I was in Co. L, 242 Regiment of the Rainbow. The division went to France in November, 1944 and was put into the line north of Strasbourg, France. The division was mauled by a German offensive in January 1945 around Hagenau, France. In the spring of 1945 the division attacked across the Rhine and operated in Bavaria to the end of the war. They liberated the concentration camp at Dachau and also invested Schweinfurt, the leading ball-bearing works in Germany.
