  1. That is a find Glen. This reminds of what Gene Logsdon writes about his early life, just before World War II started and everything changes.

  2. My wife's father was driving a four-horse team as a farm hand in North Iowa right up to 1940 or '41. Until the 34th Infantry Division, Iowa National Guard, went active. Per what he told her, then he was driving a truck in North African and Italy until coming home in '45. When he passed, some former Army friends told my wife he was Infantry. Had her pull his DD 214, and what pops up but I CIB and three campaign stars for North Africa and Italy. Apparently he did more than drive a truck. Fast forward to 2010, and the Iowa National Guard pulls me out of the 109th Med Bn (which was under the 34th in WWII, but under the 67th Troop Command in 2010) and transfers me to the 34th Infantry Division for a year in Afghanistan. Wish he'd still been around to talk after coming back from serving with them.
