I was a section leader, serving eleven months in the European theater of operations. I was in charge of a sixteen man section, which was comprised of two 81mm mortar crews, and directed the emplacement of the guns. I made observations of the terrain and established the observation post. In addition, I was responsible for the equipment of the men and the care of the guns. When the war ended, I was in Innsbruck, Austria.
