Abstract Madsen (b. 1925) details his family genealogy and recalls his childhood in rural Utah. He was inducted into the army when he turned eighteen and was assigned to the 86th Infantry Division and sent to Louisiana for jungle warfare training. Sent to Europe, instead of the Pacific, Madsen saw combat in France and Germany. Other topics covered include descriptions of the Alsace-Lorraine area, the deaths of fellow soldiers, the "Froidenberg Farm" skirmish, being wounded and receiving medical care, and his long convalescence including time spent at Bushnell military hospital in Brigham City, Utah. Madsen also talks about going to law school, being recruited by Ernest Wilkinson when he was a Senior, and joining the firm of Wilkinson, Cragun and Barker, which specialized in Indian claims cases. He left there for a job at AT&T, from which he retired. 126 pages.
