Robert J Marks II

Ray Hersman (right) was a POW in Nazi Germany during WWII. He was captured by the Nazi's on December 15, 1944 during the Battle of the Buldge. By incredible coincidence of fortune, his brother, Ed Hersman (left), was in the Allied forces who liberated Ray's POW group. This picture was taken on April 13, 1945, a day after liberation. Notes taken on the back of the photo are shown on the right. A second digitally enhanced picture and an untouched scan of the original photo are shown below.
