Hello WWII Forums. FNG Here from Pennsylvania, and a former Soldier myself--Field Artillery Officer for about 10 years of active service. I found the site in a search for my Dad's experience in WWII. He served through Korea and Vietnam but never talked much about his early service after enlisting and ending up in the War in the Pacific with the Army's 147th Infantry Regiment, a unit activated from the Ohio National Guard that was standing up for the war effort just as Dad enlisted. Toward the end of his days in late 2017 he told me a few stories which piqued my interest. Thanks to all who contribute to this wealth of information. I spend most of yesterday afternoon and evening just browsing through the content... fascinating.
