Footnote: Friedrich Seitz was born on 17 April 1920 in Böhm-Neuhäusel. He served in the Division-Verpflegungsamt 99, attached to Light Infantry Division 99. This Division was stationed in Bad Kissingen until June 1941 when it transferred to Poland to participate in Operation Barbarossa under Army Group South. In October, Seitz was promoted to Gefreiter (Lance Corporal), the same month LID 99 returned to Germany to receive new replacements and was reclassified as 7 Gebirgs Division (7th Mountain Division). They returned to the Eastern Front, fighting in Lapland from February 1942 until the end of 1944. Seitz was promoted to Obergefreiter (Corporal) in 1 October 1942. The Russian offensive in January 1944 forced a gradual withdrawal in defensive battles and Finnish Lapland suffered heavy casualties. The division fought in Kiestinki, Ranna, Rovaniemi, Vilmaa, and Kemi. German forces in Finland withdrew to the border with Norway after Finland and Russia signed the Moscow Armistice in September 1944. In January 1945, the 7th Mountain Division moved to Narvik and remained as an occupying force until the end of the war, surrendering in May 1945 to the British. Seitz received three awards, including a Wehrmacht’s Driver Badge in both Bronze and Silver, in addition to a Lapland Shield. Seitz was discharged on 20 November 1945.
