In honor of #DDay , we are sharing Ms. Fitzgerald's post and picture from three years ago.

June 6, 2016.....I rarely post...just mundane comments mostly, but today cannot pass without sharing a story about a beloved teacher,coach and friend at C.E. Byrd High School...Capt. John Rogers.

This morning I drove to New Orleans to witness a very special ceremony that took place at the World War II Museum, where John still volunteers and shares his story with visitors. During today's commemorative celebration, the French Government counsel-general in Louisiana presented to John their Legion of Honor for his service in the liberation of their country. It was followed by the singing of the French National Anthem. Very moving!! This award was established by Napoleon to recognize his finest soldiers. The ceremony took place in the Freedom Pavilion as part of the D-Day Commemoration which was a wonderfully patriotic event attended by many veterans.

John landed at Normandy D Day+3 or the ninth, with his Sherman tank Company and began fighting his way across Belgium and France liberating town after town and ending the war at the doors of Berlin. As Company commander, he was deeply involved in the Battle of the Bulge and after a battle defeat, introduced a new tactic for disabling the much larger German tanks by taking the smaller Sherman tanks around the German flank and hitting them on the backside of the tanks where they were less armored and their engines vulnerable.

At 98 years of age, John's story and his interviews can be viewed in the Road to Berlin exhibit of the Museum. You can also read his oral history on the Livingstonbusiness.com and search..John Rogers.

I will be writing an article about John for the Byrd Alumni High Life and would hope if you have a comment that I might use, you would Private Message me or comment. I will share all comments with John.

It was a lovely day to spend with special friend and mentor John, wife Tee, and son Charles. A poignant moment was standing in front of the Sherman tank and listening to John's recollections of fifteen months in that tank during World War II. It was an honor also shared with Byrd folks, Margaret and Jerry Badgley. John coached the former All-Sate catcher and current principal of our Byrd. What a day...and thank you to all veterans for your Service. #AlwaysDeepWithinOurHearts

Before being named head coach on Sunday, Coach Ballew served as Byrd’s defensive coordinator for the last 18 years. During that time, he learned a great deal from Mike Suggs. However, he probably learned a thing or two during the 1992 season when, as a freshman at The City of Byrd, he was responsible for holding the cords to Suggs’ headset. Other coaches in picture (from left of Suggs) Byrd Hall of Fame HC Alan Carter, Glenn Payne, and Mark Allen.πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸπŸˆπŸ’œπŸ’›#AlwaysDeepWithinOurHearts

So many of our Yellow Jackets are helping out around the community.β€”like Julien Deleon (Class of 2019). When he was at The City of Byrd, he was an all-star for Byrd Baseball. Now, he is an all-star in the city of Shreveport, serving our area’s most vulnerable citizens at the Hope Connections shelter on the weekends. Thank you, Julien! We are proud of you! πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸπŸ’œπŸ’›#AlwaysDeepWithinOurHearts
