I did find the begining of his training in theHistory of the North Dakota National Guard Unit....my dad lived in Arkansas but he was assignedNorth Dakota...I contuine to look for the different leaders my dad served under...I am still searching forareas of where and when he was during that aweful war he talked about only shortly before he died. I took lots of notes as he talked on 7 Dec 2001 and he passed away at age 83 in Jan 2002. I almost missed my story.
