Great podcast and a great story! However, Caleb Milne was not a member of the US Army. He served with the British Army in North Africa as an ambulance driver and stretcher bearer for the American Field Service - which provided ambulances and ambulance drivers for the Allied armies in World War II and the British Army in World War II.
