Phil Andersen wrote, "In the late summer of 1945, the American; generals invited the G.I.s to watch a football game in the Olympic (sic) Stadium to celebrate our victory over Hitler. Since I was in Frankfurt on leave, Hal and I went together.; The experience was one of the highlights of my life. The Olympic (sic) Stadium was completely filled with American combat soldiers dressed in khakis. In the crowd were General Eisenhower, our supreme commander, Mickey Rooney, a movie star, and other important people. It meant so much for me to be there with my brother." The stadium both men saw this game at the Waldstadion stadium in Frankfurt. The Olympic Stadium was in Berlin.
