NT Fighter Tells How He Was Hurt
A U.S. Army Station Hospital, England - Private First Class Harvey Strassburg of North Tonawanda, New York, radio operator of a Sherman tank who was wounded in the shoulder by grenade shrapnel near Granville, France, is now recovering at this United States Army station hospital in England. "During the thick of the battle my tank was hit by enemy shell fire," said Pfc. Strassburg, "and thinking it had caught on fire and was about ready to explode, I jumped out and started to run for cover. I was no further than a few yards from my tank when a German grenade exploded nearby. Pieces of shrapnel hit my chest, but I kept on going until I reached a place of cover," continued Pfc. Strassburg. “A medic gave me first aid right on the field and then sent me to the rear. Later I was evacuated to England by air," he said. Before entering the Army, Pfc. Strassburg worked for the Buffalo Bolt Company. He is the brother of Mrs. Donald Townsend, formerly of North Tonawanda.

A half-sibling (half-brother or half-sister) is a sibling with one shared parent. Half-siblings can have a wide variety of interpersonal relationships, from a bond as close as any full siblings, to total strangers. While many half-siblings are step-siblings and vice versa, someone may have either relationship without the other: step-siblings each have a parent married to a parent of the other but not necessarily a parent in common, and half-siblings not living in the same household are not always considered step-siblings.
