Searching for info re: Grandfather's service
I thought this forum might be appropriate for this.
I am trying to track down my grandfather's military service history.
Unfortunately, he never really spoke of it except for very rare instances, and never to me, just to some of my older family members, so I really have no first hand knowledge to go on.
I did contact an office and was able to get a very few records, namely a re-enlistment document from 1946, and a few awards, t which they have sent me replacements, since he never kept his.
Other than this, I know very little. I have his serial number from the one record I have.
Stories from my family are very loose and disconnected as well.
I've heard that he completed airborne training.
I've heard that he spent some time in St Lo France during or after the invasion.
The re-enlistment information I have is from Camp Bastrop TX in 1946, that much I do know.
Does anyne have any info or direction for where I might search?
