Thoughts About the 58th:
Comments: This information is all that I have on my father at this time, but I wanted to enter him in your records. He has been deceased since March 29, 1976 and is buried at Calumet Park Cemetery in Merrillville, IN. I would love to have more information on his military records if anyone has any. Thanks.
