    Interesting Articles

    Yes, I too read this and was going to post it. Glad one of us got around to it. Well, what can you say. He got to be with his sons, and other WWII veterans, then see the Memorial and exchange talk with the group. Truly, what a wonderful way to leave this earth.

    1st Btn 358th Engineers

    It's very difficult to obtain info on one man within a unit. The best bet is to gather morning reports from NARA in St Louis, because this may give you some leads. You can also obtain unit records for the 358th from NARA in Maryland. Please see my instructions on how to obtain records here:

    I appreciate you posting both of those. The images are very moving, especially the footprints in the sand.

    174th Engineer Combat Battalion

    That's not to say that Dean won't see it in the future, if he's hunting on the web, but... you never know.

    174th Engineer Combat Battalion

    I don't know if you can reach Dean directly, because if you look again, it was a guestbook entry that SonofaMP copied to this post. Dean was never a member of this forum. And unfortunately, SonofaMP passed away a few years ago. Sorry to give you that bad news.

    That is very cool. Hope you will be happy as hell in your new job and of course your new soon-to-be home in Texas. But of course, that just means you are farther away from me, but I will try not to be selfish. ha! Guess these means I will just have to come on down, y'all and visit. Congrats!!!!!

    73rd CA (AA).

    Trying to find anything related to the 73rd... From what I can see, the two are NOT related... I found this on the 73rd Armored Field Artillery of the 9th Division. A father's battle experience unearthed Pictorial review Seventy-third Field Artillery Brigade, 1941 Excerpt from a book on Google

    73rd CA (AA).

    Hi: Below is some information on the unit for you. Sgt Albert Knauss You can check here to see if the Eisenhower Archives has info on this unit Historical Sketches Coast Artillery Regiments 1917-1950 Coast Artillery Journal The United States Coast Artillery Command on Aruba and Curaçao in World War II I am looking into more info, but if there is any connection, it would be divisional, not battalion. Back in a bit...

    Honoring the 291st

    Please send him my regards. I hope you get to meet him and get some pics. Please post if you do. Would love to honor him on our site!

    Honoring the 291st

    That is so cool. I too talked to the Colonel on a couple of occasions. He was such a gracious man. Before he hung up he said that he'd like to honor my father and was proud of his service with the 540th Engineers. I'll never forget that. He also signed books for me, which I proudly display in my library. What an honor to get to know him. Welcome the forum and thanks for all you do for our "boys"!!!
