Specialize in WWII/Korean War, Army Enlisted Discharges (WD AGO Form 53-55) It is currently called the DD-214. I have a good general knowledge of the WWII and Korean Theatres of Operations. I can (usually) translate the military abbreviations on the form and provide some background on the soldier’s unit, its history and campaigns as well as providing additional reference sites for the user. I am a former US Army Infantry Officer on Active Duty during the Vietnam War.
