COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Ed Pepping | 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

5:38   |   Just before his plane took off for the D-Day drop, Airborne medic Ed Pepping was ordered onto a different plane. This proved to be most fortunate. He suffered a hard landing, though, injuring his neck. Still, he persisted in the battle for 15 days, caring for the wounded until his luck ran out. (This interview made possible with the support of JOHN J. FITZGERALD.)
