COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Emil DeDonato | 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division - Army

8:09   |   His unit was overextended and the order came, get out of there! Emil DeDonato was under fire in Sicily when he organized his men and got them clear of the danger. He didn't know it until after the war, but this got him a cluster for his Bronze Star. It was just another close call like the ones he had in North Africa.
