Nichols, Harden Terry “Buddy”



DC Button Flag

"Buddy" Nichols took his own life by shooting himself while at home on leave from the U.S. Army.
He was visiting home on a week-end pass from Fort Atterbury, Indiana and was scheduled to leave the
following week for North Carolina and then ship out for Korea. According to his sister, Bessie Lou, he
was depressed about going to war. He had said several times that he didn't want to kill those people
because they had never done anything to him. She said that there was a sign posted as you entered Fort
Atterbury which said, "You are here to kill or be killed," and that always bothered him. He had also
been depressed over his short marriage that had ended abruptly in divorce.
Military service: U.S. Army, Headquarters Company, 28th Inf. Div., Rank of PFC
