Summary
Discusses being drafted, going through 2 basic trainings and serving on various bases before being trained as a mechanic and being transferred to the 10th Mountain Division. He was assigned to D Company of the 126th Engineers, which functioned to support the infantry. He landed in Naples in January and went to Pisa. It was his duty to maintain the tramway engines. He says the biggest problem was the trucks having flat tires because of the shrapnel on the roads. He also tells a story of a tractor driver that accidentally backed his vehicle off a cliff while trying to evade German artillery fire. The driver jumped and survived. He did not have the winter and mountain training of many of the 10th Mountain troops, so his experience is different from many others
Note
