    Hi I’m georgia my father served in World War II.
    I’ve recently went to a few places he served in Europe except France where we were warned please don’t ever go there...not sure why. But I’m honoring that request. This looked like a good site to do research about his service. He passed away when I was 6. So all I have are his discharge papers and I figured that is a good place to start.

    Thanks for all the info just reading the threads I have learned a lot.

    Hi Georgia. We'd be happy to help. As Opana said, post whatever information you have and we'll try to do what we can. Also it would be great if you could post pictures of your trip.
