This photograph depicts Gen. George Patton, one of history’s greatest conquerors, as he purposefully urinates into the Rhine River.

91-year-old Missoula Native and WWII veteran Sgt. John Nelson helped build that pontoon bridge and recalled the event during a very special interview on the Talk Back show on June 5.

Here’s what Mr. Nelson had to say off the air…

Nelson will be telling more stories of D-Day and the events that followed during a very special event at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 7. The event will take place in the Rocky Mountain Museum of Military History in honor of the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
