SSgt. Lelton H. Pittman, (Squad Leader) Company B, 1st Infantry Regiment. Stories of Service | 2 comments THE GREATEST GENERATION One of Cullman County_s Own_ 2 Comments Sandy Delvecchio on April 23, 2019 at 8:25 pm My uncle was in Company B, 1st Infantry. He died in Sansapor of scrub typhus. If you have any stories about this, I would like to hear them. Thank You! Reply Adam Jennings on February 13, 2020 at 12:03 pm Unfortunately I do not. My grandfather didn’t join up with the 6th until after the New Guinea campaign. He was an anti-aircraft gunner and got folded into the infantry as a replacement after New Guinea. He got his combat experience beginning with the Luzon landing through the occupation of Korea. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
