4:15   |   Clarence Higginbotham grew up in Georgia and studied for a little bit at the University of Georgia before enlisting in the Army. He was granted access into the Army Specialized Training Program, but once that was disbanded he was sent to Fort Riley for basic training. Once he was ready, he was shipped overseas to France. He talks about the living conditions he had to endure for the beginning of his time in the war. (This interview made possible with the support of ANITA ENDRIS MANUEL.)
