Patton's Lucky Scout

Nancy Martin will give a talk about her book, Patton's Lucky Scout.  The book tells the story of Frank Wayne Martin who served as a scout working behind enemy lines in the 328th regiment of the 26th Yankee Division in the Third Army during World War II.  Martin's job was to scout routes and German positions, usually far behind enemy lines, then to report back, often directly to General Patton.
