Larry Martin's WWII In Their Own Words



Bob Dietsch, Army Combat Engineer


Bob was a Army Combat Engineer with the 19th Combat Regiment in Italy. He fought with General Montgomery's 8th Army at Anzio, Monte Cassino, Rapido River. As a combat engineer he would disarm booby traps (boncing Betty, shoe bomb) and dig up land mines, build bridges while under attack from artillery, mortars, airplanes and small arms. Bob has a lot of his own memorabilia including German weapons, helmets, many booby traps and German propaganda that was dropped on them.

There will be a Q & A with Larry Martin following the taped interview and some war memorabilia will be on display. Families are welcome, but parental discretion is advised.
