I am undertaking some family research and was hoping someone might have some information regarding the 358th Engineers, and their movements throughout WWII?
My grandmother was courting with a 1st Lieutenant, based in the US Army and together they had a daughter. The child was put up for adoption and the Lieutenant disappeared in the beginning of 1945. My grandmother went on to marry another man and have 4 more daughters.
We are trying to trace the Lieutenant, and based on advice from this site (before i joined as a member), i have written to the Archives in St Louis, hoping they may be able to help me further.
I was wondering whether anyone is able to help with the movements of the 358th Engineers, and shed some more light on their involvement in the war, where they were based, ANY information would be greatly received.
I have also discovered someone who meets all the criteria, even name and rank, on findagrave.com, however don't want to get my hopes up on it being the same person until i hear back from the archiving place. (i sent a letter 2 weeks ago).
If anyone has any questions, I will help as much as i can!
Many thanks in advance to anyone with information.

Welcome Stormie. It's so satisfying to see this post come full circle. That's what I love about this forum. It's wonderful to see people from all over the world, coming together and reconnecting the dots. Much love to you and your family. Marion
I know that I'm late to the party here as this was originally posted back in 2013. But, I wanted to let you know that we are the family of Julius G. Wolfe. Julius (who went by Glen to all those who knew him) was my husband's great uncle. Thank you so much for the kindness and the respect you pay to Glen in adopting his grave at the cemetery. Glen was from Liberal MO and his family still speaks of him often to this day. He was well loved and the impact of his loss has never fully healed. I recently began searching for more information about what happened to Glen and his unit on D-Day. In my search I came across this posting and wanted to let you know how much it means to his family that you cared for his final resting place.
Thank you for your care and respect, it is incredibly appreciated.
