William Calhoun was raised in De Leon, Texas in Comanche County but has spent most of his adult life in Comanche where he worked as a dentist for many years. He is a World War II veteran and a recipient of the Purple Heart. He was a member of the famous 503rd Parachute Infantry Regiment.
Dr. Calhoun, who wasn’t a doctor at the time, became something of a “boy” commander, leading his men into what has become one of the most famous jumps of WWII. We have broken his story into short segments to make viewing easier. We here at United think you will enjoy this interview.
If you are a vet or know a vet who would allow us to conduct an interview, Texans United would love to broadcast their military memories as well, whether they served in combat or not.
