COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

5:40   |   Herman Buffington was First Scout, which meant he was alone and under fire often. He was always hoping the others would catch up and spread the fire around a little. The Japanese snipers were good shots, and way too many had survived the merciless shelling from the Navy's big guns. He was also the company Runner, a storied position in the Army.
