Dayton Edie was my good friend and a bona fide American hero. He seldom spoke of his own combat from fighting in World War II and the Korean War, and on those rare occasions that he did, I listened intently.

Although his own actions rarely came up, now and then he would discuss historic events and famous people encountered during his lifetime, and this story is as Dayton told it.

Some of Dayton’s experiences occurred when he was an operative for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC), covert branches of the US government. The stories you find here about those covert activities are based on vague narratives and hedged comments from Dayton, combined with the results of years of in-depth research.

Read, and decide for yourself if he doesn’t deserve to be remembered for his courage under fire, his leadership, his strength, and ultimately his kindness, since history has all but forgotten Dayton Edie.
