I'm going to repost this information as afraid I lost it by posting under another topic of my own the other day after I obtained info on him.
Here is the information I now have if someone has help, suggestions, etc.; all appreciated! Delbert E. Hallmark was in the 36th Division of the 144th Infantry. Someone has now told me the 144th split off from the 36th so don't know where that put him then.
He enlisted Aug. 1, 1940, in the National Guard and reported for active duty at Camp Bowie TX in November of the same year with the 36th Division, 144th Infantry. He was stationed at Santa Rosa, CA; was on the west coast and then the east coast (VA?) where he went overseas. Either landed in Italy or was there soon. He left in May 1944 and arrived in Normandy on D-Day plus 10. He was also in Paris. He was also in the battles of central Germany and was six miles from the Austrian border when the Germans surrendered. He arrived back in the U.S. July 29th by plane from France through Africa and South America. He was discharged 8/5 1945. His twin brother Elbert B. Hallmark was with him the whole time they were in the service I think.
Trying to obtain any information on his military service, the campaigns in which he served, etc. Thank you, Sandra
