I first met Jim Meyers after posting a notice in our local newspaper that I was looking for veterans to be interviewed by homeschoolers for a history project we were doing. Jim’s wife urged him to call. And I’m so glad she did.
Jim Meyers was a member of the 88th Infantry Division, The Blue Devils—the first all-draftee division to enter combat in WWII. It was also first infantry division to enter Rome on June 4, 1944—Meyer’s 22nd birthday.
