Hibby Margol and his twin brother, Howard, were freshman at the University of Florida and enrolled in the ROTC when they were called to active duty in 1943. Despite military policy prohibiting brothers from serving in the same combat unit, they were allowed to serve together in the 42nd Infantry Division. In January 1945, Hibby and Howard landed at Marseille, France. On April 29, 1945, their unit liberated the Dachau concentration camp. The experience stayed with them for the rest of their lives.
