It was a warm, breezy day in mid-1942 that I decided to enlist in the Army. Germany had invaded Poland in 1939 and things were going great! Our economy was on the rise and my family was doing much better for itself. Two weeks prior to my enlistment, my friend, Karl Braun, that we should join together and maybe we’d be placed in the same unit, and with a little luck, the same squad.
I apologize, it seems that I have forgotten to introduce myself! I’m Otto Müller! It was my grandfather’s name and my parents found me fitting of the name when they first saw me.
Now, I’ll continue to explain my experience in training.
We got there and were yelled at almost immediately. Our element control sergeant, Hans Schmidt, wasted no time in getting us to the Uniform storage and fitter to get us our uniforms as soon as possible. During this process, Karl and I had met Wilhelm Fischer. He came from a family that had more money than most and it showed a little in his attitude.
Within a few weeks of our training, we were assigned a weapon and our gear. We were also issued our helmets (which our leaders insisted we called ‘Stahlhelm’ instead of just ‘helm’). Just to my luck, Karl and I were assigned to the same squad! However, Wilhelm and Karl were assigned to be a machine gun team and were given the brand new and terrifying MG42. I was made a rifleman and was given a simple Kar98k.
The days in training went by so slow. However, the weeks seemed to pass quickly, so it seems I came out ahead. Before we knew it, we had graduated and were getting ready to leave our homes and fight. Only god knows the challenges that lay ahead of us...

Needed to clear my head for a day or two before moving on to the next phase of the build... This is how I clear my head. #legodoctorwho #legowip #legomoc #legostagram #legotardis
