Irwin Anger, 18th AAA, Pittsburgh

By Lowell Anger, April, 2018.

My Dad, Irwin Anger, served with the 18th AAA in Pittsburgh during the Korean conflict. I have some of his photos of him and his friends at the base. Unfortunately, my dad died in 1975 when I was 11 and I don’t know anything about his military career that I didn’t find on line.

I did remember two small facts he told me:

I also have his military ID, dog tags and GI Jewish Bible.

Here are most of the photos. I have no idea about the identity of the other soldiers. Looks like he is posed by the 90 in two of the photos.
