William ‘Bill’ E. Loy Jr was a lifelong resident of Elon, North Carolina and a decorated World War II veteran.

In 1998, Bill was interviewed for a high school project in which he recounted his time serving – most notably in The Battle of Hürtgen Forest, one of the bloodiest periods of the war.

The interview was recently rediscovered and is presented here in edited form – alongside archive footage, public domain music and graphics – to preserve his memories for future generations, and to acknowledge the sacrifices made by so many.
