Pfc. Domingo Urioste Sr. stood 5 feet, 5½ inches tall, weighed 152 pounds and fought the Nazis in some of World War II's bloodiest battles.

He was part of the wave of U.S. soldiers who landed at Utah Beach in the invasion of Normandy. Army records show that Urioste, a rifle sharpshooter and heavy machine gunner, also saw combat in Rhineland, Central Europe and Ardennes, better known as the Battle of the Bulge.

Somewhere along that trail of pain and death, Urioste pulled a large canister from a stream. His children aren't sure where this happened. Urioste was always tight-lipped about the war.

Inside the cylinder was Nazi Germany's red-and-white flag, emblazoned with a swastika. Urioste brought it home to New Mexico after his honorable discharge Oct. 30, 1945.
