Limited Duty Assignment in World War II
424th Infantry Regiment, 106th Infantry Division
Milton J. Schober, Tech 5

Schober graduated from Northwestern University in 1940, but was classified 4-F by his draft board, because of eyesight. He was drafted into "Limited Service" in December 1942 and spent his time as a typist after taking basic training.

In July 1944 Schober was sent to the 106th Division as an infantry replacement due to the fact that infantrymen from that Division had been sent overseas.

 Schober describes his administrative experiences, his lack of opportunity to go to O.C.S and his trip overseas with the 106th in late fall 1944.
