“The things that you’ll have to take care of in the Army are things that you will never see any place else.” (Video Interview, 6:52)

War: World War, 1939-1945
Branch: Army
Unit: 97th Evacuation Hospital, 1st Army

At 41, Hubert Amstutz was older than your average enlistee in 1942, but as a practicing physician he had a lot to offer the U.S. Army. He trained at the University of Pennsylvania in surgery on “everything from the neck up.” Amstutz became an important member of the medical team that worked in the days after the Normandy invasion to treat soldiers with wounds in the most vulnerable areas of the anatomy. Interviewed at the age of 101, Amstutz displayed a remarkable memory for the details of those perilous times.

We honor you, Hubert Amstutz.
