TROUP, TX (KLTV) - From the time Royce Peacock landed on Normandy Beach the week after D-Day, he was battling the enemy. In a company of 214 men, 45 were killed in action. During his three months of constant battle, Peacock was to earn the Bronze Star for leading his platoon into action after fierce gunfire had immobilized them, a Presidential Citation for taking and holding Freedenburg Farms against an overwhelming enemy, and the Purple Heart for a battle wound which he says may have saved his life, or at least his feet, which had been frozen and then treated at the same time as his wounds.
Peacock was released from the Army in 1946 and then called back to duty in 1950 during the Korean War. Ironically, during that war, he was stationed in Germany where he had seen so much action during World War II.
