    He's been a medic with the casualty evacuation squad, always on frontline. More than 2000 wounded have been given initial care taken then away from the battlefield in 1942-1945. He was awarded when recovered after a bad concussion in the battle of Zheshuv, Poland few months earlier.
    Here's some background

    That is something; a family 'Star' with background, citation, photo and all.

    May these items be treasured and passed down through the family for generations.

    Unfortunately, I've found no uniform after he has passed away in 1993. I do keep his awards, photographs and a combat knife.
    Feel so angry with myself - I would not query him much about his war experience and in fact he was reluctant to tell, just in a way many veterans do. So many stories missed he could have told me!

    Experience of war left many painful memories.
