Memories of Edward J. Santos
"...My grandfather Edward J. Santos often told us stories about the difficult river crossings and captures of strategic bridges. He mentioned how the danger of sniper fire was always etched in his mind. My grandfather spoke very fondly of a German family in a small village who were friendly toward the allies, and often offered them meals and a place to rest. He spoke of the attrocities of Gardelegan and the cemetary that was constructed there. At one time he had done an interview with a Boston news channel and gave his account of some of the terrible things he had wittnessed. My entire family, and myself, are very proud of his service and contribution to our great land..."
Roland D. Santos, Grandson to Edward J. Santos.
