|Date Entered Service:
||March 7, 1941
||HQ & HQ SQ 58th Bomb Wing, AAF, AUS Component
|Location of Unit:
||Tinian, June 1945
||MOS 502-Administrative NCO
|Rank Upon Discharge:
||December 12, 1945
|Post WWII Civilian Occupation(s):
||Various jobs from time of discharge from the service until August 1, 1948, when I was hired to work in our local furniture store and funeral home where I managed the retail furniture store business and worked also in the funeral business until August of 1980 when I retired.
|Thoughts About the 58th:
||I spent the bulk of my almost four years in the service in the overseas depots in the States, but it was a new experience to be shipped over to the small island of Tinian and help out in a small way in the HQ office. It was also a new experience to be living next to the natives and see how they lived in their way of life.
||According to the copy of my Honorable Discharge paper, they have listed the following: Date of departure of overseas 5/30/45 CPTO, arrived 6/8/45; date of departure for overseas 7/21/45 SWPT O, arrived 8/15/45; date of departure for USA 11/15/45 USA, arrived 11/30/45.
