Re: Another WWII tribute photos & history
On April 2 the 353rd moved to an assembly area near the village of Kircheim (about 15 miles SW of Bad Hersfeld). This was to prepare for the final push through the Eisenach Corridor, across Thuringia to Lower Saxony. April 5-6 I Company suffered 2 killed and 6 wounded while taking the town of Fortha which was held by SS troops. April 7, the town of Rhula was captured. April 8, Freiedrichroda fell, including a military hospital.
