So, here's the good news:I received Frederick Goempel's IDPF today that I requested in August.Here's the bad news:It pretty much says that he was missing, no one in his platoon knew him, so no one knew what happened to him.Anyway, it lists two sets of dental records.One is dated from 1941, and the second is dated Dec. 1944.The records are obviously not from the same person, since the earlier one has filled cavities that the later one does not have.(If fillings go away, someone please inform me, I have a few I'd rather be rid of.)So, what I want to know is, did all of you World War II veterans have your teeth checked before you left Boot Camp?
Also, there are some station listings:Camp Croft, SC:Sept. 14, 44 - Dec. 30, '44.George G Mead, Md.:Dec '44 - Jan. 15 '45.Is George G Mead another camp?So, if we consider that he was there until Jan.15, '45, and he went to Glassgow down through Southampton to Le Havre then by train to Luxembourg, and we also consider that he went MIA on Feb.9, 1945, how many days do you suppose he actually saw action?
Thanks, again.All help is very much appreciated!!
