Assigned to the 60th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 20th Armored Division, he arrived in Europe following the D-Day invasion, and fought his way across France and into Germany. Outside Munich, the 60th Armored Infantry Battalion of the 20th Armored Division found and liberated the concentration camp at Dachau. As an infantryman, Sheridan was among the first American soldiers to enter the camp.
