Bio:

Fred P. (Paul) Dallas was an Army Veteran of WWII who now lives with his wife Doris in Fayetteville N.C. Fred was a Cpl. with the 45th Inf. Division when he was captured at Mulhouse, France on November 28, 1944. He was 20 years old and weighed 165 pounds when the Germans ran over his infantry company in an open field in Southern France.  He was sent to a forced labor camp and was a resident in Stalag 7-A, 4-B.  When liberated by the Russians May 5th 1945 (after only 6 months) Paul weighed only 95 pounds.  Fred P.

After the war Paul was employed with the City of Fayetteville, NC with the Public Works Commission for over 30 years. "I worked in management and with people problems. And I hope that I made a difference."
