He was a native of Highfield, the son of Robert E. and Bessie (Flohr) Eyler. He had lived his entire life in the Highfield area until drafted for military service.

He took his basic training at Fort George G. Meade and then trained at Ft. Belvoir, Camp Lee and Camp Pickett, Va.

He left the United States in September, 1942. He served with the 147th Quartermasters Truck Company and was with that outfit until January 15, 1945, when he was transferred to the infantry.
