COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Fred Moston | 80th Infantry Division, 317th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Army

2:46   |   He was sent as a replacement into Le Havre where he boarded a train and headed for the front. Medic Fred Moston left the train at a stop, like most of the men. They were looking for wine, he was looking for an outhouse. When he returned, the train was gone. Rescued by a Colonel in a command car, he went into combat that day as a litter bearer.
