Fought in The Battle of the Bulge....his Unit was one of the heaviest hit. The "393" Story told to his Grandson (one of many) that it was a miserable experience..not just the extreme fighting against the Germans but the extreme cold. Example, so cold boots would freeze to his feet.
This bio is not complete, have other things I want to add, waiting on facts from his Grandson, my Cousin.
Uncle Russell was just the greatest. He was kind, honest,and so handsome! I saw a photo of him and my Aunt Alleyne shortly after they married, he is in Uniform and just so dashing! I loved him very much.
