Herman W. Jahnigen Tribute on You Tube
Ripley County Indiana's most decorated veteran. He was a member of the 508th Parachute Infantry of the 82nd Airborne Division and participated in the D-Day landing at Normandy. He also participated in the Battle of the Bulge and was wounded on June 9, 1944 in the European Theatre. Mr. Jahnigen's citations included the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Silver Star, European Campaign Medal, Victory Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Distinguished Unit Citation, French Fourragere, Netherlands Citation, and the Normandy, Belgium, French, and American Defense Medals. On June 27, 1945 he received a battlefield commission promoting him to Lieutenant.
After two hours of converting video I finally managed to get it right and uploaded to YouTube. Herman was a dear friend of mine and I feel he never received the credit he deserved. Here with the Internet and YouTube all can give him the credit he well deserved for helping make the USA free for you and I. Please forward this link to others you know.
