My Father In Uniform / Kassel, Germany

The long medal with the rifle on it was earned by my dad for being a combat veteran. It is known as the Combat Infantryman's Badge (CIB). Elicke Sicilia told me that my dad was injured when the jeep that he was driving ran over a land mine. He said that my dad shouldv'e gotten a Purple Heart for that, but he didn't care. He just wanted to get back and do his job.
