  1. Hi Marion, Thanks for uploading them. They look great. 24th Arm'd, Thanks for the comment. Glad you like them. Scott
  2. Hello, I have been trying to get info from NARA on my grandfathers records but still have not gotten anything yet. I have some photos of him in Germany and Belguim. Here are a couple of photos. In the first one, my grandfather is on the left. Hope you like. Scott
  3. Hello everybody, I have been researching my grandfather's military service history and found a history of the 1262nd ECB. I thought it would be appropriate to post it. Enjoy. Thanks. Scott 20120719122826465.pdf

    Marion, I just picked this up for $4 at Half Price Books. Just started reading. Very interesting reading so far.
  5. Help to ID a patch

    Hello Marion and Christoph, Thanks for checking. Patchman
  6. Hi Marion, Thanks for the links. I have seen several of them and they do contain a lot of good information. I am waiting on a package from the Eisenhower Library on the 1262nd. I have also sent a request to the Corps of Engineers to see if they have any data. My dad has some pictures of my grandfather from Germany he will be sending me. I will post them as soon as I can get them scanned. I am slowly getting some of the puzzle pieces into place. Thanks again for the help. Patchman
  7. Help to ID a patch

    Hello, I have some patches from my grandfather and I cannot id. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Patchman
  8. Hello everybody, I am researching my grandfather's WW2 history but I have very limited information. I do have his discharge papers and I know he was with the 1262nd CEB, Co B and was shipped to ETO on Oct. 29, 1944 and arrived on Nov. 9th, 1944. His unit was originally assigned to the 1st Army and later to Patton's 3rd Army. I have requested his military file from NARA and have some information coming on the 1262nd. I would like to know what he did in ETO and see any photos. Thank you in advance for your help. Patchman
