Col. Paul Younts Papers

A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Paul Younts (1899-1971) was the longest serving commander (September 1944-March 1946) of the Army Air Force’s Overseas Replacement Depot (ORD) located in Greensboro during World War II.  During his tenure, the ORD processed over 100,000 men, separated from service 32,200 soldiers and reassigned 32,108 others.

This collection is rich in documentation that sheds light on how the ORD functioned as a military installation as well as how it interacted with the local community. Digitized items include statistical charts, a brief history of the ORD, and guides to processing, separating from service, and standard operating procedures. The bulk of the photos are of Younts or activities at the ORD.
