Torrance Historical Society - 1345 Post Ave., Torrance, CA 90501
Now, both 96 years young, Mel & Muriel Engelman, have quite a story to tell having both served in WWII. Mel served as a Marine in the Pacific Theatre, while Muriel served as an Army nurse behind the front lines at the Battle of the Bulge. A 1st Lieutenant, ANC, Muriel was a staff member of the 16th General Hospital, Liège, Belgium, 1944 to 1945, and was awarded the European Theatre Medal with three Battle Stars and the Belgian Fourragère. The 16th General Hospital was under experiment by the U.S. War Department to place a general hospital with a triage system in tents as close to the fighting lines as possible. The hospital was ravaged by buzz bombs, each carrying 2000 pounds of explosives, which fell every 12-15 minutes, 24 hours a day, for 2 1/2 months, destroying hospital tents and inflicting heavy casualties. On Christmas Eve, Germans strafed and bombed the hospital, killing and wounding scores of patients and staff. The enemy had surrounded Bastogne. As they approached Liège, nurses were told to be ready to move out within minutes and expect capture by the Germans. Muriel wore dog tags with an H for Hebrew. Muriel will share her experiences, maps and diagrams during this presentation. Her book, Mission Accomplished: Stop The Clock, will be available for purchase ($20 - cash or check) and signing after the event.
