Served with Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. He was portrayed by Matthew Leitch in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers."

He had quickly risen through the ranks, making the rank of Company 1st Sergeant, he would later turn that rank in, when he thought he could do better to be with the men he had fought alongside of during the war, self-demoting to Staff Sergeant, and Platoon Leader.

According to the miniseries "Band of Brothers," the members of Easy Company all lost touch with Talbert after the war, until he showed up at a reunion in 1981, shortly before his death.
