1943 Article about Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

This 1943 article shares news about Theodore Roosevelt Jr. and his jeep “Rough Rider”. A year after this article, at age 56, Roosevelt became the oldest service member to land on D-Day, winning the Medal of Honor for his efforts. He was later portrayed by Henry Fonda in the Longest Day. It is also claimed that Roosevelt was a part of the only father-son duo to land on D-Day, as his son Quentin II landed on June 6th also. Here’s a synopsis of his life. He died from a heart attack a few months after D-Day.


Here is a photo from an eBay listing:
“This is an original press photo. Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, son of the famous “Rough Rider” rests on the bumper of his jeep, dubbed “Rough Rider,” and reads his mail. Brig. Gen. Roosevelt is director of Liaison to the Cef.Photo measures 8.5 x 6.75inches. Photo is dated 1-18-1944.”



This is from the First Division Museum:


Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. and his “Rough Rider” jeep in Italy, January 1944. This former commander of the 26th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, was one of the most popular generals in the storied history of the Big Red One.

This one was floating around Pinterest:


According to this website, this photo was the last one of Roosevelt and his jeep:
