Ray Lambert served as a U.S. Army medic, landing during the first wave at Omaha Beach on "D-Day." Previously decorated with a Silver Star and Purple Heart for service in North Africa and Sicily, Lambert was wounded immediately upon landing at Omaha Beach. Despite his injuries, he continued to tend to wounded soldiers, sheltering them behind a chunk of concrete that would become known as ‘Ray’s Rock,’ until he was wounded twice more and evacuated from the battlefield.
