I am 23 years old and living in Ohio now. These are my grandfather's discharge papers, he has been dead for about 12 years. I inherited them and wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.. Even my brand new bushmaster ar15. These are the originals and due to age they are kind of hard to read. The reason I am so interested is because of how little I know about my grandfather, he died when I was just turning 11, too young to really get to know a person. He never smiled much, he always had a stone cold look on his face. blacked out certain information that I don't want the entire world to know, but other than that, can anyone explain what he did in the Army or his medals? I have heard many different things and too many to really get a solid closure on what the papers that I hold mean.
