490th Armored Field Artillery Battalion Back to Member Photos
My Dad, Captain Hank Carey was intelligence officer for the 490th AFA and was one of the first officers to join the unit at Camp Polk.
"We stayed at Camp Dix while we took all of our shots, signed all kinds of documents and prepared to move from the middle of New Jersey to the New York waterfront. There were trips into New York to see the sights. I took three of the battalion officers home to Floral Park to see that they had a good meal. Nanna Kitty lived up to my expectations."
