World War II vet, 93, visits Russia to thank soldiers who saved him

The Week ^Posted on 9/29/2014, 5:49:58 AM by wetphoenixLeroy Williamson, 93, has seen relations between the United States and Russia during good times and bad, and has some advice for the countries: “We have to get along,” he told ABC News.

“We don’t need a patriotic war or a World War III.”The Texan was in Russia this week to share his appreciation for the Soviet soldiers who liberated his Nazi prisoner-of-war camp on May 1, 1945. He met with a Russian general for lunch, visited with veterans, and placed a wreath at Moscow’s memorial to the Great Patriotic War, as World War II is known in the country.

He had planned on meeting with a surviving member of the infantry division that liberated his camp, but the man fell ill; instead, Williamson presented a Purple Heart to a soldier who fought alongside U.S. troops during the war. “It’s been wonderful,” Williamson said. “I am so pleased with the attitude of the people here.”
