    Hello Marion, no unfortunately the dog-tag had been found by a friend of mine .... Unfortunately it's been so long that I do not even remember who had found it! But I don't understand .... you had sent a letter and have received no response?
  6. Now it's my turn I bought this Army Reader, from a person here in Bologna where I live .... To my surprise I discovered that the booklet is partly compiled and translated in Italian! trying to find out information about the owner James Elmer Faison 34457613, I discovered he was enlisted at Ft. Bragg and that it was not lucky enough to be able to go home since he died in January 1945 KIA... I would like, if possible, to know something about this soldier, if he was a paratrooper etc. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Thanks CaptO, very exhaustive! I hope to find more information about him. I found out that his brother, Sergeant, is buried at Ft. Bragg cemetery.... Now this is still my main question .... only paratroopers were trained at Ft. Bragg or even artillery? Jean Jacobsen, I think every life is important and to be respected. I think that we exist only if we remain in the memories of someone .... Because sooner or later everyone will leave this earth, and only memories will demonstrate that we are indeed existed, for those who will stay here more of us....

    My pleasure I love this research, and I hope the relatives reply to the mail, so I'll be able to add more details to the story!

    Elmer James Faison 34457613

    ok so at this point ft. Bragg ?? not only the paratroopers were trained them? However a friend of mine was telling me about a similar incident happened at the 91st Inf. div. in an area that I know well. He will let me know if the date coincides!

    Elmer James Faison 34457613

    In fact very few.... do you think it is possible that he was in the artillery? The article talks about crew....

    As always thanks Marion .... I am informing the place of occurrence, as soon as I know I let you know! But I think he's back at home and I've only lost dog tag here in Italy....

    Elmer James Faison 34457613

    sifting through the book I found the page for letters and a test letter dated December 22, 1944 declares that the soldier was in Italy.... which would never go with the parachutist hypothesis.... on another page instead I found a clipping of an Italian aircraft , taken perhaps from a book....
  18. Enrico

    Elmer James Faison 34457613

    Thanx, I admit to being quite excited, because I did not think to find information on the soldier who had belonged, and instead even name and serial number, it was really good!

    Mhhhhh.... I believe that the search did not bring results right? Too bad, I would have loved to help Virgilio.... Thanks anyway!!
  24. Hi to all, I am just back from holiday. One August afternoon with a friend I had the honor of meeting an elderly gentleman, who was born in Bologna. During the Second World War he enlisted in the U.S. Army. Precisely in the 34th Infantry Division, 168th infantry regiment, 1st Battalion, C Company. His name is Virgilio Burzi. I've noticed that does not appear in NARA. In addition to stories really interesting, this gentleman showed me some pictures of his comrades that he no longer sees for many years. The last time he saw them at a gathering of veterans in the United States. Having been to all intents and purposes a soldier of the U.S. Army, after a period in occupied Berlin, he arrived in America for leave and decorations. Now I have a series of names, unfortunately I'm not sure of the correctness, because this gentleman remembered them in mind but did not have them written anywhere. He would be very happy to get back in touch with those still living. The only thing certain is that all were part of C Company. Gilbert Hermann Albert Guleo Radwick Zaickman Thanks to all for the help!
