    If you do some "googling" on the 285th his photo does show up so that might be where you've seen it!

    I just came across this photo of William Leunig from the 285th and I thought that I'd post it here for your records.

    Hi! I'm delighted to report that I just got back from the 284th's reunion and it was wonderful. We had a few surprise vistors and a lot of good food and conversation. I also learned a lot of new details and received a lot of new photos so I will be updating the book appropriately in the future!

    There are several links on this site. Just type in "360th" in the search box on the top right of the forum home screen.
     
    Oh got this today. They are photos supplied by a new member.

    Oh that is so cool. I did the same thing with my documentary. I gave a free copy to all my WWII engineers.

    Hi Jean,
     
    Thank you so much for your kind words and for purchasing the book! It means a lot to know that their history is available and that people are really interested in it!
     
    Their reunion is only a few weeks away so I'm excited to bring them all copies of it.

    Thank you for posting the link about the book that I put together with the help of the veterans of the 284th Engr. C. Bn. It starts at basic training and goes all the way through the end of the war. It is full of photos, maps, official reports and personal accounts. The guys left most of the combat details out of it though, those details were things they wanted to leave in the past. There is also a paperback version available as well:

    I always check ebay for 284th "stuff" and I see that someone is selling a bunch of 250th photos. Some are named, some are not but I thought that I'd mention it just in case anyone is interested!

    James V. Stowell Jr. shows as entering service from Monroe, NY and I see he lived in Elmira for a while. Those are places to start looking for him or his family.

    Greetings from Luxembourg! I was given a whole packet of information about the 285th today! I need to scan it but I will post it as soon as I can once I return to the US! I also visited the grave of John W. Daspit. He is buried very close to General Patton!
     
    Talk soon.

    These are great! Thank you so much for sharing and you will really make someone's day when they start researching the unit and stumble across these! Too many great photos are stuck in boxes in attics somewhere.
