|5th Infantry Division Regimental Cover|
The regimental history has NO index, no table of contents, no page numbers and goes only by dates. Quite fascinating but it's now beginning to be divided by post it notes and book marks. I am about 1/3 of the way through it. I'm attaching a photo of the front of it.
My dad joined the 50th Field Artillery of the 5th Division in 1939 and he went from Iceland to Czechoslovakia i.e. the whole war with this division. Marching just like the men on the cover. I have a story of him meeting the Russians. Plus his interviews I recorded, I'm going back through those and now understanding some of what he spoke of. He was in so many battles, it is amazing he survived. These are just his Army stories, I have some stories of his Navy exploits that are just as harrowing! I am so proud to do this though. I want to tell his story. Bravest man I ever knew and so unassuming about it all. But it may be after New Years before I get the first article accomplished.
