WWII Veterans Visit Sicily-Rome: Ernest Spencer, Jr.

WWII Veteran Ernest Spencer, Jr., reflects in front of Capt. Henry T. Waskow’s grave. Spencer fought 550 straight days of combat through five major battles, from North Africa through Sicily, Cassino, all the way to Verona, Italy when the war ended. His unit had 4-90mm anti-aircraft guns that shot more than 15,000 shells throughout its time in the war. One of his best buddies, who was in a different unit, was killed by a German shell in Italy, while helping a wounded comrade.
