He was severely wounded just days before the war ended and spent months in the hospital, eventually discharged (medical) at Camp Atterbury, Indiana in September 1945.

He went to ocs at ft Benning until Sept 1944. He received a purple heart for the battle near saaurlautern because of a mine explosion March 18, 1945 (they had to amputate a lge).
