    283rd Engineer Combat Battalion (Grandson)

    Excellent. I have put a lot of people together since 2004, including veterans with their old buddies. This has been a very rewarding project and labor of love. I have been repaid over and over with the results.

    1264th Engineer Combat Battalion

    I'm actually a writer, editor and publisher. I've written some magazine articles for WWII magazines and such, and also published a tween trilogy in the past few years. Story of Q Here's a page that features my articles As far as storytelling is concerned, it's one of the reasons this website exists. If you check out all the memoirs on the main site, you will see how many stories have been shared with me over the last decade or so.

    36th Engineers Company H, Uncle KIA

    I can put you in touch with John. He has good and bad days, but I have spoken with him on the phone a few times within the last few months. I will send you a private message with his email address. Oh and I can understand your frustration. WE ALL wish we could have started researching years before we had. Sigh!

    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:

    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.
