Need help Indiana U.S. ARMY
My grandfather passed in 1976 and his records are gone at NARA and his SOC SEC application cannot help.
HOWARD DAVID WILLIAMSON born AUG 1910 died JUNE 1976
Served in the U.S ARMY during WW2
HE enlisted JUNE 1942 at FT BENJAMIN HARRISON in Indianapolis INDIANA,and was discharged SEPT 1945
HE lived his life in EVANSVILLE,INDIANA.
WE cannot find any info on his unit/company.
HE went to ITALY and we were told he built bridges/railroads during this time.
HE was wounded and lost partial use of his leg, and was sent home shortly befor SEPT 1945.
His papers are now missing due to the fire in 1973
We know or believe he was a TECH 5 or SPEC 5 at time of discharge although the paper we recieved from NARA says PRIVATE at enlistment and discharge and that is all they could tell us.
ANYONE who served from EVANSVILLE INDIANA in the U.S ARMY and enlisted abt this time who can remember HOWARD DAVID WILLIAMSON or served with him and could assist us would be appreciated.
