Hello All! Thank you for approving my request. I am currently researching information on my father, PFC Robert Sandor who was in the 1280th Engineer Combat Battalion - Company C. My father met my mother in Linz, Austria, after World War II. They were married in the Dom in Linz on May 8, 1948. Four months before my mother passed away, I found her private journal she wrote when she was 13 years old while she was in the League of German Girls - specifically, Country Service Year Camp (Landjahr Lager). I wrote her biography "Through Innocent Eyes - The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth." I attend the WWII re-enactments in Florida and the D-Day Conneaut, Ohio event in August. So many readers are asking me to write a historical/fictional/love story about my dad's service in WWII and how he met my mom in Europe. Here is a picture of my mom, Gertrude and my dad, Robert, after WWII in Austria.
I am attaching the information about my dad Ervin J. Lochowicz. There is one PDF file titled John Howes information. Mr. Howe was also in the1289th. He wrote that the 1289th was assigned to the 15th Army and 23rd Corp.
Also I am attaching some information on my uncle Pfc. Eugene E. Lochowicz. Ken
