COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Lou Mafrice | A Company, 83rd Medical Battalion, 13th Armored Division

5:39   |   It was a rough crossing for Lou Mafrice. Not only was he seasick, but a bulkhead door slammed on his hand and took off a bit of finger. When his unit got into combat in France, the commanding general insisted on leading at the front. That cost him. As the Battle of the Bulge loomed, Lou's armored outfit was put under the command of George Patton.
