re: Dad enlisted in the Army
Thanks Richard for your info on the 508th gun battalion. I was wondering how that unit could have been been in Leyte and Luzon at almost the same time (Oct.17, 1944-July 1, 1945 and Dec.15, 1944-July 4th, 1945). Oh how I wish I'd asked dad about his time in the service! I think we would have gotten along better if we had just talked. It's funny how my sister got along great with him but not with mom.
