Comments: Looking for anyone who may have known my dad. I am unsure of the years he served. I do know that he may have been a gunner. I know that a shell exploded near his position and he was hit by shrapnel in his chest area. He did receive the Purple Heart Award, among others. He was a lanky African American man, from Syracuse, NY who lived in a Buffalo, NY for some time afterward. Dad enjoyed jazz music, and sang for local groups in the Syracuse and Buffalo areas, where he went by the nickname Wiggie. When I was a kid, he didn't talk much about the war, and whenever I asked him to tell me a war story, what I was told never matched what I saw on tv or in the movies-I found out why he didn't years later from my mom as a teenager who was struggling to under his father who more and more frequently experience ed flashbacks/episodes that started out taking him away from us days and weeks at a time to finally months at a time. He suffered a massive heart during his last episode and passed away on November 26, 1986-the day before Thanksgiving of that year. I would appreciate any feedback that anyone may have.
Thank you in advanced.

Unit: 550TH AAA GUN BATTALION OR 82ND RECON BATTALION

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: The men in my family are long-lived, but my father was suddenly
mowed down by a then mysterious illness.Medical tests revealed
that it was a glioblastoma, a particularly virulent brain
tumor.He was dead in four months. I believe that this was a
direct result of his being present at Operation Ranger.


Keywords: I am interested in finding out all I can about Operation
Ranger, a series of nuclear bomb tests that took place in the
Nevada desert in 1951.I wish to prove that my father, sergeant
Udell B. Fears, RA 13 338 848 was present at these tests. I
know he was in the army from 1949 to 1954 and that he was in
Headquarters Company of the 550th AAA Gun Battalion but I don't
know the exact dates.I believe that the 82nd Recon Battalion
was at the bomb tests,but I don't know if my father was in that
unit.I believe that both of these units were components of the
Second Armored Division of which my father was a member.During
the Korean War era my father was also stationed at Fort Knox,
Kentucky and Fort Hood, Texas. He often spoke of being present
at some kind of bomb test, describing how during the aftershock
of the blast, rocks, dirt and even sheep both living and dead
were flung though the air like leaves in a hurricane.My father
went by te nickname, Bob. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
