Abstract Layton (b. 1917) grew up in Oakley, Idaho. He discusses his early family life, schooling, jobs, and attending the University of Utah, where he participated in ROTC. He was called up to active duty and sent to Fort Ord, California, working on a survey crew. Assigned as a gunnery instructor at Fort Skill, Oklahoma, he joined the 770th Field Artillery Battalion. He entered combat at Brest, France, in late July 1944, and moved across France, Belgium, and to the German border. Injured by an exploding mine, he was evacuated to the States and eventually to Bushnell Hospital in Brigham City, Utah. He was separated from the Army in 1945, and subsequently started the Layton Construction Company. Interviewed by Winston Erickson. 65 pages.
