179th INF, Co.L...Rome-Arno/Rhineland campaigns
Looking for someone who may have known my uncle Marvin E. Tingle who was a technician 5th class, clerk/typist was his mil occ splty. He's long gone now but was a character I'll never forget. As a kid, I remember hearing him tell of being forced to hide in a large brush-covered bomb crater with 8 other men and sneaking out into the frigid cold night through the snow to a farmhouse up the hill to beg/buy eggs, wiping out his tracks as best he could on the return to their bomb crater. He lost several toes to frostbite, suffered shellshock and was awarded some medals included the bronze star twice. It was kinda ironic that after surviving the war, that should have killed him, he was robbed and murdered in his Kentucky home, which should have been safe, in the mid-seventies.
