Arsentiy Isaevich Ivanov

We are proud of you - heroes of the Great Patriotic War! Victory Day! Our entire country, millions of people from many countries, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. Many of those who defeated Nazi Germany and brought the world a costly Victory are no longer among us. But a person is alive as long as his memory is alive. One of the participants in the Great Patriotic War was our father Arsentiy Isaevich Ivanov. Our dear, beloved father passed away 32 years ago. He was buried by the whole large village, as a respected and honorary citizen. Today we, his children, consider it our duty to tell about him, who went through the entire war, from its first day and ending with its last salvo in Berlin, over the defeated Reichstag. This is a story not only about him, but also about his fellow soldiers, who during all four years of the brutal war fought side by side with him and endured all the hardships of the war. Father was born on 05/22/1911 in the village of Novo-Semenkino, Belebeevsky district of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The family had many children. The father was the oldest in the family. Before the war he managed to start a family, graduated from the courses of a veterinary paramedic and sniff gunpowder in the White Finnish war. And now June 1945. Having received the summons right in the field, hastily said goodbye to his wife and kissed his three children, the father (he was called up by mobilization, along the Belebeevsky RVK Bash. ASSR) walked to the recruiting station. At that time, the oldest in the family was only 6 years old, and the youngest was born shortly before the start of the war. Our father, Sergeant Arsentiy Isaevich Ivanov, fought in the 79th Rifle Corps of the Nerlinsky Corps (later Berlin), the 3rd Shock Army under the command of General S.N. Perevertkin from the first bottom of its formation. My father was a signalman. After completing the appropriate training, he became the commander of the liaison office. In a war, a lot depends on the work of signalmen. Providing communication is a responsible and hard work, you constantly had to be on the front line. His father received his first baptism of fire in battles near Moscow and was seriously wounded in the leg there, and in total during the war he was wounded five times: 1942, slightly wounded in the left leg, II.1943. severe wound in the left leg, 1943. light wound in the right forearm, 1944 lung in the right shoulder, 1944. minor injury and four injuries to the lower leg. While in this hell, he thought about us, children, about his brothers Andrei and Mikhail, sister Maria, who also fought at the front: - Ivanov Mikhail Isaevich-lieutenant, intelligence, 1914 g / b. - Ivanova / Kirillova / Olga Isaevna, a home front worker, she was injured during the construction of roads, lost her eye, 05/09/1919 / b. - 08.08.2007 - Ivanova / Afanasyeva / Maria Isaevna-sergeant m / s, medical instructor. 748 anti-aircraft artillery regiment, awarded a medal for the defense of Stalingrad and for the victory over Germany, 09/09/1923 - 06/22/1993 - Ivanov Andrey Isaevich, Red Army soldier, private, shooter. 365 reserve rifle regiment, 02/20/1925 - 28.07.1956 How did the soldier feel when he received news from home that his little son Anatoly died of whooping cough without receiving any medical assistance. At that time, there was no paramedic in the village, and 40 km to the regional center, no horses or cars could get there. They were needed at the front. Everything for the front, everything for the victory! Having gone through all the circles of the hell of war, my father was demobilized on the basis of the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of 25.IX.1945. and only at the end of autumn 1945 he returned home. Homeland highly appreciated the military merits of his father, awarding him: -Order of Glory III degree (№V.116153, 1944), for crossing the Vistula; -Order of the Patriotic War II degree (No. 288383, 1945), for services in the offensive on March 1 against the Pomeranian group of the enemy; -Medal for the liberation of Warsaw, 1945, from the Nazis; -Medal for the capture of Berlin, 1945; -Medal for the victory over Nazi Germany, May 1945 Germany.
