I'm looking for any information about Dale Arlo Wiltfang who was born March 2 1929 in Mansfield SD to Ellen Nelson Wiltfang and Walter T Wiltfang. He also had a brother Daryl and a sister Dorrain.

Dale was stationed in Bainbridge(need name of camp ) and I'm wondering if his unit(what was it?)ever served time in Korea itself.?

Dale was married to Anne C Fossum. He died at his home in SD Nov 4 1984.
He was survived by his mother Ellen Nelson Wiltfang
1 son Jefferey D Wiltfang of Topeka Kansas
3 daughters Beck(charles) Karin of Topekas Kansas
Mrs(Wendy)Diamond Dietrich of St Louis MO.
Mrs (Lori)Guillermo Meja of San Luis Potosi Mexico.
Predeceased by fater Walter T Wiltfang

Here its primary Dales's service record and any information regarding it(unit, rank, time, discharge status etc)
I'm interested in, but if any can be found about his wife Anne C Fossum(her parents-sibblings etc) or his children(above) I'd appreciate that as well.

I know his mother Ellen Nelson Wiltfang was born in Norway in 1906, had two older brothers Samuel 1901, Harold 1904(married Gertrude Voss) and family immigrated from Sandar Vestfold Norway in 1909, In SD Nanna 1912, Norma 1914 and Jennie 1916 were 3 additional children of Ned(Fred)Nelson and his wife Hesina(Knudsen)Nelson
Harold married Gertrude of course in US.

Thank you
