World War II Veteran

 

First assigned to the 611th tank destroyer battalion, he was moved to the 106th cavalry.  He served in Troop B of the 106th Cavalry Recon. Squadron during WWII. He was awarded the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, First Oak Leaf Cluster to Bronze Star among others. Received the Commemorative Certificate/Citation Award of "The Jubilee of Liberty" from Normandy. This is given to soldiers engaged in the battles of D-Day in Normandy and the Liberation.

My Dad

He was a quiet man.  Very strong and very brave.  He never spoke much about the war and said he tried to think of the only good part of the war.  He said that he saw a lot of the world.  That was the only good part. 

He fought at Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge.  Told me that he waded through snow up to his hips during the Bulge.  Said he went to sleep in a foxhole and woke to a foot of snow on top of him.

Always said, "I lost a lot of buddies over there."  He would shake his head when he said that. Every time.

He was a good man.  His word was better than any contract and his values were what he lived by and taught us.

He loved his family above all. He knew what was important in life.

He was part of that "Greatest Generation" and he represented them well.

I will always miss him.
