Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Ben Martinez | 2nd Battalion Aid Station, 351st Infantry Regiment, 88th Infantry Division

6:56   |   During his time aiding the fight in Italy, Martinez remembers his first battle in Lajatico just before approaching the Arno River. After that, the next big mission was getting to Castel del Rio on the Gothic line. All the while more and more casualties were piling up on the medical team, meaning they always had to conduct treatments quickly and efficiently. (This interview made possible with the support of HELEN & ED BUDNY.)
