COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jesse Oxendine | 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division - Army

4:35   |   Jesse Oxendine was sent to a replacement center near the Belgian border. It was in a marvelous old fortress and it was there that he was assigned to a glider infantry unit, part of the 82nd Airborne. He really liked the jump boots but he noticed that nearly every soldier had a Purple Heart.
