Camp Forrest during World War II

 
Message, Sat 1/13/2007
 
We moved to Winchester in early 1941 when my Father was stationed at Camp Forest as a Capt. I can remember being out with my Dad( I was five) on 12/7/1941. When we returned to the house there was a jeep at the house. A soldier saluted my Dad and they left in the jeep. That was the last I saw him until he returned in 1945.

The family stayed in Winchester until 1942 when all three kids came down with Polio. After that we returned to Atlanta where our family , including grand parents lived.
