My grandfather served in WW2 when he was a young man and im having trouble finding out his attachments during the war. The little my father was told doesn't fit what the papers we have after his death. His discharge paper state he was in the 25th tank battalion HOWEVER, he landed in Anzio and fought in Salerno so it couldn't be in the 25th as it was never in Anzio and Italy. The only clues i have are pictures of M10 tank destroyers, that led me to find the roster of the 601st tank destroyer battalion, but his name isn't there. My father said my grandfather was a very headstrong guy and he talked about being busted down a rank or two during the war. The discharge papers also list him as a Private so I think that was the case as he was in the service till the end of the war. Could they of transferred his because of this? Im just wondering what else i can do before I start the process of getting his papers from the archive and paying for it. Then after that Im off to my other grandfather that was in Korea and has a Bronze star NOBODY knew about till after his death. He only ever told me that "we always knew when the Chinese were going to attack cause they smelled like garlic" I just feel like i need to keep their stories alive for my kids that are getting to the age of asking about them.
