    Some one is selling their history book for a reasonable price:

    I will post when I get a chance to scan them. Right now I'm in the middle of chairing our (Alger Parks and Rec) biggest fundraiser of the year (July 27th), Music in the Park. And on top of that, am having Kai-Ann and her family, stay with us beginning on Monday through Friday, so have my hands full right now. But I am thrilled to add them to my growing collection.

    If someone is selling something that I'm interested in I always view their 'other items for sale' because you never know what else they might be selling that is related to what you just bought.  I'm glad to hear that you got them!

    Here it is!  By the way, they were in VI Corps, at least for a bit. 
     
    Thanks to the Shipe family for sharing this with us all.  Vaughn Shipe started out in H&S Company of the 284th ECB at Camp Breckinridge but must have transferred into the 1271st after basic training ended.

    I received this in the mail, literally these two pages.  I intend to call to see if I can borrow to scan the whole thing.  Anyway, here is a small roster of the 1271st ECB.

    I know the only (as far as I know) living soldier of the battalion, he has a speech by LTC Gottschalk that he was going to let me borrow.  Once I have a digital copy of it I'll be posting it to the 285th's website.

    I only see this topic now, I am in touch with a battlefield guide who lives not too far away from that area. I don't know if you have a Facebook account Mikel but try to get in touch with Doug Mitchell. He might be able to help you

    It is also a good possibility, this was the unit he shipped home with. This wasn't unusual, especially if he stayed in occupied Europe for a while.
     
    I wish that the separation papers showed this. It would save people a lot of headache if this were the case. I get this question a lot.
