He didn't talk much about his experience there but we know that he saw combat as he operated a machine gun and was at the Battle of the Bulge.
Thats wild, to think he was likely our age now or younger going through that stuff, true grit, bless these men, they fought and died so that one day their grandsons could spend their days pissing about on the internet in peace.
