SMITH, November 16, 1942 in San Luis Obispo, California.

Notes: Bertha's children adopted the name Hockett as their own.

Berger Fieldsa also went by the name of Wilbur Theodore Fields, and was also known by the names of Billy, William, and "Handy". He was a private first class in "E" company of the 325 Glider Infantry Division, 82nd Airborne U.S. Army in Belgium in World War II. He was riding in a vehicle and was struck by a gun on a tank which was passing the vehicle he was in and he was killed, along with 3 others. He is buried in Belgium.

The Glider Infantry was quite a dangerous outfit to be in. They were supposed to be in on the Normandy Invasion on D-Day but were detained and didn't make the initial assault. They did fight in the Battle of the Bulge, which was just concluded prior to Berger's death on February 5, 1945.

At Normandy, gliders were towed to overhead and then cut loose at about 400 feet and the pilots had to find a spot to land in small fields with "hedgerows" and "Rommel Asparagus," which were steel pipes and pilings set upright to discourage such landings. The military leaders estimated that there would be 70% casualties in the landings but they sent them anyway because they thought that the risk was justified. They only lost 11% on the landings, but by the end of the 30 day battle the 325th had lost one third of their unit.

For interesting reading on glider warfare read "Silent Wings" by Gerard M. Devlin, "Glidermen of Neptune" by Charles J. Masters, or "The Glider War" by James E. Mrazek.
