I just acquired a grouping belonging to T/Sgt. George W. Bleier, USAAF, who fought on Iwo Jima as a signals NCO. What is interesting about his dog tags is the set which he wore has "C" (Catholic, which he was) on them, while there is a second tag showing a "P" (Protestant, which he was not.) Who says they don't make mistakes. Jack

On the battlefield, Pfc Edward Ahrens, an Able Company BAR man, lay dying, soaked in his own blood.

 

As his company commander, Lew Walt cradled him in his arms, he surveyed the scene around them. Nearby lay a Japanese officer, a sergeant, and thirteen enlisted men, all dead. Ahrens had been shot twice in the chest and bayoneted three times. He whispered to Walt, "Captain, they tried to come over me last night, but I don't think they made it." Choking back tears, Walt replied softly, "They didn't, Eddy. They didn't."
