I posted a query here last week, looking for WWII stories to share with my Social Studies class, and mentioned that a couple of my relatives died during WWII.The response to this was amazing!I so far have three stories, and people offering to help me find out what happened to my relatives, which made me try and dig for information as well.
I finally FINALLY got the information on my great-uncle, James Leonard Davidson.This is what his gravestone reads:
James L. Davidson NM 2nd Lt. 193 GLI Infantry 17th Airborne Division WWII October 13, 1921 January 7, 1945
Is there anyone who knows about the 17th Airborne Division who might be able to point me in the right direction?I would greatly appreciate the help.
And thank you very much to all who have offered me their stories so far.I cannot begin to express how much it means to me.
