COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

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

3:33   |   When he got back to his outfit, the war was still ongoing, and Higginbotham was still having trouble with his legs. While making their way through Germany, it was his job to keep an eye out for young Germans who might shoot from steeples. He remembers a time in particular that a young German boy shot at and killed one of them. Shortly after, the war was over and he got to go home.
