Ep 209: Tom Lacey

Al and James interview Battle of the Bulge veteran Tom Lacey as part of We Have Ways’ Thanksgiving Specials.

Tom Lacey was fascinated with aeronautics as a young boy, so naturally, he wanted to be trained to become a pilot. Instead, he was assigned to the Army Infantry and volunteered to take a radioman post. Barraged by German artillery, with radio connection completely lost, Lacey later realised he survived the beginnings of the Battle of the Bulge. Of the 200 men in his unit, he was one of 12 to survive from the time of their entry into combat.
