Paper Proposal Robert M. Oglesbee (Oglesby) enlisted at the age of nineteen at Fort McClellan, Alabama
in 1943. Before the war he lived on Blakeley Island and worked as a clerk and laboratory
technician. After enlistment he enrolled in the Army Specialized Training Program engineering
course at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. At the age of nineteen he received aviation
training at Keesler Field and the Army Air Forces 30th College Training Detachment at Xavier
University Cincinnati, Ohio. He was killed in action on January 19, 1945. Oglesbee was buried
in plot D row 15 grave 51 at the Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Henri-Chapelle,
In order to get a full insight into the life of Robert M. Oglesbee I would like to research
his early years (elementary school, activities he was involved in), if possible his day to day life
as a soldier and events that occurred during his time as a soldier. I believe by knowing his early
years I will get a better perspective of what influenced him to enlist. His day to day life will
allow me to understand how his time was as a soldier. Did he enjoy being a soldier? How was he
treated? Did his view of the war shift during his time as a soldier? Events that occurred during
his time as a soldier are bound to give me insight into his position in the war. Why was he in
Belgium? What was happening in Belgium at this time?
