Service Info

Uncle Al told me he was in the service after WW2, rebuilding some of the damage done during that time.  He went to Hitler's mansion in vienna, I believe it is called "Eagles Nest". He remarked that it cost 3 million dollars to build, no telling what it would cost today. It is beautiful. He had buildings for his troops to stay in at the foot of the mansion. Al had a lot of photos, with his military buddies, which are very interesting. Some are named, some are not. He did not talk much about his service, other than he played baseball and they won big while playing.  i guess after the war, the men had to have something to do during their spare time.  He was very proud of the baseball win. There is a photo of him riding what looks like a Lipazzon horse.

Uncle Al was a very kind person, a hard worker and very family oriented.  He was a blessing to anyone that knew him.  He had a wonderful sense of humor, which is a great thing to have.  i miss him and his wife.
