New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 16, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Saturday, July 16, 2005 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 7APRISONER CONTINUED FROM Page 1AVeteran spent almost a year as prisoner of war were taken to Budapest for interrogation. He admitted the questioning was tough but declined to go into detail. “My wife always asks me about it, but why talk about those things,” he said. From a box on a high shelf in his office, Bradley pulled out the original identification paperwork the Germans gave him before sending him to the camp. In a small black and white photo glued to the yellowed document, the young airman looked slightly defiant. For seven months, Bradley stayed at Stalag Luft 4, near Belgard, before being transferred to Stalag Luft I, near Barth, Germany. His existence in the camp was not physically difficult — Germans prized even foreign flyers and did not make the men work — but, they were almost always hungry. “We ate nearly anything we could find, even garbage,” he said. At Christmas, the Red Cross was allowed to bring parcels into camp. The dried raisins, chocolate candy bar, pound of powered milk and two packs of cigarettes helped to bring a slight glimmer of holiday cheer. “The guards treated us all right because many of them had relatives who were in POW camps in Texas,” Bradley recalled. The men received regular updates on the war’s progress from other prisoners who joined the group almost daily, but they still were not prepared for liberation. Set free “One day we just woke up and all the guards were gone,” Bradley said. “A Russian soldier rode by on a horse and asked us if we were German or American. We told him we were American and he told us to tear down the fence. So, we did.” While many of the men stayed in camp, waiting for the planes they were sure would come and get them, Bradley and another prisoner when exploring. When they made it into Barth, they saw white flags hanging from all the windows. The men procured a Mercedes Benz from another Russian, for one pack of cigarettes, and drove it around until it ran out of gas. Two weeks later, the 8th Air Force came to fly them out of Germany. It took two days to get them all to France. “I was allowed to wire my parents to tell them I was still alive,” he said. He sailed home on a boat from Dieppe, France, and arrived in New York. “It was nice to sail past the Statue of Liberty," he admitted. “Shortly after that, we dropped the bomb on Japan, and the war was finally over.” A token of thanks Displayed proudly on the wall of his office, Bradley's Purple Heart serves as a reminder of his service to his country. Three months ago, he received another medal, unexpectedly, to serve as a reminder of his time in captivity. “Remember that young girl who was captured in Iraq last year,” he said. “Well, I didn’t know it, but the government created a POW medal for her. I got mine in the mail earlier this year.” The new medal, created after Jessica Lynch’s highly publicized IO days in captivity, hangs in a separate shadow box, above the Purple Heart. Bradley said he was glad it gave him a reminder of this year’s important anniversary. “I don’t think about it often, but then I realized it all happened 61 years ago,” he said. "That’s important, don’t you think?”This devotional page and directory is made POSSIBLE BY THESE BUSINESSES WHO ENCOURAGE ALL OF US TO ATTEND WORSHIP SERVICES.
