Arthur Seltzer

Arthur Seltzer, was one of tens of thousands of young Americans who on June 6, 1944, took part in the D-Day landings (3rd wave), an unprecedented invasion that took so many lives, but ultimately saved the world from being crushed under the Nazi jackboot.
On June 6 1944, Arthur Seltzer, then just 19 years old, a communications specialist with the 4th Signals Battalion, was attached to a unit of the 29th Infantry Division.
Arthur Seltzer's war did not end on D-Day. He went on to fight in the Battle of the Bulge, forever known as the greatest battle of the war, and on April 29, 1945, Arthur, who is Jewish, was with the American troops who discovered the Dachau concentration camp.

''You may never forget the people who gave their lives to make this country a free country''
