Kermit Harden - World War II

Kermit Harden served in the United States Army during World War II. He saw combat with the 94th Division near Lorient, France, where he was captured while on patrol. Harden was interrogated before being held captive for forty-five days. He was released when Germany exchanged American prisoners for able-bodied German POWs. Later, Harden fought on the front lines at the Battle of the Bulge.
