Nice pic. Glad he was on our side. Back to the discharge one more time: he is shown as arriving in ETO on Sep 11 44 and is credited with Rome-Arno campaign participation. Problem is, Rome-Arno ended two days earlier (Sep 9). How did he get credit for serving in a campaign he missed? OK, hold onto that. The truck bumper shows 1st Tactical Air Force, 319th Air Service Group. 319 ASG is shown at APO 374 after V-E Day. APO 374 was located at Le Duc, Salon, Dole, and Mirecourt, France after Sep 11 44. You can hunt those locations up. Now, stay with me - Stanton gives a code number for campaign participation. I presume these one or two digit campaign codes are official army usage. If so, then try this on: Rome-Arno is #35 whereas Rhineland is #34. As a crackpot theory, would it make more sense for his one campaign to have been Rhineland? Rhineland starts four days after his arrival and goes thru V-E Day. From that, would that mean he served in 319th ASG? Or was the presence of that truck just happenstance? The good news is, the USAF historical operation is at Maxwell AFB and they have tons of operational records available on CD ($30 each the last time I ordered). They are very nice there and usually pretty prompt. It's late tonight, so I'll hunt up more info tomorrow. Don't want to get your hopes up, so retain some skepticism.
