On June 7, D-Day +70 1, author Robert Mueller will present The Men of Omaha Beach in celebration of the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Mueller's book Fields of War: Battle of Normandy is a finalist for Indie Book Awards. The presentation takes place from 2-4 p.m. at the Oak Park Public Library, 834 Lake St.

At the Scoville Park Memorial Day service (May 26), among the crowd of veterans, families and others was an Oak Park resident, 94, who landed at Omaha Beach during the invasion. Unfortunately, we don't know his name. Here he is, wearing his Purple Heart, with Ginie Cassin who served as MC for the event.

We'd like to contact him, so let us know if you recognize him.
