Claude joined the army when he was very young, perhaps not even 18 years old. He had completed the first two years of high school, got into some trouble, and the judge in Galveston gave him the choice of spending some time in jail, or joining the army. On the 1940 census, he was listed as being in the army and in New York. He was already in the service when WWII broke out. On December 28, 1942, he was serving in India. (Source: Houston Chronicle in article on his mother when she christening a ship). On May 15, 1944 he was in India. (Source: Back of photo he sent to his sister.) I remember him staying in touch with my mother, his sister, Mary Ann Hammonds, and that he sent her some lovely delicate jewelry from there. After the war, he got out of the service, but on March 1, 1946, rejoined, choosing the Air Corps this time. He was sent to Germany.

Military service

Claude joined the army when he was very young, perhaps not even 18 years old. He had completed the first two years of high school, got into some trouble, and the judge in Galveston gave him the choice of spending some time in jail, or joining the army. On the 1940 census, he was listed as being in the army and in New York. He was already in the service when WWII broke out. On December 28, 1942, he was serving in India. (Source: Houston Chronicle in article on his mother when she christening a ship). On May 15, 1944 he was in India. (Source: Back of photo he sent to his sister.) I remember him staying in touch with my mother, his sister, Mary Ann Hammonds, and that he sent her some lovely delicate jewelry from there. After the war, he got out of the service, but on March 1, 1946, rejoined, choosing the Air Corps this time. He was sent to Germany.
