Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bill Morris | 309th Ordnance Division, 7th Army Group - Army

7:15   |   His job was to keep the tanks going in Cold War Germany and he did just that, including going to school just on turrets. Bill Morris recalls that school in the foothills of the Swiss Alps and also remembers the all night engine overhauls on the mighty tanks. There was even some excitement when he made a wrong turn and drove his maintenance truck into East Berlin.
