    Finding my Relative's unit information in World War II

    Mark Krieger Newbie

      My uncle, Leo Krieger, recently died at age 104. He served three years in the US Army during World War II, along with my father and three other brothers. He had told me he served on Tinian after the Marines took the island, I have pictures of him with his unit there. He was in the Signal Corps, he told me he was a telephone operator. I have pictures, but no unit designations are obvious. He lost his discharge papers, I wrote to the govt to get this information, but they told me they were lost in the fire in St Louis in 1974. To find his discharge info, I need more info, including what unit he served in so the VA can check in records of his unit which were hopefully not lost in the fire. Any suggestions?

       

      thanks,
