FEB. 3–9, 2016 – THE PRINCETON SUN 3

Sharing the untold stories of the only black battalion on D-Day

Author Linda Hervieux, whose book journeys through racism in the U.S., to speak at Princeton University Feb. 10

By ERICA CHAYES WIDA

The Sun

“Corporal Waverly B. Woodson

Jr. of West Philadelphia landed

early on D-Day under heavy fire.

He was wounded before his boots

touched Omaha Beach yet he

began saving lives as soon as he

hit the sand. He worked for 30

hours straight before he col-

lapsed. He was nominated for the

Medal of Honor.”

Woodson is one of the men rep-

resented in Linda Hervieux’s

book, “Forgotten: The Untold

Story of D-Day's Black Heroes, at

Home and at War.” The quote
