Need Suggestions with WWII vet

Hello !
I am interviewing my uncle about WWII. He was a Sargeant Major with the 1572 Quarter Master Battalion. He was in France for alot of his service and says he arrived on Omaha Beach five hours after the war started. His group was responsible for guarding and moving 1,000 -5
gallon cans of gas to the troops. He said that the area had to be kept black because one German bomb would have ended it for everyone.
Any suggestions on questions I should ask? He said his strangest
memory of D day was being on the beach and finding a milk crate in the middle of all of the confusion of war. He said he turned the crate over and sat down to write a letter to his parents to let them know he was still alive.
