Remembering the Battle of the Bulge
Henry "Hank" Skowronski (right) shares a photo taken by Carmen Gisi (left) on Dec. 20, 1944, of medical tents of the 326th Airborne Medical Company. Germans attacked the company during the Battle of the Bulge Dec. 19, 1944. Skowronski left the camera in his foxhole when he was captured after the attack. Gisi found it the next day when his unit, the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment, was called in for support. The two reunited for the first time in July 2009 and shared their story with citizens of the town Sainte-Ode 65 years later.
