AbstractJoseph C. Doherty, interviewed by Shane Benz, Rachel Brown, and Michael Buckley on November 25, 2013, left St. Mary’s College in Minnesota to join the Army Reserves in 1942, at the age of 18. Doherty was in the Army Reserves for less than three months before being called into active service. Following basic training, he was placed in the Army Specialized Training Program (ASTP), a program which removed 200,000 of the best soldiers in terms of intelligence, health, and youth and put them into college for engineering. Doherty was in the ASTP for nine months before the program was disbanded due to the need for additional infantry troops. He was placed in the 99th Infantry Division where he served in a mortar platoon for the majority of the war. Doherty recounts his experience at the Battle of the Bulge, successfully crossing the Rhine, and defeating German troops in the Ruhr. Doherty goes on to describe being in Europe after the armistice and his journey home to Philadelphia on Liberty Ships.
