Sergeant Erich Samenfeld

My father served as a Tech Sergeant in the United States Army in World War II. This picture was taken in Alsace Lorraine, March 2, 1945. My dad was in the 276th Infantry Division. Elicke Sicilia told me that in Alsace Lorraine they fought in the battle of the Colmar Pocket where they were surrounded on 3 sides by the Germans. They were saved when Patton's army came through.
