When George S. Vasquez was separated from his unit during the Battle of the Bulge in Germany, he lived by his wits behind enemy lines for a month
“The whole company had just vanished in the dark,” Vasquez said.
Company K of the 424th Infantry Regiment, 106th Army Infantry Division, had been defending its positions, trying to keep the Germans from marching on to Belgium, when its members were surrounded.
“One night the company commander says we couldn’t hold anymore ... so we infiltrated out,” he said.
