A great picture of Ed when he was in the Army, I have been trying to make out the divsion or company that he was in from the cake. Note: On the cake it appears to read: Regular Army Army, Company "C" Bn (Battalion). They are a infantry unit with the crossed rifles.

Ed and Marie

Ed and Marie Krenzelok around 1954

Ed with Linda, Larry, Bill and Alan. I guess we could not get more of us in the booth Alan says.

This is a 1957 photo of Ed and Marie with their first four children, Linda, Larry, Bill and Alan.

Marie, with the three youngest, Alan, John and Anmarie. I want to thank Ed's family for sharing these great pictures with us. It helps me to get to know who my relatives are.

We do not know much about Ed's military history but according to a Ladysmith Newspaper Article from when his sister Bette died he was a private at Camp Livingston, Louisiana.

Camp Livingston was also started in 1940 and was first known as Camp Tioga. It was renamed Camp Livingston in honor of Chancellor Robert R. Livingston, negotiator of the Louisiana Purchase. Camp Livingston was home to the 28th, 32nd, 38th and 86th Infantry Divisions during the war. Camp Livingston was designated as an infantry replacement training center, as well as a garrison for these infantry divisions. The 38th Division was known as the "Avengers of Bataan" and the 86th Division was the first American unit to cross the Danube River into Germany. Over 500,000 troops trained on the 47,000-acre base during the war. Camp Livingston was deactivated in late 1945.

Ed may having been doing his Basic training at Camp Livingston

From the Ladysmith Newspaper telling us that brothers Robert was a Aviation Cadet at Amarillo Texas, Ed was at Camp Livingston and Master Sgt Joe Krenzelok was stationed at Trinidad Island off South America. Betty died June 30 1945 so we know it was around this time.
