World War II and My Military Memories takes the reader from the author's beginnings in the small town of Myrtle, Mississippi where he heard many stories about the First World War from his three uncles. Then to the ROTC, getting an education at a tough war college, then into the service and lots of specialized training, and on to combat in Europe in World War II while serving most of the time in the 89th Infantry Division. There are stories about the Battle of the Bulge, the Rhine River Crossing in Germany, liberation of the Ohrdruf Concentration Camp and the then unknown horrors of the Holocaust. After the war came service in the Occupation Army with numerous escapades, some serious and many that were fun and humorous. Later came the Reserves, a near miss on the Korean War, then completing an education and building a career after the war, and finally a trip back to Europe to re-live old memories many years later that included a visit to East Germany before the Berlin wall came down.
