    Wonderful info. You've made a lot of people very happy.

    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

    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"!!!

    That's a nice thought. A giant repository of knowledge.

    Well, I know there were always drivers, but not specifically to do what you quoted.

    Looking for a place for my Grandpa

    This is beyond words. I am so grateful to you and so happy that you joined the forum and are able to share all the documentation and wonderful photographs. Yes, and I think you are right, his family might have to pick him off the floor. I know I'd need help recovering...

    What the major is up to now

    Your name in lights, er, well, in brick anyway. Looks great, and congrats once again.

    Info on 1017th Treadway Bridge Co

    Totally agree. Other than chatting back and forth, FB is a waste of time. Whereas with forums, everything is organized by subject matter and searching is a breeze. History does not hold up well on Facebook. I even tried having a 6th Corps page once, but it was a real pain and time wasted duplicating subject matter, so I discontinued it a long time ago.

    Info on 1017th Treadway Bridge Co

    Found this posted in our guest book. I've already written to her and told her to get in touch with the Army Corps Of Engineer's Office of History, first. Wrote to her again this morning, and told her I would also place her request here on the forum. It would be great if his buddy was still alive and we could re-unite them again after all this time. Here we go... If anyone has any information, please contact me and I will relay it to Jeannie and her father.

    Ah, I'm sure you can appreciate just how precious these are now. Being able to access these 50, 60, and 70 years later are like finding the crumbs for Hansel and Gretel.

    Looking for a place for my Grandpa

    I hope Slinky will see this, since his last post was made in 2012. I think you should contact him by private message too, because if his email is still the same, it will go directly to him. Fingers crossed.
  17. Marion' note: Unfortunately just a week later, I received this email... To read more about Ray - 922nd Field Artillery Bn - 97th Inf Div, please visit this link Farewell my friend. It was a real honor getting to know you.

    2827th Company C

    You could literally spend months perusing all the documents, memoirs, and gallery photos on the 36th. Here's one of my fave photos from a past reunion. We had reenactors come out, and had a convoy through town. What a blast!

    2827th Company C

    He was a 36th Engineer. You can read all about them on the main site. He is a 6th Corps Engineer, which this site is dedicated to. Please see their page, and then you can also read all the individual memoirs on the site too. Redesignation In February 1945, the 36th Engineer Combat Regiment was reorganized as the 36th Engineer Combat Group. Thus the following occurred: 1st Bn became the 2826th Bn 2nd Bn became the 2827th Bn 3rd Bn became the 2828th Bn We had our last Seahorse reunion in 2017. Sorry you had to miss them. They were a blast. Looks like I have a lot to share with you.

    That is wonderful news. I know everyone involved with the 292nd will be delighted to have this at their fingertips.

    Interesting Articles

    That is so sad. That's a lot of men, accounted for in WWII. Terrible for the families that are involved.

    Dear Gary, sorry for your loss. That was very sweet of you to look after the care of your grandmother. God bless her for living such a long life. I hope that most of it was very happy. Good to have you back. Talk with you again shortly when things settle to a simmer. Smiles, M1
