“PFC Richard S. Beyer 44321847, Sir.”

PFC Richard S. Beyer

As told by Cliff Carpenter, October 5, 2012.

This is an oral history about Rich Beyer as a combat soldier in World War II, as told by fellow soldier and life-long friend, Cliff Carpenter. Cliff was once a New York radio actor whose most famous role was Terry in “Terry and the Pirates.” He is a great storyteller, and although now age 98, he still has vivid memories of PFC “Slim.” This is a true story.

The setting is somewhere in Germany in 1944:

Hi Dorothy and Charles,

First I wanted you to know how sorry I am for your loss.  He was such a very talented and gifted sculptor and I am sorry that I didn’t get the opportunity to meet him.
