Trance, (De-layedlCPr I Anally caught up with John Norbert Murphy after searching the war tones for mora than a year. Almost seven years ago my older brother, Ed, married John's sister, Monica, In Kansas City., John wasn't even In high school then. When I was back home last Spring Monica asked if I had ever VVNiv aai i vm iivi a iu wv- "He is In the Navy and landed with a Navv beach cart during the invasion of Sicily last July," she said. "He talked to some other cor respondents and learned you had landed with General Patton on the tame stretch of beach, but wasn't able to get in touch with you. When I went to England in May I still couldn't nnd him. Today I found him. over here. He was lying in olot B. Row rive, Grave 84. of the first American cemetery in France in World War II. In the mound of earth was stuck a stake to which was wired his identifying "dogtag." And a withered Normandy rose left there by French peasants who have put a flower over each of 2.000 American graves in the cemetery. The cemetery overlooks the stretch of beach on which John died on D-day. A few hundred yards away is a ruined 88-mm gun which', could have fired the shell that killed him. Walking in a heavy rain across a rutted beach I found a young radioman who told me about ifc "Murphy landed an hour after H-hour," he said. "He was carrying a tommygun. He was a radioman second class and in charge of communications for his platoon. He soon had the ship-to-shore radio working so the officers could direct the movement of troops and materials ashore. "He had to keep moving because he was on the hottest section of the beach. It was almost covered with German 88 shells, mortars and machinegun fire. "About 7 o'clock that night Murphy and his buddy. Radioman Third Class Lawrence Meredith, from Ok lahoma City, and two other men were in a foxhole. An 88 shell landed right in the foxhole. Murph and Meredith were killed instantly. One of the other fellows, was wounded, but the fourth man Wasn't even hurt. Company Commander Lt. George Clyburn, Conroe, Tex., recalled that John s platoon had been hardest hit on D-day. "We were badly mauled that day," he said.' In a one time German concrete bunker, I met Signalman Second Class George Lythgoe, Loogootee, Ind., and Radioman Second Class James Fanto, 22, Lowellville, O, V .
