    Hi everyone! I'm just getting started to research my wife's grandfather's involvement in WWII, and was hoping to get some help, as I'm completely new to this. I have found his enlistment record, but I'm not sure what other information I can obtain online, so I turned to a few pictures we have of him in uniform to see if I could learn anything. I apologize for their size; the originals were all very small, and I scanned them years ago, before I knew I might need/want to be able to zoom in on the details. If I can find the originals, I will re-scan them.

    Here's what I know about my grandfather-in-law:
    Name: Charlie S. Johnson
    Army Serial Number: 14092806
    Enlistment Date: March 23, 1942

    Family history says that he served in the Pacific throughout the war. From the pictures, his rank appears to Sergeant First Class, and his insignia *might* be that of the 24th Infantry or "Hawaiian" Division. Confirmation or correction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your help!
