Eggertsville Firefighter Fredrick Brunner was from Eggertsville, New York and during World War II, Brunner had already volunteered twice, by joining the Marine Corps and then by becoming a Marine Paratrooper. When a request went out for French-speaking Marine Paratroopers to volunteer for a special assignment, he volunteered again and found himself in the OSS in England. Three-man "Jedburgh" teams had sent into Nazi-Occupied France on secret missions and now "Operational Groups" were going to be parachuted in; unlike previous missions, these slightly-larger teams would wear military uniforms all the time. Of course, under Hitler's notorious "Commando Order," the Nazis would still execute them if they were caught.
The "Union II" mission parachuted into Savoie, France on 1 August 1944. It was an eight-man team, with six Marines, one USAAF officer and one Free French officer disguised as a Marine. The team was commanded by Major Peter J. Ortiz, a remarkable officer who had fought with the French Foreign Legion and had already earned a Navy Cross for a Jedburgh Mission ("Union," hence this one was "Union II"). Sergeant Charles Perry died when the static line snapped on his British chute but the others began training the French Resistance. Theirs was one of the very few small-unit combat jumps made by Marines in World War II, and their silver jump wings would later bear the gold star signifying a combat jump.
A German Alpine unit eventually trapped most of them in a village and Major Ortiz decided to surrender, to hopefully spare the villagers from brutal Nazi retribution. Brunner was farther away from Ortiz and managed to escape. Ortiz cleverly tricked the Germans into believing they were actually wayward Paratroopers from the recent invasion of Southern France, rather than OSS agents. This spared them from being executed and they were later liberated from a German P.O.W. camp in 1945.

After the others were captured but he was able to escape, he made his way back to England and received the Silver Star for the Union II mission, for heroic actions during the period of 1 August-3 October 1944. He resumed his duties with the OSS but was Killed in Action on 29 March 1945, when his aircraft when down near Mannheim, Germany. A posthumous Purple Heart was later awarded, in his memory. He is buried in the Ardennes American Cemetery at Neupre, Belgium in Plot A, Row 36, Grave 47. Semper Fi, PltSgt Brunner.

Our friends at St. Benedict’s wish to honor the following:

Congratulations to Mr. Flynn; father of our Captain Mike F. Flynn

Today, we give thanks for John Flynn! John has been an incredibly involved and dedicated parishioner for over 50 years! He has done so much for our parish that we found it impossible to list everything but we will do our best to give you the highlights.

John was born to Irish immigrants and grew up in Kenmore, attending St. Paul's Grammar School and St. Joe's. He was an altar boy from 3rd grade up until he got married to Ginny by Fr. Francis Weldgen in 1965. In 1971, John and Ginny began attending St. Benedict Church and all four of their sons attended St. Benedict School. While the boys were in school, John served as treasurer for the Home School Association and was a crucial part of coordinating fundraisers.

On the parish side, John serves as the Membership Chairman for our Holy Name Society, and in the past has served as the Vice-President and President. He helped with our first Parish Census in 1973 under the leadership of Earl Lynch. John also started the mail-in process for collecting parish offertory donations (as opposed to the old way of collecting from door to door). He has served as an usher and money counter for over forty years, as well as serving as a member of our Finance Committee for over 20 years. In the 1980s, he and Ginny helped run Renewal Groups within the parish.

If there's ever a parish event or fundraiser, you can always count on John to be there helping behind the scenes! He has helped organize our Red Cross Blood Drives, Parish Picnics, HSA's 5K runs, St. Vincent de Paul's St. Joseph Tables, Right to Life Flower Sales, Dare to Dream Fundraisers, and so much more! John was the Vice-President for our parish's Catholic Charities and the Parish Chairman for several years. He also worked in the Parish Rectory for over 15 years. All of these efforts were recognized by the diocese when he became the first parishioner from St. Benedict's to receive the St. Joseph the Worker Award.

There is honestly not enough room to describe how much time, energy, and commitment John has shared with our St. Ben's community over these many years. We are incredibly grateful for his continued involvement and service to our parish family.

One quick story to summarize the kind of person John is: at one point, he helped school families prevent tuition increases by partnering with our school principal to help sell over 100 tickets for Dare to Dream on their behalf. His selfless generosity and concern for our parish and school family is something that we cannot express enough gratitude for.

John is regularly an usher at the Saturday 5 PM Mass. If you see him in person, please thank him for his tireless efforts on our parish's behalf!

Stay tuned next week as we feature another wonderful parishioner.
