[Warning - this is a large file)
Although the masthead is slightly cut off, this
article appears to be from the San Gabriel Valley Daily Tribune
Inter-city Express (West Covina, Calif.) which serves the La Puente
area where Favela lived at the time.
Published on he 20th anniversary of D-Day, it features a photo of
Joe Favela and a narrative of his experiences that day.
Although he mentioned some humorous anecdotes, the
stark fear of facing the enemy (and the fear the enemy displayed in
turn) were quite real.
Also mentioned, and the first time we have heard
of itr, is that the Stars and Stripes published news of the invasion
a day erly due to the weather-delayed mission launch.
