Biography[edit | edit source]
Koppel was assigned to Fox Company, 2nd Battalion of the 506th around the time of the German breakout in the Ardennes Forest. He, along with the rest of the 506th, were quickly deployed to the region around Bastogne, taking a defensive position northwest of the town on the approach from Foy and Noville. A member of Sergeant Jones' squad during an assault on the crossroads south of Foy, Koppel's team was given the task of flanking a farmhouse just northwest of the American line. After capturing the house, the squad captured a German officer, Koppel conducted an interrogation of the German. He and the squad then secured a barn and protected the wounded soldiers from an assault triggered by the captive officer.
Later that day, Koppel and Denny lead a squad during the Assault on Foy, attacking the town with the rest of 2nd Battalion. Koppel, as well as the rest of his squadmates were killed after taking fire from a Wehrmacht FlaK 88 assault gun crew.
