I am a little late on this post because I have been busy, but I wanted to introduce my readers who live out of the area to two Crisfield natives who are D-Day survivors. Both fought on Omaha Beach at Normandy. Where there were once 16 million WW II veterans, there are only around 2 million, with more than 1,000 dying off each day. Thank you to all who served.
A salute to our local treasures:
Platoon Sergeant Austin Cox, Sr., 29th Division of the Infantry.
General Maurice Dana Tawes, 29th Division of the Infantry.
Read more about Austin Cox in the December 15, edition of the Crisfield-Somerset County Times.
