(2391) My grandfather Sol Haft was in the 491st in the 11th armored. He passed away around 1992. I know almost nothing of his experience, as my father said he never talked about it. The only story I actually know is he said he once fell asleep in a barn, and when he woke up everything around him at been "shelled". He was so tired that he had slept through it.

Attached is a photo of a pin he had.

Feel free to reach out if you have a relative with the same story!

My father Horace Davis was in the 491st and had a similar experience. He drove a Half Track and he and another soldier were separated from the battery and saw a barn that they were going to sleep in but decided to sleep under the Half Track. When they awoke the barn had been completely destroyed and they slept through it. He didnt speak much of his experiences mostly he talked of his fellow soldiers.
