did anyone know frank stroder? us army 172nd 43rd div
I was wondering if anyone out there knew my grandpa or served with him or his unit in world war 2? I have a copy of his discharge papers. They say he was in AGF 172nd infantry regiment, 43 infantry division, company I, 3rd battalion. I hope I typed this correctly. I know he fought in new guinea and southern philippines. He was wounded in the philippines in january of 1945.
I would like to know if anyone could give me some information. From what I have gathered he was involved in an amphibious landing at lingayen gulf, luzon. And fought at aitape at the dirnimour river.
I would love to hear from someone who fought in the south pacific. Thanks, Ron Stroder
