Description An excerpt photo from A Foot Soldier's Diary: World War II and Beyond
Abstract U.S. Army Soldier's uniform from World War II. After Phil Andersen arrived back in the US in New York City, he wrote, "We were all excited to set our feet on American soil again. I don't have the words to express my feelings. It was a very emotional experience. When I pulled out of this same place in January 1945, I was an eighteen-year old kid. I knew nothing of what was ahead of me, and I was too green to be afraid. I didn't know then where I was going or for how long or why. I knew I would follow orders, and in that I felt safe."
