COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Carl Beck | 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

8:30   |   Carl Beck was facing kids and old men on the German side. They had been thrown into the battle at Bastogne to distract from the SS units which were scrambling to retreat. One of the medics got a Silver Star that day for saving a wounded man while under fire. It was cold and miserable and you felt like the German 88's were pointed right at you. Part 3 of 3.
