A great little group from a D-Day 508th Trooper
« on: March 17, 2018, 10:26:23 PM »
  These came in to the museum today. The vet was not a Michigan man, but he is well written about and photographed in the 508th book that came with the flags. Robert White was from St. Albans West Virginia and joined at age 16! Shown here are three flags he "liberated" including a party banner, a small party flag and a neat veterans banner. Enjoy!  Scott
