World War II veteran, PFC, US Army Air Corps. Frank became a long-haul truck driver after the War. He settled in Butler, PA.
Frank was a member of the 573rd Signal Aircraft Warning Battalion (1944). It appears this was a Signal Corps unit (Radar) that came ashore shortly after D-Day and was eventually attached to 9th U.S. Army. The 573rd SAW Bn would have provided front line forward air control and early warning for the Army Air Forces fighters.
The 9th U.S. Army (GEN Simpson) was on the north flank at the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge and were transferred in operational control from Army Group XII (Bradley) to Army Group XXI (Montgomery) as the battle progressed. Frank reminisced how he had "driven a truck during the War and had to turn road signs around [to their correct orientation as German infiltrators in American uniforms had turned them to confuse American reinforcements] during the Battle of the Bulge."
