    Seeking records of the US Army Remount Service

    Charlotte Tressler Wayfarer

      I'm an author researching the US Army Remount Service during WWII. I'm focusing on Fort Bastrop in Texas, Fort Reno in Oklahoma, and the Remount Station at Grosseto in Italy. My sources so far have been a Doctorate thesis on the topic provided to me by the WWII History Museum in New Orleans and the Military Veterinary Services manual provided by the US Army Office of Medical History.

       

      I'd love to hear from someone who is a descendant of a member of the Remount Service, who may have heard stories or have photos from a primary source. I know my chances of connecting with a living WWII veteran who served in the Remount Service are very slim, given the age of the surviving veterans, but that would be even better.
