WW2 - Where was Basic Training if from Michigan?
How can I find out where my father was in WW2.Although his brothers were in the Navy, he was in the Army. Drafted?From 1938 to 1945 he worked on the great lakes steamships as a cook or porter, so the Navy would seem logical, but I have been told he was in the Army. Where would he have his initial training if he lived in Marine City, Michigan?
My father was born in 1917 and died in 1969.He was in the Army and either was in or was going to go to the Phillipines.We was discharged because of his asthma. But it saved him as his whole platoon (or group) died in the Philippines.
How can I find records to find out about his story?
