Best Moment End of War
Worst Moment Wounded by German 88mm shrapnel on June 20, 1944 in Germany. Confronting German tank at point blank range in a jeep when turning a corner. Tank turret was pointing in opposite direction allowing my father to escape.
Chain of Command Colonel Harry Lewis, Regimental Commander Captain Dick Gibson, B Company Commander (Carried CPT Gibson from battlefield when CPT was wounded) BG James Gavin chewed my father out for not having his helmet on after dropping CPT Gibson at the aid station. Helmet lost while carrying the captain to safety
