Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

5:58   |   After breaking out at Anzio. Hubert Aaron's unit marched into Rome, the only American unit to capture an enemy capitol during World War Two. He received a Silver Star for actions during that operation. When he went into St. Tropez, with dry feet for a change, he ignored his platoon leader's order to move out through an open field. Then he let his Thompson submachine gun do some talking.
