Lieutenant Lehmkuhl takes part in the Assault on Foy with the rest of 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR on 13 January 1945, possibly working as a liaison between infantry and armor elements. The initial assault became pinned down, with FlaK 88 assault guns zeroing in on the M4 Shermans of the 11th Armored Division. Lehmkuhl hops a fence, linking up with Sergeant Moody's squad. He orders Moody to have his sniper eliminate a German spotter who is direct artillery fire onto the American assault. However, his order is cut short when a German sniper manages to score a direct impact to Lehmkuhl's head.
