PFC James Lonzo Paradise

US Army 422nd Infantry Regiment

from:Scottsboro, Alabama

Our father James L. Paradise was a POW in WWII. He was a member of the 422nd Infantry Regiment. James Paradise PFC, Serial Number 34001914

He didn't talk much about his experiences as a POW but I won't ever forget the tales he did tell. He told us a story once of his camp having potatoe peelings to eat and somtimes only bread and many times nothing. He told us about eating donkey as well. He said none of the men wanted the "end" peice of the bread, so he always took it saying to us he thought it was more bread than a regular slice because it was thicker in the middle. He was roped in the box cars jammed in like cattle,and forced marched barefooted in the snow for 2 or 3 days. James Paradise was a POW in camp Stalag 9B Bad Orb Hessen-Nassau, Prussia 50-09. He was held in this camp until his release when the war ended.
