    Post mum's uncle - soldier ww2

    I try to find my mum's uncle. who serve America during ww2
    I dont know if he was in the Pacific or Europe during the war.
    he died in 1986, which is before my life time. so have not really heard so much about him.

    I will ask my grandparents tomorrow if they know something.

    The thins i know is:

    Name: Egil Baro and I think he was born March 28, 1923.

    have tried and search a bit myself but got no luck.

    Any tips on what i can do ? I live in Norway so will be difficult for me to come to America.

    Post more information when you can find it from your relatives and perhaps, someone here can help you trace your mother's uncle. Best of luck,

    If you know where he from, date if birth, name and where he enlisted you can find him on the national archive website. This will give you alot of info on his service. If you find out what unit, I can tell you what they did. Or clear picture of him in his dress uniform..... Be warned the archiv may not have recards on him because of the st. Luis fire that destoryed a lot of military recards. Sorry if the grammar horrible it late where I am. I will try to clear things up tomarrow if you need me to. Best of luck Franz

    I have spoken with my grandparents now and they said he was a Norwegian sailor doing the ww2. and he was on a boat during the invasion of normandie.

    some time after the ww2 he emigrated to America and was an American soldier in Korea

    Born in Norway
    28.03.1926

    Died in New York, Brooklyn
    24.03.1986

    When he came to US he changed his name to Egil S. Baro

    His Norwegian name is:
    Egil Bry
    Egil Simonsen

    I have try to get his records from korea but now luck yet.

    thanks for all your help so far.

    I have now talked with his family and they tryed to ask him about the war. but he would not talk about it to anyone.
    they thought he was sergeant in korea.
