Curtis Banker | 103rd Infantry Regiment, 43rd Infantry Division - Army

4:21   |   Curtis Banker was with an armored artillery unit in the push to take back the Philippines when he had to be evacuated with a serious illness. He recovered fine but he nearly wound up as an unassigned replacement when he was ready to return to service. He said no, I am going back to my own unit. After the atomic bomb settled the war, he got a brief look at the homeland of the enemy.
