Battle stars for Normandy, Northern France, the Ardennes, the Rhineland, and Central Europe.A Bronze Star. He was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge and evacuated to Paris for a short hospital stay, then rejoined his unit.

Keywords: My father is Cledus J. Kilburn. He is from Tenn.
He is looking for friends he talks about from 1942 to 1945. He was a lineman and truck driver for the arm. He and Dave Parker ran a line across the (I may spell this wrong)Mozelle River. He talks about the bombs going off and the forward company not being able to get through. His commander (Sargent Steve) he can't remember his last name, said they had to get a communication line across so they could talk to A Company. Anyway Dad is 80 now and talks about the following men remembers them with a fond smile and a tear or two for the ones lost.
Howard Kosterman, or Costerman, Albert Wilks from Pa.,J C Takleberry Ms., Razz Loftman Ms., James Duncan Ms., Bill Shinpaw KN.Tenn,Sgt. Glover, David Bean, and Dwight Jones.He talks about Rinklewitz, but can't remember his first name. I've heard his war stories since I was a little girl and I've loved each one. It made me realize the sacrifices men and women made on my behalf. I have the freedoms today I have because of men like my dad and friends, and women who served our country when they were called. Thank you each and every one. And to the men and women who served in Viet Nam, I say to you "Welcome HOme" You should have had the heros welcome you deserved long long ago! My brother served in that war Don Kilburn, he was called Mouse, My dad's nickname in the War was
you guessed it"mouse" so history does repeat itself.Thank you and I hope to hear from someone in dad's unit or knew of him. He would love to hear from his pals. Altho he said some of them were older than him, he was 19 and some of the guys were already in their late 20's.I can be reached
Thank you
