This website is dedicated to the memory of all of the soldiers who served with the 103rd Infantry Division during World War II, and particularly to those 821 courageous men who gave their lives while enduring horrible conditions in the European Theater of Operations and engaged in combat with the enemy.

I especially honor the memory of my father who, with Major Ernest F. Brockway (of Indianapolis, IN) and 2Lt Robert C. Nordhausen (of Mt Vernon, NY), was wounded in action on 23 Nov 1944 at St Die, France.

...On Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 1944, at 0835 hours, the 410th Infantry Regiment established a new Command Post at Marzelay. At 1039 hours, the 1st Battalion “jumped off” and at 1200 hours took Dijon after overcoming heavy enemy opposition. Shortly after 1600 hours, LePair et Grandrupt and Nevillers were both occupied by the 1st Battalion. Aubert was in the vicinity of St. Die, and with Major Ernest F. Brockman and 2Lt Robert C. Nordhausen, was searching the area for Germans. They were entering a French house when a delayed action time bomb, rigged to the door, detonated. Aubert caught some shrapnel in the front of his neck. Major Brockman’s right little finger was blown off and Lieutenant Nordhausen took shrapnel in the left leg. Aubert was sent to a field hospital in France and arrived there at 2000 hours. He then contracted salmon ptomaine poisoning and remained in the hospital a total of nine days. On the ninth day, December 1, 1944, his first child was born in Detroit, Michigan, and his wife, Shirley, named their son Lawrence Wayne Seguin. Shirley learned that day of Aubert being wounded when her sister brought the Army telegram to Detroit Receiving Hospital. The names of Brockman, Nordhausen, and Seguin appeared on the Division Casualty Report for the month of November 1944. Aubert and 2Lt Nordhausen were awarded the Purple Heart for their wounds per General Order #17, HQ 95th Evacuation Hospital, dated 21 December 1944.
