Honor Mission
PFC James M Siler, Veteran
USA – WWII
Bald Knob, Arkansas – 02-10-21

ABOUT THE MISSION:

On February 4, 2021 PFC James M Siler heard and responded to his last cry of “MEDIC”. He served in the Army as a field medic during the years of 1943 to 1945. “He served in the 3rd Army, 5th Infantry Division, 5th Medical Battalion, and Company C. He was a part of General Patton’s 3rd Army.” It is said that one cold winter night he and other soldiers were talking when an NCO came up to them told them to get their gear ready and on to the trucks. They rode the trucks for 24 hours to the Battle of the Bulge. For his service he was awarded: the European-African-Middle-east Campaign Ribbon with 3 Bronze Stars, the WWII Victory Medal, the Combat Medical Badge and a Bronze star. The highest honor perhaps was when he received the Knight in the French Order of the Legion of Honor for his service in during the war in France. He was involved in campaigns after D-Day: the Ardennes, Rhineland and Central Europe.
