Paul Delmas Lambert

 

Son of Eulogy and Estelle Lamber.  Paul was in World War II.  He was in the outfit that invaded France and liberated Cherbourg on the coast of the Normandy Peninsula and other battles.

Part of his cheek was blown off by a piece of shrapnel and he was evacuated.  When he returned his face had be repaired by grafting skin from his buttock onto his cheeks and put a metal plate on his cheek.  They did a good job but that cheek never had whiskers on it again.

Paul was one of the founder and Past President of the 315th Infantry Association.  He attended all but the last two of the 53 reunions held by the association which started in 1948.  Paul was a bachelor.
