Stories

William O Weindell

Jefferson Barracks, Missouri

William was in the Army Infantry, 26th Division, 104th Regiment, 2nd Battlian, Company F.

   William /My dad was in WWII and he turned 83 on Tuesday. (2007)  My mom went out to CA from MO and worked on planes and in the ship yard.  I finally wrote the stuff
down and she was at San Pedro at the consolidated Ship Building and El
Sequendo with Douglas Aircraft.
My dad fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He was an ARMY guy and was
awarded a purple heart, but didn't accept it, from what I can remember,
because he said he was just doing his job. I know they wanted to promote
him. He was in the infantry. I would have to ask him what group. I think
there were 244 of them in his unit and only 3 came back. His best friend
died and when my mom and he got married, they had some guy, they didn't even
know, be their best man because he looked just like his friend SLIM. He
was 18 when he went in and 22 when he came out. He doesn't talk about it
too much. He almost lost his fingers to frostbite and said to God that if
he got to keep them, he would spend the rest of his life helping people and
that he did. He is a retired Chiropractor and also a Physical Therapist.

He still has a gun he took off a German officer that has NEVER been fired.
I have a picture of him in uniform and when I go upstairs, I'll take a
picture of that picture and send it to you. He went in a little chubby, but
came out a STICK and 4 inches taller!! He's a good, honest man, and you
just don't find them like that too much anymore. I know he use to give the
kids in France chocolate bars. He saw terrible things.
I email you later with a picture! Here are my parents today. This was the
22 of May, his birthday. (2007 Photo)

Wm O Weindell

Europe, Battle of the Bulge

"Bill" promised the Lord, if he lived, and kept his fingers, he would devote his life to serving and healing people as his life's work :)  And as one one of a very few that walked out of the snow at the Barrle of the Bulge, he kept that promise.... becoming a Chiropractor/Teacher.  Another WW II Hero !
