Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Clarence Higginbotham | Company E, 114th Infantry Regiment, 44th Division, 7th Army

5:42   |   While not in the midst of combat, Higginbotham and his company were taking some time to go around a flank. Suddenly, they heard the firing of enemy machine guns and, before he knew it, Higginbotham was hit in both of his legs, leaving him unable to stand or walk. He was transported by railroad to a hospital in England. (This interview made possible with the support of ANITA ENDRIS MANUEL.)
