PFC Philip H Spindel information
Jul 16th, 2011, 2:35pm
 
I am looking for information about my uncle, PFC Philip H Spindel who was listed as being in the Philippine Scouts. He enlisted in May 1943 and was KIA in France 11/30/1944. I am trying to retrace his route from enlistment to his death where he awarded a Purple Heart. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

There could be an error in records. If he enlisted in 1943, that would have been after the Philippine Scout units had been surrendered to the Japanese in 1942. If he fought in France and was killed in action in 1944, he wouldn't have been able to transfer to the Pacific theater and assigned to the reconsitituted PS units after the Philippines was liberated in 1945.

Thanks for your help. I found out he was KIA on 11/30/44 in France. I guess the enrollment records regarding the Scouts was inaccurate.

Can you scan the relevant part of the records referring to the Scouts to me at pattj@cox.net?
