I came back from a family reunion and my grandfather Per told me that his uncle served in the US Army and fought in Okinawa. I had no idea my grandfathers uncle was a WW2 Vet. and of course I wanted to find out more about this uncle of his. This is how far I've gotten: Name: Sten (Hjalmar) Halldin Born: 16th January, 1905 in Umeå, Sweden. Died: 14th May, 1965 in New Jersey, USA. Enlisted: 23rd December, 1942 in Newark, New Jersey. Rank: Private He took a boat from Sweden to New York in the 1930's, (I'm not sure which year it was) with an American show dancer. All I know beyond that is that he served in the army and fought in the battle of Okinawa during the WW2 and died alone with no wife or children in 1965. I wonder if it's possible to contact some agency or organization to find out something about Sten, which unit he served in or something like that. Any help would be appreciated. / Erik Halldin.
