    Seeking information on my grandfather Walter Graubart

    Daniel Walter Newbie

      Hello, I am trying to find as much information as I can on my grandfather, Walter E. Graubart, a Freemason of NY and his role in Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF). I know his title was "security" and that he was General Eisenhower's right-hand man, driver, and personal translator. Other than that he said the ManPADS were heavy to carry. I can't seem to find much information, if any. on my grandfather at all. I have his enlistment paperwork that says he was a jeweler and a student in Kentucky before joining the Army. I'd like to know how he ended up in SHAEF from enlistment. Did he request it or was it offered to him? What else did he do in SHAEF? When or why did his service conclude? How or where can I find as much information on my grandfather as possible? Thank you in advance for your time and help.
