C. Fronzek - My husband did have a three month period of "no dy asgmt" from Jan 1, 1945 to Mar 27, 1945. I have been in contact with his driver and the Bn Adjutant. They do not remember they say and are not telling any thing of this period.
TB was prevalent among the soldiers in Europe according to reports I have read. I also have a few records of ailments treated in two large hospitals in August-October 1945 where there is mention of a # of different illnesses but none of TB. Streptomycin was available for the use of the military some time in 1943 or at least 1944. It was not released to the general public until sometime in 1947. That date could be a bit off. (One reason I know a bit about the disease is because I have had it three times and been treated with strepomycin and izoniazid. The first time I had only bed rest.)
My thought is that since TB is highly contagious that the military probably had special places for those men. And also because at that time many people were afraid to marry such a person or rent a room to such people and other avoidence tactics so that perhaps that might have been an area that was not reported.
My husband did have TB. But since he never discussed his war time injuries he would not have told me of it. He talked of the train wreck injuries that happened in Germany after the war in Germany was over but not of the shell fragment or sniper injuries that occurred in battle.
Thank you very much for your thoughts and maybe now some one else will chime in. Mary
