Major Richard N. Hathaway Jr., USA (ret.) was a sergeant in the 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion.  In addition to being a retired Army officer, he is a past president of the Ranger Battalion Association of World War II.  He is the author of Training for Bloody Omaha: Activation, Training, and Combat of the 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion through 8 June 1944.

 

The MOAA said of Training for Bloody Omaha: Activation, Training, and Combat of the 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion through 8 June 1944, “As a sergeant, Hathaway led his men to excel at the maneuvers that became increasingly risky as D-Day approached. A larger than life presentation is given of the combat readiness. A panoramic view is given of the gigantic invasion armada, with an assessment of the problems that beset the operation. Hathaway's contingent was the only part of the Fifth Battalion to complete their D-Day mission. This is a dramatic narration that makes a vital struggle come brilliantly alive.”
