Hello, I hope someone can please help me. I'm trying to find information about the regiment my brother's Father (Oscar Benjamin Ray, born July 24,1912 in Dallas TX, died Nov 19, 1956 in Beaumont TX) served in during WWII... (regiment reunions/survivors, company roster, regiment history/documentation and hopefully details about where/when Oscar was while serving). My brother (Joe Ray) does not use computers so I'm helping him and will give him all information. I found an online photo of Oscar Ray's tombstone (in Beaumont TX...which matches with the only information we had that Oscar lived/worked in Beaumont as a Auto Wrecking Yard Mgr) on the internet and it reads: WWII co c 141 td tng bn.... does that mean Oscar was in the 141st Infantry, Company C, Private status, Tank Destroyer Training Battalion...Army and/or TX Natl Guard?? Was Oscar involved in overseas fighting or remain in TX as a trainer? Military Records groups say Oscar's military records were probably destroyed in the 1973 fire but we can't research because we don't have Oscar's SS# or Military I.D.#s. I found an online Death Cert for Oscar but no details were on that. This week, my brother traveled to the Cemetery and spent time/cleaned his father's non-maintained grave. My brother (a proud Army Veteran who served in Korea during the Vietnam War) never knew his Father, as Oscar died when my brother was 4 years old. My brother does not have any photos of his father either My brother is depressed he knows nothing of his father's military service (or any personal information or heritage etc)...our Mother did not share that information. If I can help put my brother in touch with any regiment survivors who knew Oscar or websites specific to Oscar's regiment that might have a photo/details of Oscar, it will help give my brother peace, a sense of 'family' and closure. Thanks to anyone for your time, knowledge, help and leads.
