Kenneth Seibert in WW II, Anti Aircraft Artillery

Photo Details

My Grandfather, Kenneth Seibert, sitting in front, served in the 581st AAA Automatic Weapons Battalion. He served in the European Theatre. He left 24 DEC 1944 and returned home 04 APR 1946. He did not list the location of this photo but I would assume it is near the Rhineland.

P. Di Giacomo The photo was taken at Remagen. You can see one of the towers of the Ludendorff bridge in the background. The bridge collapsed on March 17, 1945.

My father was in the 581st, and he took many pictures of the bridge, before and after it collapsed.

The 581st arrived at Remagen several days after the bridge was captured. I do not know the exact date. They were in place when the bridge collapsed. From the photos my dad took, they were on the east side of the Rhine.

Some of his photos are marked (on the rear) who is in the pictures.

The names are as follows:
