    I would like to pay a modest tribute to a great man. He is called Marc Rainaud and was a local F.F.I leader near Saint Tropez. He attacked the German Garisson with his and captured it despite a shot in the neck . His attack allowed the U.S. 3rd Infantry to capture this area almost without firing a single shot. He was awarded the Silver Star by Patch for his galant attitude
