Glenn Heath in his new US army gear in Kentucky in 1942, prior to leaving for maneuvers in South Carolina and Arizona, and finally to Europe to help defeat the Nazis. He wanted to be a conscientious objector, but this was not allowed. Instead, the Army let him become a medic, so that in fact he was saving lives rather than shooting at people. He helped liberate the Nazi concentration camps as the Allies moved along the Western Front into eastern France and Germany.
