4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st/508th, deployed to Afghanistan in 2012
Charles Hudson (r) and an unidentified friend in photo probably taken in 1943. 
   Charles is believed to have been in Company C but prior to the 508th deploying overseas he sustained an injury in a practice jump which is presumed to have occurred at Camp Mackall and he was removed from jump status.
   After recovery, Charles was reassigned to the 90th Infantry Division and fought with them from Normandy to the Battle of the Rhineland while, according to his son, "liberating many a wine cellar along the way."  It was an odd twist of fate that Charles' new unit, the 358th Infantry Regiment, made contact with the 508th from the beaches on or about June 10. This brought the 508th into the American lines with them moving to the south and the 358th moving to the west. Whether Hudson made contact with any of his friends from the 508th is something unlikely to ever be answered.
   Charles  was severely wounded during the Battle of Rhineland and airlifted back to the States in March 1945.
