A Tribute To My Dad
WARREN WEIDENBURNER
April 16, 1921 - July 20, 1994

United States Army Veteran of the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II

 U.S. Army Service Ribbons
 Sgt. Warren Weidenburner, USA

   My Dad never talked much about his years of service in CBI (to me or to anyone) and I never pressed much to hear about them. Unfortunately he passed ten years before I began work on these pages. As a result, as I compiled these pages as a tribute to him, I had mostly only images to tell the story. The images do however tell a story. The story is not of a soldier, but of a working man who happened to spend three years of his life working for the U.S. Army.

  Dad was a Sergeant stationed at Headquarters Company, Advance Section 3 in Ledo, Assam, India from 1943 to 1945. The mission was to supply the Ledo Road Engineers and Mars Task Force by air. Dad worked in the office of an air supply warehouse where supplies were prepared for air drop to Ledo Road engineers and combat troops operating in forward areas.

   Dad went to India in 1943 as part of the "4201 Shipment" of Quartermaster, Engineer, Ordnance and Medical personnel for the Ledo Road project. That project was part of the larger U.S. Army Services of Supply effort to keep China supplied and in the war against Japan. More about his time in CBI remains to be discovered... Embark Here
