At age eighteen, Tom Dennis left his recent bride in Durham in 1943 and took a bus to join the US Army in World War II. He was assigned to the 34th Infantry Division which spent 517 days in combat in North Africa and Italy. Davis later said he felt he led a charmed life being in a number of life-threatening moments but escaping without a scratch. Harrell's article is a mixture of his additions together with Dennis's narrative. Among the awards Dennis received were the Silver and Bronze Stars, the Combat infantryman Badge, and the Distinguished Service Award.
