101st Airborne Division Soldiers share personal ties to Battle of the Bulge

 

U.S. Army EuropeBastogne, Belgium – Seventy-five years ago in Bastogne, Belgium, German soldiers captured American Pfc. Marold Peterson of the 422nd Infantry Regiment, 106th Infantry Division.

Peterson escaped from the work camp where we was held prisoner, only to be captured again and killed by Hitler Youth.

Sgt. Travis Paice, the great-grandson of Peterson, said it is surreal to be in Bastogne where Peterson lived his last moments.

“Maybe he was standing right where I stood,” Paice, a Soldier with the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, said.
