During World War II, he served in Normandy, Northern France, and Rhineland. He was wounded on November 16, 1944. During a small arms engagement with the Germans, he left the tank which he was assigned as the driver to assist the infantry in combat. He was immediately behind the tank he was assigned to when his company met stiff resistance. The new tank driver panicked and placed the tank in reverse, running completely over Harvey. Luckily, recent heavy rains made the ground muddy enough in which Harvey literally was sunk into the ground. The only injuries he suffered were the lost of portions of both legs.
