My father was Ferdinand V. Steinmetz. He was in the army's 82nd aireborne in WWII. If any one out there was in his unit, please feel free to email me.Ferdinand's father was from Austria, I believe, and came to Kansas City, Kansas. Ferdinand married Margaret Lou Bowlin in 1945 -- they have 5 childrenEdward, William, Anita, Stephen, and Gregory. Margaret's mother, Clara, was an Eisle who married Leroy W. Bowlin. Any one having pictures of 82nd or history of family names .. thanks in advance. Frank Anthony Steinmetz was my Ferdinand's Father.
