recently I came across an old news paper dated April 9th 1945. I am in no ways related to these people but I thought researcher might like to have this.
His Name is Harry Bohl he was Wounded in action and this is what the newspaper had to say.
PFC Harry Bohl was slightly wounded in the army on March 25 in Germany. His wife Lorraine recieved the War Department telegram on Friday and a letter from him on Saturday, in which he said he was in a hospital and had been awarded the order of the Purple Heart, which he was sending home.
PFC. Bohl was inducted January 29 1943, he trained at camp Ruckner, Alabama, and Fort Knox, Kentucky, after which he went to Arizona for desert training. While there he received a 15-day furlough and in April went overseas. He has served in England, France, Holland, Belgium and Germany.
He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Bohl, 811 Cleveland Avenue. He attended Ashland High School and was employed by the country club prior to induction. His wife and son lives at 234 Orange Street.
I have a snap shot of him in the old newspaper if anyone would like to have it let me know at this e-mail address [email protected]
