Was it an Honerable Discharge?
Hello, I finally have enough info of my own, in order to make some sense in asking for help. So here it goes.
My father's brother, served in World Was 2, this is for sure, on his tomb stone, there is inscription about him being in the militery police.
The dates on the stone are 9-30-1913 till 8-21-1943. This is all the cemetery has, Funeral home was of no help. There was no obit found for this date of death.
Now the militery, has sent me statement of service,dates were from 4-30-1938 till 7-24-1940, with an honerable discharge.
Now heres the problem he is listed for the World War2 Memorial at Washington DC, and also at a memorial that is planned for Salisbury Md.
One of the family stories is that he died saving someone from drowning.
Any help anyone can give fiqureing this out would be great.
The only thing I can think of is that, the date on the stone is wrong.During World War 2 if somesone died while servind, were they given honerable discharge or was there another was of wording it. The other thing is that there is no death certificate on file for him in Salisbury, for 8-21-1943. Where would this be, if for instance he did die over seas, where would this be.
