One of Ganddad's pictures. He was a replacement in the 129th. When the 37th I.D. returned to the states, Granddad didn't have enough service points to go home. He spent 3 months in the 4151st Q.M. Depot Company, and then his last 6 months as an MP. I assume this photo was taken when the Q.M. unit was disbanded. The dates line up that this was about the time Grandad left this unit. 3 of those on the bottom row have a 37th ID combat patch on, as does my Granddad at the end of the second row from the bottom on the right, or maybe he is the one on the top right, hard to tell .

Good old points system...my grandpa was a rifleman with the 65th ID, when it was disbanded he became a clerk typist with the 9th, then they found out he spoke German so he was a MP for his last 4 months dealing with "higher profile" German prisoners. Went from a PFC to Tec 5 to Sgt back to OFC when he was discharged all in 5mos
