I am looking for items belonging to and/or information about the service of 2 of my ancestors, my grandpa and my great-grandpa.
My great-grandpa, J.D. Hunt served during WW2 in the Aleutian Islands as an army engineer. My grandpa said that J.D. didn't talk about his service much, but told him of a story when he was building an airfield in the Aleutians and came under heavy Japanese fire. That's when he learned not to volunteer anymore. He was born on October 5th 1918 in Texas and died on May 25th 2004 in Wisconsin. From what I know he served from July 15th 1940 - September 27th 1945, so he served the entire war. I am not sure what J.D. stood for but I know he went by Jack his entire life. Any help is appreciated.
My Grandpa, James Hunt, I know little of his service. He is still alive but didn't keep anything from his time in the air force. He served in the 1950's post Korean War but pre Vietnam war and other then that I know very little. He was born on January 9th 1940. I know he was in north Africa, Libya I believe but that's it.
