Biography[edit | edit source]

This Private dropped with the rest of the 101st Airborne into Normandy on D-Day. Later, he was then rounded up by a Colonel to go and defend the town of Ramelle, which had a bridge called the Alamo, one of the last two bridges the Allies could use to cross the Merderet River. There, the Runner and his other companions were then joined up by Miller's Men.

The Runner was given a Sticky Bomb, and he took cover behind the rubble of a building. When the Germans attacked, and the Battle of Ramelle started, the Runner tried to put his Sticky Bomb on a Tiger Tank without Captain Miller’s order, but took too long, and got caught in the bomb blast, killing him.
