80 MOLER CHARLES G CHUCK ND AAF 12 3 1944 NO 12 3 1945 NO MOLER JEFF SON I am currently waiting on my father's records from the National Archive (If any exist). I have a few documents but they are confusing. His discharge certificate says that his date of enlistment was 20 Nov 1945 and that Shemya was his place of entry. However most of the photos that he took in Alaska were in 1944(?). Also under "Prior Service" on his discharge it states U.S. Army 1yr 8mos 16 days (?). I believe Charles was in the Army Signal Corps, and was from Bakerton, West Virginia. My father died in 1994 and would not discuss any of his army service with me. Any information about him or his unit would be appreciated.
