I was not, however I will always be so proud of my Father. Roger Foehringer Sr. He was a PFC with the 99th Infantry Division WWII He was 924th FA. 105 Howizer. He was Captured at Bulligen Belgium on Dec 17th 1944 by the 1st SS Panzer Unit. He spent 3 1/2 months as a POW in Germany until 4-1-45 (Easter Sunday) when he and 4 other GIs escaped and made it back to the front lines. He eventually made it home here to Chicago on VE day, May 8th. He wrote of his experience and spoke to many different organizations over the years. My brother and I accompanied my father back to Belgiun and Germany to retraced his steps in 1990 and it was truly amazing. He will always be my Hero !

Please let me know if you can identify the soldier walking in the center of this photo wearing the helmet and looking to his left. He is also carrying a pistol. I think he was my late father but don't know how to get any information. I have photos he took of Mauthausen but I would like to know if he is in that particular photo as it really looks like him.
Thanks to all who have served.

U.S. Army. Drafted in March '70 from lottery numbers pulled in '69. Fort Knox, KY for basic training, then to Ft. Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska until 2 year obligation was up. Was in the 808th Engineering Batallion. I was a specialist 4 (E-4) and my MOS was 52B20 (vehicle maintenance). Never got sent to Viet Nam, and happy about that.
