    https://www.nps.gov/aleu/learn/photosmultimedia/upload/History-50th.pdf I 100% know this as this 7th ID unit now, I just need to put together the little peices as well as try to find his decorations as well as his mentions of Fort Leonard Wood. Im getting so close. Alot of the stuff in that document matches what my mom told me about his time and what I found out on my own (As well as you all)

    Don't forget the National Archives. Take food if you go in there.
