Robert Kehoe, ’Jedburgh’ radioman who jumped into Nazi-controlled France after D-Day, has died | Navy Times

Robert Kehoe was one of the last of the surviving OSS Jedburgh who was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross in November 1945. He parachuted into France in June 1944 as the radio operator to assist the forces during the German occupation. “He did very well in his career. He was also a good and thoughtful father, as far as providing me the guidance on life and putting up with my numerous quirks with good cheer. I certainly thanked him in his final moments.”, said his son Michael Kehoe to Military Times. He passed away Friday at the age of 98.
