Thought I might post this here and see if anyone might possibly know something about it.The gentlemen 3rd from the right is my Grandfather, (now deceased). You all probaly recognize General Eisenhower. The only thing I know is I was told my Grandfather came home after WW2 with Ike.
No one could tell me the reason he deserved such an honor :( . I know he served over seas, not sure where, and I was told that he was a Mess Sargeant. I think the patch on his shoulder is 2nd Armored but not sure. Does anyone know any links or have any ideas where I can go to learn more? Or better yet, anyone know anyone in the picture? I tried to clean it up some to get more detail but no luck.

Sorry can't help.
Maybe you could try the local VFW.

I think that's an Armor Center patch from Fort Knox on his shoulder. If the picture has enouch resolution, you might learn something from the packet/jacket he's got in his left hand.
