We Treated Them All The Same by Simon Smith.


We Treated Them All The Same by Simon Smith.

IN HONOUR AND IN RECOGNITION OF ROBERT E.WRIGHT, KENNETH J. MOORE, MEDICS 2nd Bn 501 PIR, 101st AIRBORNE DIVISION

FOR HUMANE AND LIFE-SAVING CARE RENDERED TO 80 COMBATANTS AND A CHILD IN THIS CHURCH IN JUNE 1944.


These simple words, carved into a stone memorial outside the ancient church at Angouville-au-Plain, a small hamlet six miles south-west of Utah Beach in Normandy, recall the heroic actions that took place. In the early hours of 6 June 1944 two medics from the 101st Airborne - Kenneth Moore and Robert Wright - arrived to find themselves in the middle of a confused and savage firefight. Undeterred by the fighting around them the two men immediately set up a field dressing-station in the little village church to treat the growing numbers of wounded. In an act of true humanity within the brutality of war, the two medics insisted on treating every wounded soldier brought here equally, regardless of the uniform they wore. There was, however, one simple rule. No guns were to be brought inside the church. When two German paratroopers burst through the doors, machine-guns raised, the medics simply stared them straight in the eye and nodded down to the young German soldier they were treating. The two enemy paratroopers immediately understood. Both saluted and withdrew. By the time the fighting was over, all but three of the 80 wounded had survived.

Private 1st Class Arthur Art Petersen
Serving with Fox Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne he was one of many paratroopers misdropped on D-Day. Landing near Sainte Mère-Église he briefly fought alongside Easy Company before heading south into the bitter fire-fight raging around the church at Angoville-au-Plain. After being wounded he was briefly treated in the Church and then fought in the advance into Carentan. He later jumped on Operation Market Garden, where he was wounded, but was back in action in time to re-join his unit in the Battle of the Bulge. Wounded yet again, Bastogne proved to be his final combat.
