Okay there is a few things i would like to say about Tracy's post. One thing is that he was taken prisoner on December 24, 1944. He never did talk about it but who would. She is my cousin so that is why i know her. My great-grandpa were very close and If she is going to post something she should at least make it right. The one thing that I know is that he said that they had him lined up to be shot but they let him go and he did not know why.HE also came out 80 lbs. Thank you for reading this if you do.

I did get the year wrong. That was a simple mis-typing but the other information of what I typed is correct. My dear cousin, Seth, you are right, the Germans did line up Grandpa (and his men) and pointed his own tank right at them. But a German officer came quickly and said not to shoot them, they were taking them as POWs instead. So, he was not "let go" as you claim. What you don't know is that at the time he was found by the Germans it was widely known that the Germans were not taking prisoners. Grandpa did share stories with some of us and your cousin, Jeff, had the honor of being the one who Grandpa shared the day he was captured with. It is an amazing and faith inspiring story! Be proud of your Great-Grandpa...He was an amazing man who did incredibles things during the war but even more so after the war! God bless!
