PFC Lester Eugene (Gene) Hyman

596th PCEC


Please find attached pictures of my father PFC Lester Eugene (Gene) Hyman.  He is from Logansport, IN.  I would like you to post them to the web site in honor of his service.  I have always been interested in my Dad's military service and some of the stories that he told me.  I am currently working on putting together a shadow box of his military memorabilia.  Dad died back in August of 2000.  since then I have cared for his military items and pictures.  Just recently i discovered this website and want to contribute any information I can.

I am hoping that there are still several men alive from the 596th that remember him and are welcomed to email me about Dad.  It would be an honor to hear from them
