Dad retired Spring of 1969 from Mannhiem Germany.  He was attached to the Corp of Engineers.

Dad's service was from 1936-1941, then from 1942 - 1946, 1951 (?) to 1964, then from 1965-1969.

Some of the posts he was stationed at:
Ft Dix, NJ
Pearl Harbor/Schoffield Barracks
Ft Ord, CA
Ft Bragg, NC (2-3 times)
Ft Jackson, SC
Ft Drum, NY
Hanau Germany
Mannheim Germany
Heidleberg Germany
Washington DC

He served in the Third Army under Gen Patton-in France and the Rhineland from 1944-1945.  The Bronze Star I believe is from the Battle of the Bulge.
