|Helene Hamm||Weldon Campbell military service|
Since Weldon C. Campbell registered for the draft in 1940, at age 23, I would presume that his military service as a Pvt. in the U. S. Army, (per his tombstone), was during WW II.
According to his military footstone, Philip Gregory served in the Army during WWII.
Luther Roberts also served in WWII. I found his draft card on Ancestry.com. (has "Disc 1/22/46" handwritten on top in different handwriting--his discharge date?) , but I don't know which branch. His brother Billy Ray served in the Army during the Korean War.
My grandmother's cousin, Parks Money, is buried at Shady Grove. According to what grandma told my daddy, Parks was on military leave (never told what branch) when he had his fatal car accident. He died five years prior to daddy's birth; however, and I have found nothing about his service. On his death certificate, his occupation is listed as farmer.
Good luck with your efforts and let me know if I can be of more assistance,

There is no indication on his death certificate that he served in a war zone. If so, his plaque would've identified it since it appears to be one furnished by the Department of Defense. I'm led to believe that his service time in the U.S. Army was during a time of peace.
