Farmer, Marvin

Marvin Farmer was drafted into the Army in 1942, and was initially trained in anti-aircraft artillery, but was subsequently transferred to the infantry. Once he arrived in France in mid 1944, he was assigned to the 116th Infantry Regiment, part of the 29th Infantry Division. He saw heavy action in Aachen, and was fighting in Germany when he was injured, just days before the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge.
