    My name is Valentino Rossetti and I am the webmaster of the site dalvolturnoacassino.it . I have collaborated with Marion J. Chard in relation to the 1108th presence in Italy. I am conducting a research about a unit of German self-propelled guns that fought at Monte Porchia in the days between 3 and 8 January 1944 (just the days when the 48th companies were called to operate as infantry to give help to the conquest of this position). The German unit was named (in German) 2.Batterie SturmGeschutz Abteilung 242 and was equipped with 75 mm guns. There are some photographs that show some of these S.P. guns, hit or broken, taken January 9, 1944. The shooting location is generally referred to as "San Vittore area" but it is almost certain that it is near Monte Porchia (also included in the San Vittore area). Photo list: monte-porchia. Do you have any informations / photos that help me to identify the location of this unit in those days? Greetings and thanks for the help you can give me. Valentino

    Hello, I just joined today. I've been looking for information about the 351st engineers. My great-uncle was a member of the unit and information about him and this unit has been hard to find. I've lucked out so far discovering that this was his unit and I also found his serial number. His name was Earl Arnold and I believe he held the rank of Corporal. Any help would be great appreciated. I've included his picture in case anyone may have unit photos. Thanks!!!

    Hello, I am Leslie Krogh Feuerborn. My father, Ray Krogh, served in the 210th Military Police Company as a Private in WWII. He died when he was just 38 years old in a mountain climbing accident so our family wasn't able to find out any direct information about his experience in the war. Fortunately, his parents kept some of the letters that he sent home which has allowed us some insight into his experience. The 210th MP Company is not easy to find much information about so I'm hoping this site will help me out. He also served with Corporal Leslie E Haughs who died on December 25, 1944 and is buried at Henri-Chapelle Cemetery in Li├Ęge, Belgium. My dad thought so highly of Cpl Haughs that I was named after him (although I am female). I look forward to connecting with others through this site. Leslie

    Greetings Leslie, You are the first person with a family connection to the 210th that I've been able to connect with. Very happy that you posted. I have been collecting information on the Company for a while with the goal of assembling a simple book to follow my grandfather's time in the 210th. I'll assembly a summary and forward you a collection of documents in a couple of days. -Brice Freeman
