Thank you for sharing T5 George Chandler memorial with us. My father, Walter N. Curlock, T4, 1058th PC & R Group, was welding on the Ludendorf Bridge when it collapsed and fell into the Rhine River. My father injured his back badly, but he told me although he was in shock at the time, he never-the-less searched up and down the river trying to find his buddies who had fell into the raging river after the collapse if the bridge. It was a traumatic time for all those involved.

I can't even imagine what they went through that day. It's the stuff that makes up nightmares!
