Abstract:

Arlie Charles Howe, a Monroe, Wis. native, discusses his World War II service in Iran with Company D, 788th Military Police Battalion, and post-war life in Wisconsin. Howe talks about his pre-war life focusing on the effect of the Great Depression on his family. He was drafted into service in 1942 and details basic training at Camp Swift (Texas) and the trip overseas on the USS West Point to the China-India-Burma Theater. Howe stayed briefly in Bombay (India) and mentions minor differences in operating procedures between United States and British forces and discusses at length his observations of the civilian culture in India. Stationed at Bandeshpur (Iran), he relates his duties as a military police officer such as providing security for local communication lines and establishing a presence to discourage Axis moves on Iranian oil fields. Howe touches upon the sporadic attacks his unit faced from German-financed "bandits." He describes work such as assembling C46 and C47 cargo aircraft. He touches upon his opinion of Russian soldiers, VE-Day in Iran, flight back to New York, and discharge. Howe talks about his post-war life filled with a variety of jobs including Sheriff of Green County, Wis., and mentions keeping in touch with individual acquaintances from his service days.
