American Theater Streamer

First, I would like to thank each of you for your Military Service, and to those returning from overseas "WELCOME HOME".
 
My intention is to list the information I have on my father and some of my family here on the Army TWS.  Both of my Great Grandfathers were GAR Civil War Veterans. My father, Dennis Loomis, and at least five of my uncles were WWII Army and Army Air Corps. My Great x4 Grandfather, Jonathan Loomis, served seven years in the Army of the Revolution from Massachusetts and fought at the battle of Bunker Hill. He served with Stevens' Company of Mass., Rossiter's Regt., and fought at the battle of Bunker Hill. That makes me both a Son of the American Revolution and S.U.V.: Sons Of Union Veterans of the Civil War.

Most information on this pr
ofile page is intended as a Remembrance Profile on my Father, Dennis W. Loomis. He was born in Sherman Township (Tustin) Michigan  on 29 January 1924; served U.S. Army World War II from April 1944 to January 1945; died 30 January 1992, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. His remains rest at the family plot at Burdell Cemetery, Sherman Township, Michigan, along with his parents and grandparents.

Dennis Loomis: I am still trying to piece together my father's WWII service. He  graduated high school in 1942 and attempted to enlist twice which was denied because he was classified as a farmer and he owned a small dairy. However, in early 1944 he was drafted and then injured during training and spent several months recuperating a knee injury while in the San Francisco area, at General Dibble Army Hospital, Palo Alto. From Camp Roberts, Calif., he was assigned as an armed guard on prison trains hauling Japanese POWs from the west coast to internment camps such as Camp McCoy at Sparta, Wisconsin. He was given a medical discharge in January 1945. His disability was rated at 20% and lists him as Military Police because of his duties as an armed guard.

Thank you for stopping by,

Steven Loomis, Vietnam War Veteran, US Naval Advisory Group Vietnam, 1971/1972.
