I'm researching my grandfather's time in the war. He died when I was two years old and my father doesn't know much about his past. My grandmother didn't tell me much either - he never wanted to talk about his time in the war. We know he was a prisoner of war after he fought in the battle of the bulge. I did some research and found out the following: SERIAL NUMBER 34819565 NAME FRANKLIN TRUMAN A GRADE, ALPHA Private First Class GRADE CODE Second Lieutenant or Nurse or Dietitian or Physical therapy aide or Private First Class or Ensign or Second Class, Seaman SERVICE CODE ARMY ARM OR SERVICE Infantry ARM OR SERVICE CODE INF: INFANTRY DATE REPORT: DAY (DD) 4 DATE REPORT: MONTH (MM) 4 DATE REPORT: YEAR (Y) 1945 RACIAL GROUP CODE WHITE STATE OF RESIDENCE Alabama TYPE OF ORGANIZATION PARENT UNIT NUMBER PARENT UNIT TYPE AREA European Theatre: Germany LATEST REPORT DATE: DAY (DD) 25 LATEST REPORT DATE: MONTH (MM) 7 LATEST REPORT DATE: YEAR (Y) 1945 SOURCE OF REPORT Individual has been reported through sources considered official.

I'd like to give a report to my father for Christmas.
