Ed LaPorta | G Company, 6th Armored Infantry Regiment, 1st Armored Division - Army

5:06   |   When the 1st Armored Division hit Casablanca, there was no opposition, but along the coast at Oran, it was a different story. Ed LaPorta had the landing craft blown out from under him, but thanks to his training, he made it to shore. By the time the German fortress was knocked out, his company had suffered 80% casualties.
