Otis Edward Logan

My grandfather was Otis "Edward" Logan, Pfc. He was a part of B/393. I am doing research on him because he did not speak of the experiences he endured while he was living. I'm sure it was a living nightmare for him.

All that I know is that he was captured on the first day. He was the only man alive in his foxhole. He survived the war. He came home with broken teeth from the black bread. He had told my mother that German civilians rolled apples down trenches to the prisoners. They did not want the war any more than we did.

Please if you could help me in any way I would appreciate it. I know his experiences tore him up. He would cry out in his sleep, but would not talk about it.

I am doing this research for my family and my children. Someday I want to be able to share this information with them when they are old enough to understand.
