Richard enlisted at Cincinnati, OH on 23 Oct 1943 and after
completion of basic training and jump school he was assigned to the 508
PIR, probably as a replacement after the Normandy Campaign. He was
awarded the Bronze Service Arrowhead device for participation in the Holland
campaign and Airborne operations. It may also be when he earned
the Purple Heart.
