Irvin Roy Holsclaw was born in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, where he grew up. With World War II becoming a real possibility, Irvin enlisted in the United States Army on May 2, 1939 at the age of 18. He was part of the 1st Armor Division from Fort Knox Kentucky. Irvin was a Light Tank Commander who was in charge of a light tank platoon of five tanks with four men in each tank. He was responsi­ble for the proper maintenance of the tank, its guns, and equipment as well as the conduct and safety of the crews. On May 11,1942, Irvin was shipped overseas to Europe. He arrived in Europe on May 20, 1942. While in Europe, Irvin suffered injuries in battle twice and received two Purple Hearts. Irvin's overseas tour during World War II was in Ireland, England, North Africa and Italy. While in Mer-seta, Italy, Irvin— then Staff Sergeant Holsclaw — was in an intense battle. The Germans detonated a massive ammunition dump which stunned the crews in the tanks. Thinking they had been hit, the crews began abandoning their tanks. Sergeant Holsclaw moved forward, finding a way through the blaze of fire, explosions and hostile fire, leading the tank crews out to safety. It was determined that without his leadership and valor, the Americans would have been trapped in an inescapable delay which would have materially aided the enemy and caused many deaths. As a result Sergeant Holsclaw was awarded one of three Bronze Stars he received while in the service.

His first citation was given by Four Star General Mark Clarke who was the commanding General for all of the Italian Region. While serving in North Africa and fighting the Germans, Irvin was in one of many battles in Cozmarine, North Africa. The Americans came under tremendous gun fire at a pass (valley) where the Germans had a very large advantage. While in battle, Irvin saw a soldier running towards his tank and being fired upon. Irvin maneuvered his tank were he could straddle the soldier. Once over the soldier, Irvin opened the escape hatch on the bottom of the tank and pulled the injured soldier into the tank to safety. Once in the tank they turned and got out of danger. The soldier had been running on two compound fractured feet, where his feet were turned out, and he was literally running on his ankles. His life was saved as a result of Irvin's actions and Sergeant Holsclaw received his second Bronze Star as a result. Irvin's overseas tour ended on October 21,1944, when he departed Europe. He arrived back in the United States on November 7, 1944.

Some of this information was received from the Defense Department records and personal conversations Irvin had with his brother Jim Holsclaw when he returned from Europe, There were several times I (Gary Metzger - Irvin's son-in-law), had tried to talk to him about his war experiences. Irvin continually said, "War is terrible". He said he saw so many men blown apart, missing limbs and killed that he did not like to talk about the subject. His brother Jim made the same statements and said this was a part of Irvin's life he would rather have forgotten. Too much pain, too much heartache, destruction everywhere and too much death. This is what Irvin and others witnessed in this bloody war.

After 91 years of life, Irvin passed away to be with our Lord and Father on Sunday, January 8, 2012. It was a pleasure to have known Staff Sergeant Irvin Holsclaw and to have married his daughter Diana Lynn Holsclaw. It was actions and bravery that he and others showed that allows America to have the freedoms we enjoy today. Thank you, Irvin, and to all the military personnel who have given their time and lives to allow this country to be The Home of The Free.
