Honor D-Day and War Hero Bud Lomell at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- D-Day, the military operation credited with turning the tide of World War II, has a pivotal Jersey Shore connection in the fearless actions of Leonard "Bud" Lomell (1920-2011). Join Toms River Township Historian J. Mark Mutter, Esq. for "The 80th Anniversary of D-Day and Ocean County Hero Bud Lomell" at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch on Monday, June 3. The event begins at 6:30pm.

In a PowerPoint presentation, Mr. Mutter will detail the events leading up to the assault and also focus on Bud Lomell’s life and his date with destiny.

Born in Brooklyn and raised in Point Pleasant Beach, Lomell enlisted and became a seasoned Army Ranger before the land, sea and air assault on seemingly-invincible enemy strongholds along France’s Normandy coast.

Lomell’s climb of the Pointe du Hoc cliffs, disabling of powerful weaponry and repelling of relentless counterattacks are recorded in numerous accounts, including The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw and Steven Gillon’s Len Lomell: D-Day Hero, available at the Ocean County Library. He was awarded the Army Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star and many other decorations.

After leaving the service, Lomell married and raised his family in Toms River, established a successful law practice, engaged in numerous civic activities and founded the World War II Rangers Association. He hired a young Mark Mutter for his law firm and became a friend and mentor.
