Le(a)dbetter from Alabama--WWII vet
I am conducting a search on behalf of an 84-year-old friend who is a WWII vet and a former POW. My friend's last name is Junek, and he is a lifelong resident of Snook, Texas. He is hoping to find a man who served with him in the 2nd Infantry Division in 1944 (9th Regiment, 2nd Battalion, Company E). The man's name was Ledbetter (or Leadbetter). Mr. Junek does not remember Mr. Ledbetter's first name; in fact, he says that he does not remember ever knowing the first name because they called one another by last names only. Mr. Ledbetter was from Alabama, and he was wounded twice in France; he was not a POW with Mr. Junek. My friend believes it is possible that Ledbetter might have become a preacher after the war. If any of this information rings a bell, please respond and make a very sweet gentleman happy. Thank you.
