103rd Infantry 43rd Div. Co. 'D'- Army
My grandfather was a Staff Sgt. in the Pacific Theater.He fought in the Battle of Guadal Canal, Luzon and N. Solomon.His name was Benoit Metivier or "Big Ben".
He was from Westbrook, Maine.
I am looking for anyone that knew him in WWII.I have an enourmous amount of pictures of him in action and hanging out with his fellow soldiers. I would love to share them. Are there any of his war buddies out there?
Benoit died in 1967 of a heart attack due to the malaria he picked up during the war.I never met him, but would love to hear some stories.
