The story of WWII soldier
Grandmother came to America from Veitri Di Potenza in the southern province of Basilicata. Buffalo NY came and nicked the "The Side Wheel" nickname with "New York Central" steam locomotives. My father was later called "The Wheel," as all his friends grew up with a nickname. It was funny because as a child I never knew the real names. Only "The Bird", "The Weasel" and his brother "Jumbo". Second generation was American. Like all sorts and ethnicities of the 1940s, many men and women began in New Jersey in Fort Dix, England, in June 1944.
To tell her story, I call her his first name, James. Like many of his companions, he spoke little about the war and soaked every detail when he opened it a bit. He loved "The Longest Day" and I wish he'd seen "rescuing Private Ryan" as he would have so much enjoyed it.
Founded in 2006, the National Purple Heart Hall of Fame in Vails Gate (NY). When I heard about it, he wrote a letter with some imagination and other attachments.
My dear friends for the purple heartbeat:
Thank you very much for the honor and recognition room.
My father, Private First Class James, was a member of the Fourth Division, the Medical Unit, the 8th Infantry Regiment. World War II is a veteran of four years and a month, its story is very interesting if it is not impressive. I've attached a number of documents to the folder so I can help document your experience.
I'll tell you a few details in this letter that he was related to me (like many veterans he rarely talked about in the war) to clarify and extend the attached documents.
He was born and grew up in Buffalo, NY worked and was even more severe "sparring" than a boxer before the war and thought of the championship at Fort Dix. About 5 to 39 kg, wounded in Belgium, returned to the Fort Dix states.
He told me that the fourth class dragged on the landing at D-Day. less losses than other landings, including the Eighth Infantry Command, which will take four battles on a road to Germany, on this page I was nominated for Lommersweiler on 31 January 1945 in Belgium. he was helping another underground machine when a Nazi tiger tank opened fire on a hill with a large smack in his thigh (I do not want to get sick but I can be down to the wrist at four feet fingers at her feet and lay in the snow fourteen hours. Kenneth M. Alford (NY, Buffalo, NY) saved his foot, the Buffalo newspapers included themselves in the "List of Honorable Warring Men" when they were separated from the individual and their place of residence was unknown (I bought these articles into the folder). He told the surprise of the peoples faces who believed he was dead when he returned to Buffalo. From January 31, 1945, until his resignation on January 16, 1946, he spent time in the hospitals of Europe and New Jersey
inch and half shorter than the other, has been working at VA Hospital Buffalo, NY for years and has had a great job
Before he was wounded, on December 4, 1944, during the Battle of Bulge, he was ordered to retire and take three wounded men away from the city behind enemy lines, three separate there was a carriage of a litter. My dad said he could hear hundreds of Nazi arriving within twenty yards when they were traveling to make men safe. After all this, he did not really think his rewards would go away. In 1955 he wrote to receive the Good Conduct Medal and the Medical Combat Badge. On March 5, 1956 he received the Bronze Star. Received the Purple Heart on May 18, 1959. Your family and friends are very proud of being known to such a man. He died in 1983 due to the disability associated with 100% service. The Wheel was a proud soldier and a great man.
I've never been to the service, but I certainly appreciated those who served. The generation of World War II was indeed very special than those who risk their lives to America. This is the II. The story of a WWII soldier is devoted to all the doctors who have served us in all wars.
