Sgt. Clifford Howard Wilford is a veteran from the 10th Regiment of the 5th Infantry Division. He has been with the division even before the war began and stayed with them till the very end. From Normandy to Czechoslovakia, he’s seen it all.

The picture above was taken after the Sauer River Crossing on February 9th, 1945, by the 10th and 11th regiment at Weilerbach, Luxembourg near the border with Germany. Wilford was one of them to cross and breach through the Siegfried line!

    I remember uncle Clifford fondly from my youth in Kentucky. His family adored him as he was always the flashy, dashing apple of their eye. He lived a full productive life and left behind a fitting example of patriotism and duty.
