Happy Sgt York Day

It was 100 years ago today that Corporal Alvin York captured "the whole damn German Army!" Also, it was on this day that the Lost Battalion were relieved after six days cut from American lines.

Happy Sgt York Day !!!

I loved the movie and have probably watched it about a dozen times over the years.

FWI

Ms Gracie in real life looked closer to the actress playing his mother in the movie.
