Youth Interrupted

Authored by Karl Lindquist

Drafted by the Army at age 18 from a New England prep school before he graduates, Pfc. Karl Lindquist serves in the infantry as first scout and later as a Medic. At 19 he is the youngest, most decorated G.I. in the 2nd Battalion-104th Infantry Regiment, with a Bronze and Silver star. The war in Europe ends on May 7, 1945 in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia. Pfc. Lindquist is there and it is his 20th birthday. He is one of five remaining members of the original 180 who landed together in France.

For Karl Lindquist growing up on Nantucket was heaven - going to war was hell - teaching college physics at a New England state college was a rewarding reality. Lindquist and his wife Carol divide their time between Key West, Florida and the Loire Valley of France where they have renovated an ancient winemakers barn.
