Abstract

Flaherty signed up for the Navy but was transferred to the U.S. Army to work locomotives. He arrived in Wales and then came into Le Havre, France in 1944. He shares stories of delivering supplies to the English in Holland and of assisting in the transportation of liberated concentration camp inmates from Germany into Poland and elsewhere. Made 4 or 5 trips out of the concentration camps. The Russians tried to stop them from taking survivors at one point. When he returned to the States he ran into Joe Louis in the Fort Dix gymnasium.
