"He was a 17-year-old German officer cadet from the 89th Mountain Regiment, brought over to the United States from Naples, Italy, in a very basic prisoner of war ship in 1944. He was sent first to Camp Forrest in the south and then to Gettysburg".

Dear Mr. Speer,

I am currently researching my family's history and I found out that my German grandfather was sent to camp Forrest before being transferred to Gettysburg, PA..

 Here is the article.. http://gettysburgintern.blogspot.com/2009/05/german-pow-recalls-gettysburg.html

I was wondering whether there are any records of him being there... anything at all...

I was also wondering whether you could give me any information on what he would have done at camp Forrest, daily routine, how long he may have stayed there etc..

Thank you very much
