Veteran Stories - Harold E. Kemper

Harold E. Kemper

I graduated from Geneva College in January 1943. In early February 1943 I was a soldier in the Army of U.S. after training at Fort Bragg, N.C. I was assigned to the 846 Ordnance Depot Company. The Dept. of Company served several months in the states preparing to go overseas. The company in May 1944 left the west coast to go to the South Pacific theater. The company served as a base depot for 21 months on four islands, these islands were Guadalcanal, New Caledonia, Peleliu, and Saipan. I was discharged in February 1946; serving over 3 years.

To sum it all up, the time in wartime army service was an experience you can never forget. In afterthought, the good times outweigh the bad times. Like many other men, I was no hero, had no combat records. However, you always know that when your country calls, you answered, and were part of a crusade that made our world a better place.

One dons his country's uniform with pride, and removes it with a little sadness. May it ever be this way."
