Geronimo Fragua, World War II and Korean War Veteran and a resident of Jemez Pueblo, spoke to Allen Whitt, a volunteer with the Veteran’s History Project in November 2011. These audio clips are only a portion of that interview. The entire interview can be heard at the Veteran’s History Project at the Library of Congress in Washington DC. The photos used in this blog are from Wikipedia and the Library of Congress Archives and were not taken by Mr. Fragua.  Listen to what it was like to push through the “Ruhr Pocket”and be there when the US liberated Dachau     and what it was like to go into Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest Eagle’s   Nest part 2  What important things does Mr. Fragua want listeners to know about his experiences  in World War II
