COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

6:35   |   After Bastogne had been relieved, Carl Beck's Airborne unit moved toward Luxembourg. It was just a matter of time until it was all over. He had been wounded slightly by shrapnel and didn't want the Purple Heart but, when the points system was devised, it was worth five points. He went looking for the medic who treated him.
