James Kilgallon WWII

James Kilgallon WWII

This is a photo of my grandfather during the WWII time frame. He had trained at Camp Reynolds, most likely Camp Carlisle also before shipping off to Europe late 1944. He had a painting done by PVT Roman Grill. Would like to find more about his history and the painter too. My grandfather might of been a medical aidmen then.

PVT Roman Grill

Roman Grill was my grandfather. He passed away January 1 1998.

He had been a commercial artist in St. Paul before being drafted in 1943 at age 34. He went through Signal Corps basic training at Camp Crowder near Neosho, MO and was then assigned to the 6th USAAF at Albrook Field, Panama C.Z. He worked on the staff of the 6th Air Force Magazine, Caribbean Breeze, until his discharge in 1946. After the war, he returned to the private sector and worked as an art director and creative director until his retirement.

I'm curious where your father and my grandfather may have met.
