SOCRS091- Roy Duncan- “Do Your Job, Come Home, and Get Busy to Work”

August 22, 2019

U.S. Army Veteran and Bronze Star recipient Mr. Roy H. Duncan is THE FIRST WORLD WAR TWO VETERAN to join us on the show. 

Roy is the son of a sharecropper and was born in Western Kentucky. During the war, he was a Radio Operator assigned to HQ Company, 21st Armored Inf Bn, 11th Armored Division in General Patton’s Third Army.

This native Kentuckian answered his Nation’s call to duty and his story is amazing, one worth hearing. The tail-end of his military service took him through the last six months of the war that had the 11th Armor Division pushing through the sun-covered countryside from France to Linz where they liberated the Mauthausen Concentration Camp on the day the war ended.

Roy Duncan was not awarded just one Bronze Star Medals, he’s got three.
