Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Hubert Aaron | E Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division - Army

6:05   |   Hubert Aaron says, "I know I'm going to heaven because I spent three months in hell at Anzio." During this battle, he directed some artillery fire that was highly accurate, but then he was on the receiving end as an incoming enemy round put him in the hospital with a concussion. After being pinned down for three months and nearly being pushed back into the sea, the Allies finally prevailed.
