Forrest Guth And The Band Of Brothers Of Easy Company At Ste Marie-du-mont


Easy Company paratrooper Forrest Guth knew he would witness history when he jumped into France on D-Day, so he carried a camera borrowed from his boyhood friend and fellow paratrooper, Roderick Strohl. On June 7, 1944, D+1, Forrest and his comrades entered Sainte-Marie-du-Mont while searching for Easy Company. Forrest thought the town’s WWI memorial would make a good backdrop. His comrade, Walter Gordon, agreed to snap a photo and Forrest let several 4th ID soldiers, fresh from Utah Beach, join them for a picture the world would one day treasure.

DISTINGUISHED SIGNERS

CLANCY LYALL

Clancy Lyall jumped on D-Day and fought in the Battle of Carentan where he was bayoneted. He would fight in Market Garden, the siege of Bastogne, and would finish the war with Easy Company in Kaprun. Clancy remained in the military, made two combat jumps in Korea, and later served as an advisor to the French at Dien Bien Phu, escaping before that garrison fell. He retired as a Master Sergeant.

DON MALARKEY

An original "Toccoa Man" of Easy Company, Don Malarkey jumped on D-Day and landed near Ste. Mere Eglise. Later that day, he received the Bronze Star for his heroism in a pitched battle to knock out four German 105 mm artillery battery, an action now called the Brécourt Manor Assault. Promoted to sergeant, Malarkey fought in Market Garden, and Bastogne. He ended the war with E-Company in Kaprun. Today, he is the author of "Easy Company Soldier."

RODERICK STROHL

Rod Strohl enlisted in the Army with his boyhood friend Forrest Guth. An original "Toccoa Man" of Easy Company, Rod fought in D-Day where his friend Forrest carried his camera, resulting in the famous June 7th Ste. Marie Du Mont group photo. Rod would also fight in Market Garden, Bastogne, and ended the war with Easy Company in Kaprun.


JACK BLICKENDERFER

Jack Blickenderfer entered France via Utah Beach on July 9, 1944 where he joined up with the 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, as a replacement. Fighting side-by-side with his brother Dale, Jack served as a rifleman throughout all five campaigns with the 4th Division. Jack returned home following VE Day and was discharged in October 1945.

THE ARTIST: GIL COHEN

Gil Cohen is an “old master” among the world’s military and aviation artists. Gil’s passion for military history began as a youngster, during the Second World War when Gil would study the military aircraft that flew over the Philadelphia area where he was born and raised.


Gil originally studied under renowned illustrator and author, Henry C. Pitz and World War II combat artist, Albert Gold and graduated from the Philadelphia Museum School of Art in 1953. Prior to beginning his professional art career, Gil spent two years in the army. During that time, he was stationed outside of Frankfurt, West Germany as an artist with the 513th Military Intelligence Group, US Army Europe, during the height of the Cold War.

After his military service, Gil built a career as a freelance illustrator and painter of historical subjects. Clients during this 50 year span of time have included: The National Park Service, Paramount Pictures, Bantam books, Harlequin Books, Random House, The U.S. Coast Guard, The National Guard, and Boeing & Sikorsky Aircraft Companies.

Years later he would produce a stunning series of paintings depicting scenes of Eighth Air Force activities during World War II. A one-man show of this work was exhibited at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Heritage Museum in Savannah, Georgia and his paintings have since been exhibited at The National Parks Civil War battlefields, The Royal Air Force Museum in London, and The U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton.

Gil has served as Vice-President of the American Society of Aviation Artists (ASAA) and is the recipient of the “Best of the Best” award sponsored by Aviation Week & Space Technology Magazine. The US Air Force and National Guard have flown Gil to such places as war-torn Bosnia, Somalia, Central Asia and Israel to do paintings of American servicemen and women in action. Now, through Valor Studios, Gil continues his tradition of excellence, honoring those who serve through the brushstrokes of an “old master.”
