Finally found my grandpa's WWII records--it says his organization was Company F of the 11th Infantry in the army (he was a Staff Sgt.) and that he participated in the Rhineland and Northern France campaigns, yet it also says he spent 4 years and 10 months in foreign service, and 1 year and 9 months continental service. Can you tell me if anyone knows anything or knew of anyone in his company, and what the 11th Infantry did in WWII? It say his military occupational specialty was "Sound Logger" or something like that--I can't make out anything but "Sound L er"--What did he do exactly? It says his arrival departure dates were such: Date of Departure: Destination: Date of Arrival: 27/September 1939 APO 5 October 1939 19 May 1942 USA 23 May 1942 12 July 1942 APO 16 July 1942 31 August 1943 USA 12 September 1943 21 February 1944 APO 5 March 1944 Unknown USA 19 March 1945 (he was shot in the leg in Luxembourg by a sniper on 23rd January) It says on his paperwork that he received a European Middle Eastern African Campaign Ribbon with two stars, Good Conduct Medal, Purple Heart, Combat Infantry badge and a WWII Victory ribbon. Yet when we researched and requested copies of his medals, in the listing of medals found for my grandpa the army they sent s a Bronze Star with V Device and Army air medal, along with his other decorations...Which would be correct? The army's info or his paperwork? Also, what's an APO?
