Sam Elliott shared the harrowing account of Ray Lambert, a WWII Army medic who served during the D-Day invasion.

Elliott recited Lambert’s first-hand story of hitting Omaha Beach under heavy fire and selflessly aiding the wounded despite being injured multiple times.

“I was thinking of only one thing, getting to the men who needed me,” Elliott quoted.

“You did the job you were trained to do. If you didn’t, you died.”

Of the 31 men on Lambert’s boat, only 7 survived to reach the beach. His brother Bill was also at D-Day and both miraculously survived.

Elliott met the 98-year old Ray Lambert after the performance, thanking him for his heroic service as a medic who saved countless lives on June 6, 1944.
