A WWII Dead and Missing Cemetery 6 DDAY
A Virtual Cemetery created by: ShaneO
Description: The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star Medal to Harvey Sigurd Olson (37023123), Sergeant, U.S. Army, for gallantry in action against the enemy while serving with Troop A, 4th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron (Mechanized), on 6 June 1944, in France. On that date Sergeant Olson with one companion, displaying the highest courage in the face of unknown dangers, became one of the first American Soldiers of the ground forces to land on French soil. He volunteered for the mission of the landing on D-DAY on the Iles De St Marcouf, a strategically placed island commanding the beach where assault was to be made. Sergeant Olson and his companion paddled through heavy surf and mined waters in a small two-man rubber boat to within 100 yards of the island. Sergeant Olson then destroyed his craft by slashing it open, and swam the remaining distance armed only with a knife. Once on the island, which was heavily covered with anti-tank and anti- personnel mines, Sergeant Olson and his companion signaled the assault forces and marked the beach with lights.Headquarters, VII Corps, General Orders No. 43 (1944)Born: December 12, 1920 at Bronson, Minnesota. This virtual cemetery is dedicated to John Onken and Anton Elvasaeter who were KIA on the Isles St Marcouf in the pre-dawn hours of DDAY morning.
