Hi All,

I know this is a stab in the dark, but I am researching my paternal grandfather Henry McCarson, he was in the 119th and I know discharged on Nov.1945, any information that anyone could offer would be so appreciated.

Thank you,
Reagan McCarson

some of these dates are confusing.
my reading indicates he was in the Co "B" of 15th Infantry.
then maybe transferred to the 119th when he was sent home.
discharge date looks like Dec. 8, 1945
Could you provide birth, death, cemetery,
where he enlisted at and where he lived after his Army service. hjd

I am sorry, after doing some additional research I believe he was part of the 30th infantry division. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.
