Italian POW with Girls

Italian POW with girls

One time I was in the warehouse and I had about 25 prisoners in three bays at the warehouse. They were working and all I was doing was wandering from bay to bay. The Lieutenant who was in charge of DDO, he said “One of the prisoners is missing.” I said “Oh, he’s probably just in the restroom.” But he didn’t believe me, and so he said, “I’m calling your commanding officer.” The Italian Sargent knew quite a bit of English, so I asked “Where is the prisoner?” He says, “He’s in the next warehouse talking with his girlfriend.” Actually I’ve always said we weren’t there to keep them from escaping, we were there to keep the American girls away from them.
