I've posted here once before, about a year ago, but only heard from one person, so I thought I would give it another try. Here's what I know from the records that could be recovered from the archives, from my dad's dog tags, and from what he told us (which wasn't much): George Llewellyn Kremer, Jr., serial number 32223422, transferred as a Corporal to the 44th Infantry Division at Ft. Lewis, WA, SQ#303, Hq TIS, Dec.15/1942. Date of induction was Mar.5/1942. He was in the Officer Candidate Class of #135, attached to 16th. Co.THIRD STUD TNG BN (OFF) FIRST STUD TNG REGT, ISSC at Ft. Benning, GA for the month of Dec, 1942 . His Final Payment Worksheet says: Enlisted or Inducted in Brooklyn (King's County), NY on Mar. 5, 1942, and that he arrived back in the States on 6 November 1945. He had three years of service and was honorably discharged on 12 November 1945, and the notation is RR1-1. He was with the 174th. Infantry in San Fernando, CA, in July 1943 and had a pass allowing him "...to be absent from this post at any time to carry out his duties as assistant to the Special Service Officer." It's signed by 1st. Lt. Carl A. Straub, the Special Service Officer, and dated July 27, '43. He told us he was involved in putting together mostly radio shows for the troops, and he said he worked on a radio show called "The Isle of Dreams." At one time, we had some of his radio scripts, but they were lost during a move. He was at Camp Clatsop, OR, in 1942 (we think, based on what was written on the backs of some pictures), as well as Ft. Lewis, WA. He achieved Sharpshooter status (203 points) while at Camp Clatsop, OR. He became friends at some point (probably in San Fernando, CA) with Chaplain Boardman Wallace Edwards, US Army. I have some pictures he took in 1945 of Versailles, Compiegne (dated May 1945), and one that says "Marie Antoinette's favorite chalet." I also have a post-war picture of him standing in front of the Jockey House at the Compiegne Racecourse, as well as other pictures taken in the States, during his training in WA and OR and in San Fernando, CA. He told us he took a class at the Sorbonne after the war. He returned to Brooklyn, NY (King's County) to live with his parents (George L. Kremer and Lulu [Dieffendorfer] Kremer) after the war ended. Can anyone help me figure out how he got from the 174th Infantry to the 44th Infantry, with which he said he served during the Battle of the Bulge? FYI, he gave me a bell that has "The Battle of Bastogne Dec 1944" engraved on it, that he said was made from some sort of shell casings. I still have it. I truly appreciate any help anyone can provide. I'm desperate to find out more about my dad's service. I wish he had been more willing to talk about it while he was alive. Thank you! PS/If there's another place on this site where I should have started this thread, please advise.
