Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Will Jasmund | Headquarters and Service Company, 158th Engineer Combat Battalion

3:50   |   Before he left Europe, Will Jasmund had the task of driving the mess hall garbage to the dump. When he saw the French civilians digging through it, he felt so sorry for them that he began to save good food and brought it for them. He volunteered for the Pacific, but the war ended there, so he made a triumphant return to New York. (This interview made possible with the support of RICHARD MCDONALD)
