Subject: [DELAWARE] 1st Delaware Infantry in World War 1
Date: Sun, 6 Oct 2002 15:34:50 EDT
HI! My grandfather, Joseph F. Bradley Jr. was in the National Guard in
Delaware and consequently was drafted and converted into the 59th Pioneer
Infantry which served in the American Expeditionary Force in France in 1918.
I have some few peices of paper with enough info to get that far. But i was
told his military record was destroyed in that big fire in the Records Center
in ST. Louis in 1973 (and why can't I remember that happening since I was 25
then?) . I am wondering if anyone knows what records the Delaware National
Guard might have and whether they are accessible to the public? I looked at
their website and got some general info. But I would think there should be
metals for my Granddad (which my mom never had) so to get them I need his
service files. If anyone knows, please email me.
If anyone is related...email me.
