Clabe Sherman: you probably don’t recognize the name. He was the 38-year old first sergeant from Tennessee who led an assault on the German forces entrenched on a hill at Kasserine Pass, North Africa. “Find out what’s on that hill and take it out,” he told the men of his Company C Tank Destroyer Battalion. And they did. Sherman survived to be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and retire as a Master Sergeant in 1946. Here are some servicemen who didn’t survive.
