Uncle Buster as I often heard him called served in General Patton's (Old Blood & Guts) 3rd Army in Europe.That was according to my mother Pearl Gregerson Ullyot. Uncle told me once that he got leave to come home on R&R near the war's end and then went back to Europe before hostilies ended. I also remember the maroon Mecury automobile he drove and only heard about his Cadillac he drove in later years. I always enjoyed visiting with Kennedy and will miss him. Ike Ullyot Prescott, AZ
