my father Elvin Ray Farris
I am searching for information on the unit my father served in. I don't have much information to go on but I have requested his military records recently.According to my brother who read what he could of my father's discharge paper...it states that my father was in the 100th Bomb Group in the US Army his occupation was airplane engine mechanic...my father was inducted on sept 4,1942 and went on active service on october 8,1942. On Dec 26,1945 he was discharged from the Army. In March of 1949 he enlisted in the Air Force Reserve in Mexia,Texas. Until I get his military records this is all the information I have to go on. I was wondering if anyone who knows more about the Army than I do could give me some information on this unit or point me in the right direction to obtain the information. My father passed away in April 1979 and I had some of his records but they perished in my house fire in 1981. God Bless America!
