D-Day Remembered: Westport’s Robert Loomis

Today’s Sunday Hour of Norwalk features Westport D-Day veteran Robert Loomis in its coverage of the 60th anniversary of the Allied landing at Normandy.loomis060604.jpg

As a native Parisian, Loomis, 79, could have taken a relatively easy assignment as an interpreter, the newspaper reported. But he chose the infantry instead.

“They had plenty of French interpreters, and I wanted more action,” he said.

Loomis was 19 when he found himself off Utah Beach on June 6, 1944, when the naval bombardment began.

“I was with the 87th Chemical Mortar Battalion, 32nd Regiment, 4th Infantry Division,” he recalled. “We landed at H-Hour plus 90 minutes.

“The tide was so low we jumped off the landing craft into four feet of very cold water and had to wade and swim ashore.”

TEAM Westport Sponsors “Laramie Project” Community Conversation

A controversial play about the murder of a gay student in Laramie, Wyo., will be the focus for a community discussion by Westport’s diversity commission known as TEAM Westport.

The group is sponsoring the discussion June 18 immediately following that evening’s performance of “The Laramie Project” at the Westport Community Theatre in Town Hall.

Director David Roth and several cast members will join audience members in an exploration of the play’s themes, and its applicability to Westport.

“The Laramie Project” explores the murder of gay student Matthew Shepard in 1998, and that Wyoming cowboy-and-college town’s reaction to it. Ten actors portray 84 roles, including Shepard’s two killers, his father and friends.
