Technical Sergeant Spurgeon was drafted into the Army (Infantry) in 1944 and served until 1946 in the 160th Armored Infantry Battalion; 3rd Armored Division, Headquarters Company. Interviewed by Steve Germes on Jul 19, 2007, Spurgeon talked about military experiences in the Second World War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Greater Barber County Historical Action Assn and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
