LTJG Robert A. Huttemeyer

2018-2-28 Huttemeyer

Brooklyn-born Robert Huttemeyer followed the advice of his father, a veteran of World War I, by choosing the Navy (“they feed you and you sleep in a clean dry bed”) over the Army when he enlisted to serve in World War II. He got into an officers’ program and on D-Day he was commanding an LST that was flagship of her group. Not only did he deliver American troops to the beach, but in the next few days, he ferried Canadian and British officers, including General Bernard Montgomery, to and from shipboard conferences.

We honor you, Robert Huttemeyer.
