Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Tom Hanlon | 2nd Battalion, 350th Infantry Regiment, 88th Infantry Division

5:34   |   Tom Hanlon recalls when his unit received brightly colored markers to lay out on the road when they were traveling, to keep friendly planes from mistaking them for Germans. Just because he was a telephone wireman, it did not mean he was not in danger and he has the decoration to prove it. (This interview made possible with the support of MS. KETURAH THUNDER-HAAB.)
