Pfc. Jimmie W. Caplinger originally served as a rifleman in Company B, 134th Infantry Regiment. When the Company medic was killed in action during the Blies River crossing and battle for Habkirchen, Germany in December 1944, Pfc. Caplinger stepped into that role. He was awarded a Bronze Star Medal for heroic action during that battle. Although never offically trained as a medic, he had at one time been a hospital orderly and was officially transferred to the Medical Detachment in January 1945.

Thanks to Linda Ommart, the daughter of Pfc. Jimmie W. Caplinger, for this photograph and information about her father. She would like to hear from anyone who remembers serving with him. Please contact her at lindaommart@gmail.com
