William L. Chandler Sr, A co 338th Inf 85th Div
My Grandfather survived the War and lived until a little over 2 years ago. He never mentioned much about his service. I have two young daughters that I would like to pass on to, A history of his life. This is what I have been able to find out so far.He trained in Louisiana, California,and north Africa before he shipped to Naples Italy in March 1944 with A co 338th Inf. Saw his first combat at the Gustava Line, pushe dnorth and was one of the first units to enter Rome and ended up in the Po Valley at the end of the war. He left the army as a Sgt E-5 with 2 Purple hearts and a Bronze star with V. I know alot more happened within that time frame and am hoping to get more information. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
