      My godfather was from Rumford, RI also known as Philipsdale. His father was a builder of homes and actually built the home they lived in for many years.

He and several others were shipped out right out of high school in their senior year, although they were allowed to graduate. He told me that he built bridges and planted bombs and whatever else was necessary. He still has a long list of places where he served (Germany, France, etc.) and a picture of one of the bridges that he built. He said one day headquarters called and said they needed a typist and he could type so suddenly he had an office job until the war ended.

My godfather was enlisted during World War II and on his tombstone it states TEC 4 US Army. I asked my godmother and she was not able to remember as she is in her 90's. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.
