For the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program's Spring 2011 Intern Class. World War II veteran George Sternfels briefly describes being drafted, his participation in the D-Day invasion, and the subsequent injuries he suffered therein. He speaks at greatest length about his reassignment to the Parisian suburb of Saint Cloud, where he ran an apartment hotel for field officers on rest and recuperation leaves, before moving on to descriptions of his reassignment to Frankfurt, a trip to Stuttgart for contact lenses he would never get, his dating and married lives back in America, and his time teaching wine classes at Santa Fe College.
