What was your experience in the 10th like?

"It was a learning experience. I and my comrades learned   how to take care of ourselves in all different kinds of weather and also at   different altitudes. We learned also to always be alert to what was around us   and be forever on our guard. We later came to realize what an honor it was to   serve in the 10th."

Why did you join the 10th?

"I was drafted into World War II. When I said that I could   ski that is how I became a 10th Mountain Soldier."
