  1. I found birth and death (both in Maryland) information but nothing else about his military record. Sorry. The book has snippets available on google books. His name is listed in a roster of 17th Airborne Division Association members. A page that might have information about him isn't available. Two Bauers are listed. But you probably know that.
  2. Malcolm John Stevenson was born on 5 Feb 1923 in West Allis, Wisconsin. He died 28 Apr 2000 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He registered for the draft on 30 Jun 1942 in West Allis. He enlisted on 25 Jun 1943 and was discharged on 3 Oct 1945. It appears as though he might have been in Battery C of the 188th Field Army Battalion... ? That's all I was able to find. From the US National Archives aad.archives.gov
  3. Any thoughts why a man born in Vermont and raised in Massachusetts would end up in the South Dakota National Guard? And, I wonder who Mrs. J. W. Temple was? He got married in 1918 to Jennie Leila Davidson ...
  4. A friendly jeweler might be willing to help too.
  5. Nice tag, pretty unusual. Love when they have their typhoid date.
  6. For the US Army guys you can usually get their enlistment information at the National Archives. http://aad.archives.gov/aad/index.jsp It can be hard to figure out their service history though. Sometimes Findagrave.com has information. Or depending on how hard you want to look - https://familysearch.org/ I think they have the 1940 census records. With some of the unusual surnames - you might have some luck.
  7. The O for Burton L. Smith means he was an officer. Try looking here http://aad.archives.gov/aad/index.jsp And findagrave.com
  8. Try this too. You can search by his serial number. http://aad.archives.gov/aad/index.jsp
  9. Sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure what you mean about the stamping looking different. It doesn't appear different in the 2 images you included.
  10. Since the original post about Van Splinter is a few years old - I recommend sending the writer a private message. Joy
  11. Also in Braddock's book is some information about serial numbers - numbers were assigned to areas in 1919, which topped out at 6,620,000. On June 30, 1940, the number was up to 7,070,199. On July 1, a new series of serial numbers were issued. In describing what he decided to call M-1924, Braddock says they are made of monel with 60% nickel. It does have a very slight magnetic attraction. Braddock believes the metal changed because of a regulation issued 25 November 1924, AR 600-40: "34. Tags, Identification. - Two identification tags of aluminum or other metal," - Which Braddock b
  12. He's there, in the National Archives. File unit: Korean War Extract Data File, as of April 29, 2008, 6/28/1950 - 3/10/1954 Joy

  14. The first posting in this thread has a blue dot above the eagle's head and they seemed to refer to that as an 'eye'. One of my wings also has a dot above the eagle's head and that was what I was trying to clarify. Sorry I wasn't clearer on that. Joy
  15. Lee, Thank you so much for your very informative response to my question! Excellent information! Joy
