So I have a question. I didnt know my grandparents on my mothers side too well since they both died when I was very young. But my grandfather was a WW2 veteran (at least thats what his grave says). So I decided to check into it a little more and it says he didnt enlist until September 28th,1945, and was stationed in FL until December 20,1948 (he never left the country). If the war ended in September 2nd,1945, and he never left the country..what would he have been doing for those 3 years? Why would he be considered a veteran? Sorry, Im very new to learning about WW2. Was the US still on guard doing those years? He was in the Navy and was on the USS Corry. Thanks for any help.
