A TYPICAL SOUVENIR  ITALY 1944 / 1945

Part 14

A final salute to the veterans of the US 5th Army

Unit patches. US 5th Army
Picture. The main units of the fifth Army.
Taken from "19 Days from the Apennines to the Alps".
(coll. Burridge)
And a special salute to:

John Burridge!

John was in the 363rd Infantry Regiment of the US 91st Division (5th Army).

But, of course, it was not his unit alone that did the job.
John had many thousands of comrades. And all risked their lives to do a great job and free Europe from a totalitarian system.

We should always be grateful to them!

And for sure NOW as it is about 60 years ago that these events took place!
Only a very few of these GI's are still alive!

LET US ALWAYS REMEMBER THEM!

THE END
