Delmer Combs & Roy Clemons Reunion

Delmer Combs and Roy Clemons fought together in the 83rd Infantry Division in WWII. They met at a replacement camp in France, where Mr. Clemons joined the fighting unit. Defying all odds by surviving battle on the front lines in such places as the Hurtgen Forest, the Ardennes, and at the Rhine River, they are reunited for the first time in sixty-three years. In this interview, they talk about their lives before the war, their close calls, and even how Mr. Combs untangled Mr. Clemons from a fence in the midst of German machine gun fire to save his life.
