. What more is there to know?”“
“Once, when fellow lawyers refused to admit a Jewish colleague into a private club, Lomell told them: “I didn’t climb the cliffs of Normandy to find fascists in my own back yard.”“
