Every Man A Hero, By Ray Lambert and Jim DeFelice
This is the story of one man’s life. It is also a history lesson, and an in-depth look at what it was like to be a member of the Greatest Generation during a war across the world. Ray Lambert joined the US military in 1939 at the ripe age of 20, which resulted in his departure from the family farm in Alabama, his training at Fort Bragg, where he met the woman he would marry, and how everything changed for him on Dec. 7, 1941. Lambert describes his life during the war, serving in North Africa, Sicily, and European theaters of war, including participating in the landings on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. As a medic, he saw the war through injuries, illnesses, and deaths on the battlefields. His story encapsulates what it was like to live in those historic times, and the faith and commitment it took to survive them.
