Larry was like a father to me. We spoke on the phone several times in May just before his death. Larry told me he was in the tent when Patton slapped that soldier and that he came over to Larry and Patton spoke to him. Larry said he wasn't sure if Patton was going to yell at him too and he was a bit afraid.
I don't know the html to post a picture here so I'll just post links to 3 photos of Larry. God Bless Larry and all the other WWII Vets to die before him.

No I don’t. Larry never told me more and I didn’t pry since memories like that can bring tears to one’s eye.
A true hero. Prayers.
The Greatest Generation....
