WWII Veteran Robert Erskine
Last month I had the honor and privilege to interview World War II Veteran, Robert Erskine, in Jupiter, Florida. Mr. Erskine was a medic who rose to the rank of Sergeant while serving in the 78th Infantry Division, 303 Medical Battalion. Sgt. Erskine is a Battle of the Bulge Veteran, having participated in three major battle campaigns including the Ardennes, Rhineland, and Central Europe. In total, Sgt. Erskine was deployed to England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany. For his efforts, Sgt. Erskine received three bronze battle stars, two Bronze Star medals for valor at the Battle of the Bulge and the Remagen Bridge crossing. France has also honored Robert Erskine with the French Legion of Honor for his service in defending and liberating French soil. Stay tuned for a video excerpt from the WWII oral history interview.
