Pvt 6 GP MTD MG TNG CEN
World War I
Jan 6, 1892 - Aug 30, 1953
The only thing I thought I had was "training center" at the end of line three. I turned to my retired Air Force father for help (thanks, Dad). Here's what he came up with:
"From my Army friends:
Pvt = Private
MTD = Motor Transport Corps Division
MG = Machine Gun
TNG CEN = Training Center
Don't know about the GP. It doesn't seem to fit but is related to the 6 which is for 6th Army. Could be general purpose."
Anyone else have a go-to resource for better understanding the abbreviations on military gravestones?
