Merriken was one of 150 men in the 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion.
He says he's not sure why his unit was ordered into the small Belgium town.
But before they could reach their destination a German Armor Unit ambushed the U. S. troops.
Merriken says the soldiers were lined up in a field for execution.
Only 15 survived the massacre at Malmedy. ((MERRIKEN: I LAID THERE, DIDN'T MOVE. I DIDN'T LET OUT ANY SCREAMS OR MOAN OR ANYTHING. MY ARM WAS OVER MY MOUTH CAUSE WHEN YOU'RE IN THE COLD WEATHER THERE'S VAPOR. I GUESS THEY SAW THE TWO ROUNDS IN MY BACK AND THEY THOUGHT I WAS DEAD ANYWAY.))
He listened for hours as a 15 mile long German convoy passed by on that December day in 19-44.
Then Merriken crawled to safety.
These are aerial photographs of the town near Malmedy taken shortly after the war.
He and another soldier were taken in by a local woman.
She helped reunite the men with U.S troops.
Merriken says the time he spent in a military hospital was the beginning of a very long and difficult recovery. ((MY BEST BUDDIES, WHETHER THEY WERE STILL ALIVE OR NOT. AND YOU JUST WENT THROUGH THE WHOLE THING OVER AND OVER, OVER AND OVER, OVER AND OVER, OVER AND OVER.))
