Don't know if this forum is still operating but my Dad, Sargent Engle, was also a member of the 383rd Battalion.
My Father Kenneth Voigt was in the 383rd AAA he is still alive but memory is fading could you send anything digital to my email firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.
Been a long time since my first post. If anyone needs a pdf of THE HOT LOOP let me know. I’d be happy to email it. It tells all about the 383rd.
Edwin “Ack-Ack” Ackerman sadly passed away back around 2005. After the Japanese surendered and they were sending troops home, he volunteered to go to Hiroshima to serve as an occupational policeman with the Army. Literally at ground zero. He stayed about a year and then came back to Ohio. He was a kid and the whole experience was pretty heavy for him. He never talked about it to his wife and kids, but he opened up to me in later years. Like most of your relatives... he was a good man.
The Hotloop has photos of everyone. I suggest you guys email me if you haven’t seen it. It was amazing to see my Grandfather’s face again...
