James Hull - World War II

James Hull served in a Field Artillery unit with the 83rd Infantry Division during World War II. In Yeovil, England, Hull prepared and waterproofed guns for D-Day. The unit landed on Omaha Beach roughly two weeks after D-Day, and later saw combat in the Hürtgen Forest and during the Battle of the Bulge. Hull was with the unit which held the Truman Bridge, the only bridge at the Elbe River at the end of the war in Europe.
