COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Herman Buffington | K Company, 303rd Battalion, 3rd Regiment, 96th Infantry Division - Army

4:36   |   It was late night guard duty and Herman Buffington heard something. Then he saw a figure crouched in the brush. When the next flare went up, he sighted and fired. The figure didn't move so he shot him again. When he found out why there was no reaction, all he could do was laugh. He did get a souvenir out of the encounter, a silk Japanese flag.
