Description

Oye discusses his first landing in Civitavecchia and the first combat that he saw during the war. He talks about the team that he was with and how they were commanded to put their weapons aside and become litter-bearers to help the medics out. Next, he talks about the various battles that he was involved with including Bruyeres, Lost Battalion and Champagne Campaign. During their free time, he would have somebody drive him into Nice, France where he would be able to relax and drink for a few hours before heading back into battle. While battling cold weather, he would also getting a minor wound, in which a bullet would penetrate his helmet, leaving a hole in it but only grazing his head. He would continue on in combat and would be in Europe all the way until the end for the Gothic Line push. Once completed, the German soldiers retreated and he would be able to head back to the United States, having enough points to do so.
