Question for '50s American servicemen.

My wife is not sure which airborne division her father was in. She knows it was disbanded before Vietnam, but has no other info (other than obviously it was neither the 101st nor the 82nd). He discarded his military gear after his honorable discharge (roughly 1958, if memory serves).

My late father-in-law did two tours of duty in the 1950s, and was stationed in Germany during this time. She says he reported dealing with the Danes on a regular basis. I'm a little puzzled by that one, as I thought northern Germany was British Army of the Rhine territory, and that our guys were in the central and southern FRG.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
