I am seeking information on the 9817TH TECHICAL SERVICE UNIT CE ENGINEERS BOARD during World War II. I am interested in the history of this unit. The records were apparently lost in a fire in Kansas. I know the following men served in that unit. I don't know any thing about these individuals other than Dardyn Ware who was attending school at Texas A&M when he joined the Army. I would like to find others who served in this unit.
John F. Waisanen of Embarrass, Minn. was inducted into the Army on June 27, 1945.
