Webmaster's Note: I received the following email from Dr. Carmichael in January, 2007. It is reprinted here with his permission.

"I served with 100th ID in combat from oct 44' to the end of the war receiving the CIB, purple heart and bronze star. In oct 45 the 100th left Europe (and me) behind in Stuttgart. I was transferred to the 387th in Oct then stationed in Heidelberg."

The most interesting event while with the 387th was serving in Patton's funeral. Our half tracks were used to transport Patton's body from the hospital to the bahnfof in Heidelberg. Flowers were placed on the tracks and the procession moved slowly to the station. I was an assigned driver in the 387th company but did not drive a track in the procession."
