Lamar Parnell in the 303rd Port Company

Lamar Parnell was a member of the 303rd Port Company, 519th Port Battalion. His son recently found my blog and sent in these two great photos. They show his dad (above left) in camp at Utah Beach. I like how they tacked up that little "The Virgin Inn" sign above their hut door. I wonder if they cut that from something, or if they painted it themselves. For more info on the GI's scratch-built huts in Normandy, see my post Living Accommodations on the Normandy Beaches
