Ive have been trying to do a bit of research to find exactly what unit my papaw was in when he was stationed in the phillies during WWII. Does anyone know a website with a complete list of names of those who served in the philles during WWII that were american? There are 2 people that I know of that were in the phillies during WWII, one Being my papaw Staff Sergeant Marcus H Ramey and a man I assume he was friends with which my brother has the pic of my papaw and this man. The man's Rank is unknown to me but his name is Laurence Bowman from either North Dakota or South Dakota or somewhere in the area. Basicly I am doing a bit of research to find out exactly what my papaw did during his time in the phillies and see what battles he praticipated in and also see what weapons he may had carried( such as maybe the M1 Garand or B.A.R) not sure what he carried. And I am not sure what he did in the years he was there. Can anyone help?
