COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Bob Uhl | K Company, 114th Infantry Regiment, 44th Infantry Division

3:41   |   When Bob Uhl was made a runner, he was given a carbine. It was lighter than his M-1, but the limited range caused him to go back to the powerful rifle for his personal weapon. He never had an incident in his unit of men wounding themselves to get out of duty, but there were plenty of wounded feet from improper footwear. Fortunately, new boots designed for the cold, wet winter conditions were issued.
