Interview with WWII Veteran Walter Reinhold at the VA Medical Center in Orlando, FL May 26th, 2010.
Walter was born in Bavaria and sent to the U.S. at age 14 along with his brother. His parents stayed in Germany, but lost everything with "Kristallnacht". President Roosevelt's assistant later arranged for Walter Reinhold's parents to come to the United States.
Veteran Reinhold relates his experiences in the U.S. Army serving in the makeshift military government in Munich and his first driving lesson: when he was ordered to drive a vehicle across the Rhine river.
