Deciphering my great uncle's WWII discharge papers
I understand the basics like CPL is corporal and I have googled the 297 Engr C Bn and get the 9th and 83rd but Co C not Co A for attachments.
Also, my dad says he was a medic and I see no sign on his papers to confirm this unless 'MD' is relevant.
Here's what I have:
Organization: Co A 297 Engr C Bn.
Military occupational specialty:Section Leader.
Arm or Service: MD,
Military Qualification: Driver and Mechanic Badge.
Battles and Campaigns: Rhineland; Central Europe
Decorations and Citations: American Theatre Ribbon; EAME Ribbon w/2 Bronze Stars; Good Conduct Medal.
ETO I assume meant European Theatre, he arrived 20 Oct 44 and came back stateside 24 Oct 45.
Highest grade held: CPL (Corporal)
Reason and Authority for Separation: AR 615-365 Convn of Govt. Sec V Cir 269 WD 45
0Days Lost AW 107
ASR (2 Sept 45) 54
Inactive ERC 27 Nov 42 to 4 Dec 42
Lapel Button Issued.
He had 4 years of college but was only a coporal?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
