“Morris Grayson proudly served in the 3rd Army, 276th Armored Artillery Battalion, Battery B. He shipped out to Utah Beach, Normandy, landing on August 25, 1944. Grayson’s main job was driving a jeep taking messages to headquarters, driving tanks and going out in front of the battalion to find a place for them to camp.”
“He did drive Colonel Patton a couple of times. He said Patton was a lot smarter than most and was always watching what was happening around him.”
“He won a bronze star for heroism.”
“He was sworn in with the one and only Elvis Presley!”
“Uncle Toby wasn’t all that impressed of Elvis’ popularity back in the day, but did say they were good buddies.”
“Phyllis Snyder signed up to join the Marine Corps as soon as she was old enough in February of 1943 and started active duty May 31, 1943.”
“She was among the first women to join the Marine Corps.”
“She became an aircraft mechanic and was honorably discharged from the Aviation Reserve Women’s squadron in September of 1945.”
