Alphonse from the 309th Engineers even put his uniform on today to show his pride for the 84th Div and our country!
He just turned 96 1/2 and is doing well and has just healed from a recent fall.
Alphonse Yokimovich was his original name, But the men of the 309th abbreviated it to "Sergeant York" when they talked to him so often, Alphonse decided to have it legally changed to "York" after the war.
So Happy Veterans Day to all!
