Adelbert was drafted and arrived in Normandy right after the invasion. I remember him telling a few stories about the front lines, but he did not talk much about it. My dad was shot in the right thigh and was left to lie there; to be picked up later. While he was lying there another solder took his rifile. He packed snow around his wound to keep it from bleeding out.
I remember seeing him in the Boston hospital in a ward of many wounded men.
When he was being shipped to Europe, he met his Brother Charles, Charles was also wounded in the war.
not only did Charles return home , so did their brothers William, Ftrdrick and Herman. That's right, all five men were drafted and all five returned home.
They are all HEROs both during the war and after.
I kew them all
