Farewell to First Lt. James H. Dahlmann 187th First Combat Division
#1

My wife's grandfather, James H. Dahlmann passed away on November 26th.

 

Jim served as a first lieutenant for the 187th Combat Army Corps of Engineers in World War II under General Montgomery and Patton and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. His outfit fell upon a German Concentration Camp and helped liberate its many detainees. Jim was awarded the Distinguished Silver Star for Gallantry in Action at the Roer River in Holland in 1945.

 

His story can be found here (along with a picture of him on Page 79): http://www.6thcorpscombatengineers.com/docs/187thEngineers/187th%20Engineer%20History.pdf

 

 

He was a true hero, and a good man, who will be sorely missed by his friends and family.

I see this is your first post. A sad one nonetheless, but still one that beautifully honors his memory and that of the 187th.

 

Thank you for sharing this with us. Our condolences to you and your family.
