NMAM: Elmer M. Eckman

I stumbled across a World War 2 POW Archive which includes several Eckmans. All were in the Army. I have no clue if any of these Eckmans are related (yet!) but I thought the source was interesting and being National Military Appreciation Month, I thought it was appropriate.

Elmer M. Eckman is from Pennsylvania. His record reads:
