    What is written right next to and under his promotion to obergefreiter?
    It says "Lt. Abt. Bef. [= Laut Abteilungsbefehl] # 114 vom 10.07.42" = "According to battalion order # 114 of 10 July 42".

    Abteilung [lit. "detachment"] was the designation for a battalion-sized formation in certain branches, including armor and artillery.

    Also, what's with the date for his promotion to stabsgefreiter? Does that look like June of 1945 to you guys? Obviously that wouldn't make sense...
    Sure looks like "17.6.45" to me....

    Pretty much the only thing I can make out with this page is that he was a radioman, and something about a truppfuehrer...
    He was qualified as a:

    "Fernsprecher im kleinen Fe. [= Fernsprech] Trupp
    F.spr.
    [= Fernsprecher] in einem F.F. [= Feldfern-] Kabelbautrupp u. [= und] F.D.[= Fernsprechdienst]-Trupp
    stellv. [= stellvertretender] Truppführer"

    ...i.e.:

    "Telephone operator with a 'small' telephone team
    Telephone operator with a wire-laying team and a telephone team
    deputy team leader"

    Depending on context, Trupp can be translated as section, squad or team. I must admit I am not certain which one is the correct tech term here.

    I can read that he was issued a gas mask and a K98, but I can't make out the bottom part.
    Basically, what Glenn said.

    People's-something-school? Also can't make out most of section 13. The surname is 'Weixler', if that helps.
    The school was a Volksgewerbeschule, as Glenn said.

    Section 13 says:

    "Gertrud Weixler
    Ehefrau
    Göffingen
    /[...]
    [...]

    ...i.e.:

    "Gertrud Wexler
    wife
    Göffingen
    /[...]
    [...]"

    Sorry, can't quite make out the full address.

    I understand everything here except for section 7 and the mother's surname in section 9.
    "verh. [= verheiratet] 24.10.31", i.e. "married 24 Oct. 31" and "Kleng". What Glenn said.

    Quote by ObKrieger View Post
    I can't really understand this...
    Once again, what Glenn said: Standard security lecture. A very common entry.

    Quote by ObKrieger View Post
    I can make out the EKII, Ostmedaille, and dates, but nothing in the third column.
    "Ob.[= Ober-]Befehlshaber der 2. Pz.[= Panzer-]Armee" = "commander-in-chief of the 2nd Panzer Army"
    and
    "Pz.[= Panzer-] Nachr.[= Nachrichten-] Rgt. [= Regiment] 2, Abt. [= Abteilung] IIa [...] 29" = "Panzer Signals Regiment 2, Battalion IIa [...] 29"
