D-Day survivor donates mementos to 82nd Airborne Division Museum
FORT BRAGG, NC, UNITED STATES
U.S. Army Maj. Gen. John W. Nicholson, Jr., left, the commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division accepts historical documents on behalf of the 82nd Airborne Division Museum from Maurice Renaud during a ceremony at Fort Bragg, N.C., Sept. 5, 2013. Renaud was 2 years old when American paratroopers jumped into his hometown of Sainte Mere Eglise, France, on D-Day. His donations included a letter from his father, the former mayor of Sainte Mere Eglise, to a French government official asking for the 82nd to be awarded the French Fourragere for liberating the town. Two drawings by his older brother, Paul, were also donated, one of the battle on the Sainte Mere Eglise square, when Paul was 15, and the other of the town church's stained glass window depicting 82nd Airborne Division Soldiers parachuting from the sky.
