||Wounded on October 4th 1944.
He told us that he and his men were buttoned up inside their tank for a long time and they ran out of water. He decided to go outside the tank to get a 'Jerry Can' of water for his men and him. When he went outside the tank a sniper from a house shot and wounded him. The tank shot the house and maybe the sniper also. He went many days before getting medical help. He was not sure if they were still in Belgium at the time, but he thought they might have crossed into Germany. After that the war was over for him, but he had to spend a long time in the hospital.
