    Default Soldier's Album--Liberation of Buchenwald

    Paperwork and personal photos of a U.S soldier who helped liberate Buchenwald concentration camp........includes disturbing/graphic photos. I have not found much background on this particular soldier. Never having served in the military, or experienced war first hand, I can't imagine what he went through emotionally during and after his service.

    Was the album put together by Samuel Tallarico or his brother Fred (Freddy)? The last two images show both names. Samuel on the Veteran Admin envelope and Freddy on the ship board International Date line crossing certificate in August 1945. Which of the brothers took the photos? I notice in the death notice of Samuel in 1992, Fred was still alive. Samuel is a said to be a Signals Staff Sergeant, Fred a P.F.C.
