    I want to thank you so much for “A War Story” Arnie! Here’s another story, told by my mom and edited by me, which was triggered by viewing a photograph of Dad’s unit, taken at Ft. Crowder!!!

    When World War ll broke out Artie joined the army. He was in the Signal Corps which consisted of intelligence and communications officers involved with coordinating and transmitting information using any means available, including carrier pigeons. The Signal Corps conducted training of the pigeons and the training of those who trained the pigeons.

    There wasn’t much need for carrier pigeons with all the new technology and the US Army decided to retrain some of their pigeon handlers as photographers. This chore was Arthur’s responsibility.

    At first Artie tried to convince the hierarchy that there were many talented amateur and professional photographers to choose from, already in the military, but the army was intent on retraining those pigeon handlers. So, that’s what Art did.

    This unit later became part of the 164th Signal Photo Company and was assigned in the China-Burma-India Theater with Arthur. He was very proud of his combat photographers. His unit distinguished themselves in intense combat in the Burma campaign and in battles along the Lido section of the Stillwell Road. Although it was very dangerous work, they produced an impressive record. Arthur received the Bronze Star for his service during the campaign.
