Admittedly, I should have compiled more information before I started this post. I'm in the process of obtaining more information from my friend, but he's busy with work right now, so I'll post more info as it comes to me.
I did a short text with him last night and I learned that his father, prior to being deployed to Europe, was guarding Italian POWs in the Red River Valley of Minnesota/North Dakota. My friend may have the name of the specific camp. I did a bit of research and found that there were about 20 POW camps in Minnesota during WW2. The camps he might have been posted to, that were in the Red River Valley of MN, were Warren, Crookston, Moorhead, Ada and Ortonville, MN. Possibly Grand Forks or Grafton, ND. Here's a map showing the camps:
So I was in error in claiming that he was never involved with the Military Police. Once again, my apologies for not getting enough info before I started. My friend has more info on his father and I'm also waiting to get permission from him to post his father's name. I have a document/write up describing his actions that earned him a Bronze Star in March of '45 while in Luxembourg.
So much more info will be incoming!
Thanks again for your help. I appreciate it, as does my friend.
