    I am researching Eisenhower`s Adjutant General at the time of D Day Colonel Emil Charles Boehnke .Its odd despite looking for photos of him I cannot find any source of one .Even there are many of Eisenhower`s staff photos online for instance .Anybody know a source of a pic of this man ?Thanks

    Sorry, I couldn't find one either, but interestingly his ashes are in the Los Gatos Memorial Park, which is only a few miles away from where I live.

    Its very odd he was No15 in the D Day order of Battle list after all the senior Allied Generals .All Supreme orders were drawn up and signed by him on behalf of Eisenhower .Boehnke was German born in 1896 and yes died in California in 1980
