Sgt. Glenzer Is German Prisoner Of
Staff Sgt. Ronald F. Glenzer, 28, of
Curtiss, who had been reported missing in action since November 13,
in France, is a war prisoner in Germany, according to a post-card
received from him recently, by his mother, Mrs. Emma Glenzer,
Sgt. Glenzer asked his mother not to
write to him as he would be moved within a few days. The card was
written Dec. 1. He added that he was in good health. The camp where
he was held is near Frankfurt, Germany. This was the only word
received by his mother that he was a prisoner.
The Curtiss soldier, who was in the
95th Infantry (Victory) Division, was inducted into the
Army in Milwaukee in July 1942. He was sent to Ft. Sheridan, Ill.,
and later received training at Camp Swift and Ft. Sam Houston,
Texas, Camp Polk, La., the desert training center in California,
Indiantown Gap, Pa., and in Virginia.
Sgt. Glenzer had been awarded the expert infantryman’s badge and a sharpshooter’s medal.
