Stories about George B. Hauser

The 'invalid' grandfather

I found the pension record of George B. Hauser, my grandfather, and noticed that he was listed as 'invalid".  None of his living grandchildren knew that he had any disabilities from being the the army.  This set off a quest to find his service record.  I had requestedit twice but was told it was probably destroyed in the fire in St. Louis in the 1970's.  This time I tried to reqest his pension record, but in error, I requested his service recrord again.  I was amazed and surprised that I received his service record a few days later.
