Grandpa Forrester was Special Forces in WWII – an Alamo Scout

On May 30, 2004, my grandfather, Charles Forrester wrote this about his time in the Army in WWII.  It is the last record I can find of his service, after contacting the government military records management office, it turns out they lost millions of records in a fire in the 70’s (paper records) and they all burned.  My grandpa’s was one of them.  My grandmother is still looking for other stuff from his military career, like discharge papers, etc.  I’ll post them if I find them.
