China Marines

China Marines

Attached you will find two photo’s of my father while stationed in Shanghi, China, sometime in the late 1940’s (46-49). He is the 3rd from the left in the first photo and the 2nd from the left in the second photo. His name was William B. Howell, but may have gone by Billy O. Howell. Although from Shafter, Texas, he enlisted while in Indianapolis, Indiana, after serving in the North Atlantic during WWII (1943-45) while at the age of 15. I am trying to locate anyone that may have know him while in China. I am hoping that you will be able to post these photos in my quest to find his buddies!!

William G. Howell
