He was my father. Talmadge was his middle name. He gave me that middle name also. I have a photo of him in uniform but I can't upload it. He told me he was at Anzio and the Aleutians. I can't get his records they were destroyed in the NPRC fire of 1973. He never mentioned being in Korea. I know he was stationed in Casablanca, the Azores and Mitchell Field NY. He retired as a Tech Sgt.
Years ago I found a roster (1st Special Forces) I think, with him on it. It was an image of a list. Can't find it now.
I found it, it was the 1st Special Service Force roster.
