* Bob was an expert marksman. He had a 30-06 with scope and he was used when the unit needed a sharpshooter. He never talked about the fighting and killing. Talked about the good time with buddies and the time he ran into a friend from home….lifetime friends after that. Turned out to be a photographer for the Saginaw News.Bob worked for the U.S. Postal system when he returned. Spent many years deer hunting with the Army rifle he was allowed to bring home.
* Bob landed in Cherbourg, France after the Allies constructed the artificial harbor, then continued on to Germany.
