I don't know a great deal about Bill's service only that he was stationed at Lowry Field in Denver Co towards the end of his service. He road a white Harley Davidson 45 side shift motorcycle and met his wife Rose there and they married after a 3 week romance. Bill was a meat butcher at the base and discharged as a Staff Sergeant.
