Re: Another WWII tribute photos & history
The Rhine crossing was on March 26, 1945. I Company crossed the Rhine, just south of Oberwesel, in the second wave and captured the heights above the town of Kaub on the east bank (near the Lorelei Rock). I Company suffered 13 missing in action during the crossing – most likely from the loss of one of their boats. Eye witness accounts saw an I Company boat machined gunned mid stream and sunk with no apparent survivors.
The unit rested March 30 – April 2 near Rauenthal, Germany.
