Pat Nagel, the daughter of the late Camp Crowder trainee John Moriarty shared with me the two special editions of Radio News that her father had saved.
American Radio History site is in the process uploading all issues of Radio News.
The November, 1942 Special U.S. Army Signal Corps Issue will be available soon.
The originals of both issues along with other Signal Corps related artifacts will be donated to an archive, museum, library, or historical society. An announcement of which institution accepts the donation will be posted on this blog.
The February, 1944 issue contained the following photo of what may be the 45th Signal Company constructing communications wire in Sicily
This was about 17 months before Felix A. Cizewski was transferred to the 45th Signal Company in France in January, 1945.
While my late father is not in this photo, in my nine years of research this is the first photo I have found that illustrates in detail the type of work my late father did in France and Germany while serving in the 45th Signal Company in 1945
Among the reason Ms. Nagel shared these magazines is her hope that families of WWII Signal Corps veterans would find insight into their relative’s service or photos of their relatives.
I turn out to be one of those relatives who so far has found this photo and articles in the November, 1942 issue on the Signal Corps’ Camp Crowder, Missouri where my late father trained for about 19 months.
A Radio News page has been added to my Unofficial Informal Archive of the U.S. Army Signal Corps in Northwest Europe in WWII to make this great resource available to other WWII family history researchers.
