Father in law was a world war 2 glider pilot
on July 15, 2017
Their courage was amazing, my dad fought with the 10th mountain in Italy. His Sargent was killed in the first week of the war so he was field promoted to Buck Sargent. One time when he was escorting a group of Germany prisoners to a detention camp one of the German prisoner struck up a conversation with him, he told him he was in a machine gun nest hidden in a building and was told to wait until my dad went back to pickup the rest of the patrol he was leading at the time so the could kill them all. My dad said his orders had been changed when he got back to his men and they were sent in a different direction. Both my dads grandparents were immigrants from Germany and my dad learned German as a young boy at his home in Missoula, MT.
