I asked my wife what her grandfather did in WWII. She had no clue, nor did his childern. I order the discharge papers and now I'm attempting to understand them. He was discharged in September 1944 at the seperation center at Fort Sheridan, IL. He was a Private, Flight Traffic Clerk. Attended Ground School Div, Sta#11, PW, ATC Hamilton Fld, Cal; Grad. He was in the 1503 AAF Base Unit, PD, ATC. He has an honorable discharge
The comments on his seperation papers reads:
Physical Condition when Discharged: Good
Honorably Discharge by reason of: Sec X AR 615-360 & AAF Ltr 35-106, 28 Jun 44 & Ago **
Periods of Active Duty: 15 November 1943 - 16 September 1944
Remarks: **26 Jul 44, AG 220.8, 17 Jul 44 (OD-F-AAF-M). Convenience of the Government. No time lost under AW 107. Lapel Button Issued. Foreign Service: 14 days. Left United States 11 Aug 44; arr United States 22 Aug 44, mustering-out payment $100.00; entitles to $300.00
What does that mean? I cannot find a description of section X means, nor can I find a copy of the other guidence listed in the discharge. Nothing from what I've heard about the guy leads me to believe he had some sort of "issue" from the war, he was a sucessful businessman and on the board of his hospital.
Any help would be greatly appericated
