My great uncle, John Tapalansky, PFC was killed in action on November 16th 1944 in Stolberg Germany. Unit 413 Co. K, 104th Infanry Division. To the best of my ability, I place this as the beginning of the Battle for Stolberg Hill. It's great t find a resource like this, so thank you.1018

WWII veteran finally gets his medals.(Knight Ridder Newspapers)
Company C of the 104th Infantry Division, tenacious soldiers known as the Timberwolves. "Nothing in hell must stop the Timberwolves," was their battle slogan.
And even a brush with hell didn't stop Neil Leibman.
Late at night on Nov. 16, 1944, the Wolves roared into Stolberg, a long-embattled industrial town on the front lines in Germany. The next day (NOVEMBER 17, 1944!), the fighting was fierce when Leibman's platoon encountered heavy shelling in a factory yard.
Leibman remembers helping three or four frightened soldiers find cover. The other men in his platoon lay dead in the factory ruins _ among them James Lowe, leaving a wife and baby in Clyde, Kan. And Sidney Zinn, killed by the same shell that hit Lowe.
A mortar shell hit Leibman, too, as he staggered back to the command center. He felt the burning in his back, the shrapnel tearing through his trunk and stomach. An inch, a fraction of an inch, in either direction and he would have joined Lowe and Zinn and the thousands of others on the Taps list.
"Enough to give you religion, isn't it?" he says now.
In the chaos of war and its aftermath, Neil Leibman's sacrifice went unnoticed. That was fine with him.
He recuperated in hospitals in Belgium, Wales and at home, and went back into the army until war's end. Then he grasped at the normality most G.I.'s coveted _ marriage, three children, 10 grandchildren _ and the achievements only a few could fathom. Degrees in engineering, law, business and biblical studies from Drexel, Temple, Gratz. A thriving law practice.
Even a daughter who followed him into the military.

An update on Wilfred H. "Buster" Burrill's passing. When my Brother was asked to check for a couple items to be put in safe keeping. (He is a Constable) He came upon All of the Medals and RIbbons "Buster" had earned, Plus One BIG addition He had failed to tell us about. In 1978 long overdue, Buster was awarded the Bronze Star. Mrs. Larrabee, Buster's Sister was so kind as to present them to my Brother (A Vietnam Marine) to take care of them to which he is honored to do. God Bless All Veterans and their families for their sacrifices
