    49th Combat Engineers

    Wow it is a small world. I grew up in Gladwin and still have family there. My Dad was mayor pro-tem, and on the Gladwin City council for over 25 years. I have since moved to Livonia, MI but do get back "up North" when I can. Also I just attended the Thunder over Michigan air show where there were a few vets and met a new organization called Honnor Flight Michigan...don't know if you are familiar with them... www.honorflightmichigan.com

    49th Combat Engineers

    Hello All, New to the site and wanted to see if I could find any information in regards to the 49th Combat Engineers, which my father Hubert C Evans was a member of during WWII. I know very little other than a few stories and some pictures as my dad (as many others have found) preferred not to rehash the things they saw and did during the war. I wish to know what my dad really went through. if anyone knew him or had any stories or facts. Here is a brief bio of my Father. Evans, Hubert Carol (b. 1921 d. 1995) — also known as Hubert C. Evans — of Gladwin, Gladwin County, Mich. Born in Beaverton, Gladwin County, Mich., December 25, 1921. Served in the U.S. Army 1942-1945 during World War II; 49th Combat Engineers, candidate for Michigan state senate 28th District, 1961; candidate for delegate to Michigan state constitutional convention from 28th Senatorial District, 1961; candidate for U.S. Representative from Michigan 10th District, 1962, 1964, 1966.
