Edward Francis Dennehy, Jr. Edward F. Dennehy Jr. was born on June 20, 1917 at Talty, Texas. During his childhood, he was ill with asthma a great deal of the time and lost many days of elementary schooling. Also, during his childhood he had an accident that damaged the cornea in one eye. A valuable lesson to be learned due to the fact that the accident occurred while playing with a sling shot. This lack of vision did not prevent him from serving with the United States Army during World War II. During the war, he participated in the Northern France, Rhineland, and Central European campaigns. He once told me that he had crossed over into Germany offer the Remagan Bridge which was captured by the U.S. First Army, the bridge was later bombed by the German troops and collapsed. He was a signal corps motor messenger stationed at Luxembourg during the Battle of the Bulge. Edward's brother, Bill Dennehy and he had met each other briefly while the two happened to be stationed in the same town in Belgium. Bill Dennehy told me that Edward knew the location of all the different units in the area since they had to hand carry some commands that were printed and sensitive to detection by radio or telephone communications. Luxembourg was the location of a communications center and also the location of the headquarters of the commander of the First Army, General Omar Bradley. Edward's army serial number was 38 222 407, he was a Staff Sergeant with the 3137th Motor Messenger Co. For his military service, he received the European-Africa-Middle Eastern campaign medal with three bronze stars. The medal and the stars together signify that he had participated in four battles which his unit had taken a recognized part. The war, oddly enough, did his health a great deal of good in that he came through without serious mishap and was healthy enough to later became a carpenter. He was a life-long member of The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America local union chapter 198 of Dallas, Texas and was intitated into that union on February 23, 1948. After working as a carpenter for most of his life, he had a construction accident on December 26, 1969. The accident, which shattered his left ankle and leg left him disabled for the remainder of his life. On October 6, 1976, he died of a heart attack at his home. He is remembered by his son's as a gentle father and friend.
