  2. I have started a FaceBook page honoring 50th Signal Battalion WWII vets. Check it out - some interesting articles! https://www.facebook.com/pg/50th-Signal-Battalion-WWII-107231681051852/
  3. I have photos of him in his uniform which can be positively dated from November 1945 (see below). The little 2 1/2-year-old girl we know was born in 1943. Perhaps they received their DUIs before they were discharged. He would've been discharged early with the "points" system since he had served in the Aleutian Islands before joining the 50th Signal Battalion.
  4. At first I thought you were referring to the yellow Pacific campaign ribbon on the uniform which my father-in-law qualified for by serving in a different Army unit in the Aleutians, but I see you’re referring just to the DUI. The DUI on his uniform dates at least as early as November 1945, the date of a photo we have of him in uniform taken after his return from the European theater.
  5. You may also note he has the campaign ribbons for both the Pacific and European battlefronts. That is because originally he was in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska before joining in the D-Day invasion of Normandy.
  6. Here is the 50th Signal Battalion DUI my father-in-law had received after the end of the war and it's placement on both shoulders of his uniform. As you can see, it was made by NBI Co. in Japan.
