    Gary...I had stated earlier that the 253rd was probably the 253rd combat battalion that was part of the 9th army, which the 292nd was also a part of. Also could he have re-upped at the end of the war and been put with the 292nd which was building and supervising POW camps?

    Gary, Thanks for doing this teamwork has paid off on this one. I hope everyone can enjoy a version of this if they had been seeking this out. Warm wishes, Ken

    Welcome, I can most assuredly say that the photo Gary gave you is of Company A since my grandfather was never in H&S. I am taking my copy to him in the near future so he can get a high resolution of the photo and then he can share it.

    Here is some information I found about white uniforms for the Army. Army White Uniform[edit]One of the Army's Dress Uniforms, the Army White Uniform,[11] was the army's equivalent to the dress white uniform worn by officers in the U.S. Navy, but unlike the navy, which mandates the owning and wearing of the white uniform throughout the summer months (year round in tropical locations) by all ranks (E-1 to O-10), the Army white uniform was an optional uniform, and was only required to be purchased by officers and sergeants major assigned to posts in the tropics and the southern United States. The Army white service uniform was phased out in 2014. The Dress White uniform worn by General Sam S. Walker Introduced in 1902 as a summer undress uniform, its wearing, along with the dress and undress blue, was suspended during World War I and was reintroduced in its present form, along with the modern-day dress blue uniform, in 1938.[12] In its original (1902) form the white uniform included a standing collar and white flat braid trimming the coat edges.[13] The 1938 model substituted a white coat without braid and with an open-fronted peak lapel worn with a white shirt and black tie. With the impending hostilities of World War II, production of both the blue and white dress uniforms were suspended, but the Army white uniform itself served as a model for the Army winter service uniform, which was introduced in 1942 (replacing a belted version designed around the Sam Browne Belt) and discontinued in 1968. The shirt and trousers "class B" uniform was replaced with the Army green class "B" uniform in 1985. The post-war belt-less Army Blue Uniform, and the Army green uniform, had earlier replaced the World War II "Pinks & Greens" and pattern 1942 service coat or "Eisenhower jacket" uniforms in 1956. Like the Army green uniform, the Army white uniform featured a main jacket with four buttons, worn with matching white trousers and service cap, but unlike the Army green uniform, no unit patches, specialty tabs, or the black beret were worn. Officers wore their silver or gold-colored rank insignia pinned onto the shoulder epaulets, while enlisted personnel wore gold-on-white rank insignia and service stripes on both sleeves as that on the Army Blue Uniform. A white dress shirt and either a black bow tie or four-in-hand necktie, for formal and semi-formal functions, were worn.

    Hey everybody, Another new post. I was going through my grandfather's stuff and stumbled on something unique. I wish was complete but I only have half of a dollar bill with squad signatures on it. I scanned what I have for posterity sake.

    Ok, I had the owner of the company photo scan it to me. Unfortunately they don't have a large scanner so they had to spit the photo in two. I layered it and flattened the images the best I could. Any recommendations to send to some people who are not that tech savvy, but have the tech to do it... If any of you are better at photoshop and could get a better layered image let me know and I can post the two images on here.

    Ok, sorry for the repost but figured one more out from the good conduct list that Randy posted Robert Herzig is Herzie....He was not in the marching orders list for Company A, Randy if you possibly posted the rest we may be able to figure out a few more. Esp. Kosmari and Moran since I have them pin pointed in photos. Ken

    I was able to identify a few off the back off of the 1st squad photo. My grandfather is in the middle row in the center for frame of reference (Anton Pagoria). The others names I identified beyond nicknames or possibly after the marching orders document were: Ray Kollman Ralph Bateman Floyd Savill John Guthrie Maynard Toot Forrest Will Names I did not find were: Gardecki, Kosmari, Moran, Lawrence, Herzie, Schemehorn, and Santer.

    Randy, Is there any way to have this any more legible to read the lower right column. Was trying to see if I could identify any of the men in my photos with the marching party list. Thanks, Ken

    Gary, Are you able to cross reference any of the names I provided off photos to the company C photo? Ken

    The first photo may be him. I will print them out and take them to my grandmother and have her look. She knows better than most. I have not had the chance to arrange for the photo to be sent to me, but I will be and if we can't by then we will once I get it.
