COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jim Sample | 93rd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron (Mechanized), 13th Armored Division - Army

6:26   |   There was a little excitement on Jim Sample's trip home when lookouts on the ship spotted a stray mine in the water. They safely avoided that and, after a nice furlough, he had to finish out his enlistment. He became a cook for a while and then got to use the first skill he learned in the Army to finish up.
