Kenneth Ingram turned 18 on April 19, 1946, and was drafted that same day. It was the start of a journey that would take him around the world, to Europe, to Asia and even near the North Pole.

Ingram served more than 20 years, performing many tasks in the aftermath of World War II and into the Korean War and the Vietnam War. After basic training in Camp Polk, La., his first job in the Army had him working as military police in occupied Wiesbaden Germany for about six weeks.

“Things were pretty well wound down,” said Ingram. “A lot of the buildings were still smoldering.”

However, he didn’t see much of Europe during his stay, as most of it was still in ruins at the time from the devastation of World War II.
