My father, Richard E. Powers, served with the 104th Infantry Regiment as a part of the 26th "Yankee" Infantry Division. They fought as a part of General Patton's Third US Army. Both Dad and his regiment experienced many firsts while fighting in the European Theater of Operations. These men were citizens one moment and soldiers the next. None were professional soldiers, but they experienced the same privation, fears, and terror as their professional comrades. Many displayed courage beyond imagination, but if they survived to talk about their experiences, they rarely did. My dad's generation was a generation of gentlemen who were very humble. Their sufferings and successes were a means to an end not to be displayed as a badge of honor. Dad was typical of his generation, from his voluntary enlistment to his combat experience across the European continent. His story is not exceptional in its difference from other soldiers' stories but is exceptional in its commonality. You will follow Dad from his decision to enlist to his return to the country he loved including the 202 days the 104th Infantry Regiment spent in combat. My father-One Man in Ten Million.
