Show Notes

In this final episode of the Bill Parker series, after linking up with the Russian Army at the River Elbe, T/Sgt Parker makes it to Victory in Europe day but his trip home is delayed after a jeep accident. He also tells us a great story about an orphaned boy who sought help from Bill and his unit, how Bill took care of him and how that young boy was smuggled back to the US on a troop ship. Bill also talks very poignantly about his struggles with PTSD that continue to this day as a 97 year old man.
