In honor of this Veteran’s Day, Meet Generations Crossings’ veteran participant, Henry!

Henry C. Pfister Jr. was born in Mount Savage, Maryland on June 2, 1923. He graduated high school in 1941, going straight to work at an apprenticeship with the railroads. However it didn’t take long before Henry felt compelled to answer his nation’s call and join the Army to fight in World War II. He did his basic training at Fort Lee in Virginia, and then was off to Europe with Sigma Core for the U.S. Army. He stayed in Europe for three years working primarily as an Army machinist, going from England, to the Battle of Normandy in France, to Belgium, finally returning to the U.S.
