Fighting 29th Post D-Day

This  post answers questions wanting to know a bit more about Father O’Grady.

Some folks have asked about the priest in my D-Day post.  He was Father O’Grady, and he was with the fighting 29th. When I looked up information, this is what I found. I assume it would be the same man, as it’s unlikely they’d be two Father O’Grady in my father’s division. This photo comes from my dad. Father O’Grady died in 1944.  The link below tells a bit more of his story.IMG_2172.jpgPhoto by John Reardon
