“WWII Dutch Harbor Scrapbook”
After graduating from high school, on January 23, I enlisted in the army. I was inducted in the Army
on January 28, 1942 and sent to Indiana for basic training. Due to a minor leg injury near the end of
basic training, I was not permitted to ship out with my unit. I was held over on cadre as a drill
instructor to train the next group of recruits arriving for basic training. In May of 1942, I was
transferred to Camp Rainier in the State of Washington, and then to Fort Lewis, Washington where
I was assigned to the 58th Infantry Regiment. On June 19, 1942 we departed from Seattle on a
Liberty Ship for the Aleutian Islands.

stateside Sam was assigned to another infantry unit where he ended up serving in France, Belgium, and Germany. He was discharged from
the Army on November 1945. Sam acquired photos of Umnak, Attu, and a few from Dutch Harbor which he shared with us. This page
