• Tribute to Chester E REBER - Battery HQ & Sv / 680th GFAB

    (January 07, 1914 - November 28, 1966)

     

      

    I have recently acquired this interesting Paratrooper qualification badge ("Wings") engraved by its initial owner. This gentleman has made engrave a date "4/29/44, a serial number "39377485" and his name "Chester E Reber". With these info, I have identified this man as a member of the 680th GFAB.

    Son of Harry F REBER and Ella COOK, Chester E REBER was born on January 07, 1914 at Chehalis in Lewis County, Washington. He grows up and lived there when he was enlisted on March 24, 1941 at Tacoma, Washington. He received ASN 39377485.

    He married Lucille GRIEGER on October 12, 1941 at Seattle, King County, Washington and has had a son.

    Sergent REBER joined the 680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion at unknown date and was assigned to Battery HQ & Service. The date on the brevet is probably the date of obtaining his paratrooper qualification. Unfortunately, this man is not listed on the 1947 Don Pay roster and I haven't found other info on him. 

    He passed away on November 28, 1966 at the age of 52 years-old. He is buried at Cowlitz View Memorial Gardens, Kelso, Cowlitz County, Washington. 

     

     

    This "GI's Tribute" will be archived in the GI's Tribute - 680th GFAB.
