Hello dear forum members,
This saturday I am having dinner with Al Cimperman, who was First Sgt. of the 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division at the time of D-Day. He left the army as Battalion Sgt. Major after serving the entire war from 1942 until 1945. He is supposedly mentioned in a few published first-hand accounts of the landings.
I would like, as a favor to you all, to make a list of questions that you all would like for me to ask him. If there was anything specific you ever wanted to know about the D-Day landings, or the entire war from a 1st I.D. soldier's perspective, now is your chance. Men like Al are a dying breed and it is important that we get every bit of their stories before they go.
Feel free to add whatever questions you would like. I will make a list of them and ask as many of them as possible.
