In World War I he became a temporary major.

After a couple of years in command, Omar started preparing for the biggest battle in his career; The Normandy Landing in 1944. He trained troop 1 and he later was given command of the 12th army group. It consisted of soldiers from the 1st, 3rd, 9th, and 15th armies. This very important command had never been given to an American. This troop successfully did missions in many countries such as France, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and Czechoslovakia.
