Hi, I read article about Dieter Dengler and I'm wondering, how many Germans served in US military after WW II ?

Hans Welzel is an unusual one. He was a US citizen whose family moved to Germany when he was a child.

He joined the Hitler Youth and fought with the Wehrmacht in Italy until being captured in 1943.

He then fought in the Korean War as a US serviceman.
