I know this is an older post but I just wanted to share my family's military history. My grandfather joined the army in 1936. He stayed with the U.S. Army until 1947 when he decided to join the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed in Germany at some point but I'm not sure when or for how long exactly. He passed away when I was 8 years old so I didn't get to know him very well.

Does anyone know if I could possibly get his military records? I'd love to know more about his military career.

Here's some pictures my KK (Grandma) gave me. My mother still has the lederhosen he's wearing in the photo with the 2 lovely local ladies in Bavarian attire ๐Ÿ˜

My grandfather was a bit of a ladies man. Though I cannot 100% verify they were truly prostitutes, that's just how the story of that photo has been passed down from Grandma ๐Ÿ˜‚

It seems your Grandma was a little jealous :wink: to me these are "ordinary" locals in typical Bavarian attire.

I never really thought they looked like prostitutes and I agree with you. 2 lovely local ladies in Bavarian attire ๐Ÿ˜Š
