Looking for a WWII vet
My father is trying to help a WWII vet find an old buddy, or at least find out what happened to him. I only have a limited amount of info, but can get more later. I don't have a unit or even a branch of the service at this time. I do have a name and a few other bits of info.
The guy we are looking for is/was named Norbert Strauch. He was possibly from Illinois. In 1945 he was 19-20 years old so he would be pushing 80 if he is still alive. He served in Okinawa and was injured. Originally the guy my dad is helping thought he had been killed, but he later found out he was injured. After recovering he was possibly reassigned to another unit. Also apparently he had a real good looking girlfriend at the time as the gentleman my dad is helping rembered that he carried a picture of her in his wallet. (I know lots of guys probably had pictures of their best girls)
No real info pops up in google or other sources my dad has used. I do not know which sites he has used. I would appreciate any info on places to look.
