Leslie "Les" Talbert landed on Omaha Beach in 1944. He was recommended for a Bronze Star, after capturing 128 German soldiers and their officer. He was the only one of 17 survivors from his replacement troop. Les served as a radio op and communications specialist. The FUMC Harvesters Club thinks Les is what a Hero should be.
