Arnold Whittaker | 10th Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division - Army

7:16   |   His first night in combat, there was an artillery barrage in the rain and he lost his M-1. Not a great start for Arnold Whittaker but he found his weapon and began trying to find acceptance as a replacement. There were a lot of these green troops as they moved into Metz where they had to deal with snipers.
