Paul Priest, age 95, is the last survivor of The Battle of Remagen during the Allied invasion of Germany in 1945. Hear his experience and learn about the battle that inspired the movie, “The Bridge at Remagen."

This Zoom presentation features a live Q&A. You can submit questions ahead of time after registering. This is a free program, but there is limited registration space.


Paul E. Priest was born on Dec. 25, 1925 in Flint, Michigan. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1944, assigned to the 9th Armored Division. He separated from the Army in 1946 in the grade of Private.

Paul is the sole surviving member of his eight-man reconnaissance team that was charged with gathering intelligence on German positions. This team is known for its battle to take the
Remagen Bridge over the Rhine River, trapping German troops and helping Allied troops hasten the end of World War II.

Paul stays active as a school crossing guard and as Santa Claus for the Humane Society of the Black Hills.
