Sumter SC Veteran Awarded the Nation of France Highest Honor

James Prosser was an ordinary soldier who happened to be involved in one of the most extraordinary battles in the history of the world. The D-Day invasion changed the course of history forever. The 29th Infantry Division of which James Prosser was a member played a decisive role when it successfully assaulted Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, as part of the greatest amphibious invasion in history. The D-Day landings turned the tide of World War II and marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

On this beautiful morning in Sumter, South Carolina on the steps of the County Courthouse people gathered to honor a soldier that had completed his call of duty over two thirds of a century earlier. The attendees were residents of the Sumter community along with officers and enlisted personnel from Shaw Air Force Base and politicians both local and statewide. Mr. Prosser was being awarded "Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honor of the Republic of France" presented by Monsieur Benard D. Marie. The order is the highest decoration in France and was bestowed on behalf of the grateful Nation of France for the sacrifices Mr. Prosser and so many of his fellow soldiers made on that heroic day so long ago.

During the ceremony the flags of both France and United States were presented by the Sumter High School ROTC Color Guard. The National Anthem of each Nation was played by the Fort Jackson Military Band. The staff of Agapé Hospice of Sumter was proud to attend the award ceremony and hosted a reception that followed the event for the family and guests of Mr. Prosser.
