Recollections of a 82 year old vet from the Hurtgen Forest.
Some funny, some sad, it always amazes me how these fellows can see the humour in such terrible situations.
One of the funniest parts is when he teaches a young french lad some american. The lad is standing on top of a hedgerow with his sister, she's saluting with her hand to the right eye and her younger brother is giving the Sieg Heil and yelling Bonjour. So Sparky calls the little lad over, says bonjour, hello, the kids says hello bonjour, the kid understands hello means bonjour. So then Sparky teachs him to say loser. Later the kid is up on the bank giving the sieg and yelling "Hello Losers" to all the passing GI's classic sense of humour.
Quite long but worth a look.
