Seeking information in regard to my great uncle, John Henry West - his grave marker indicates that he was part of the 1301st Engineers - Company E. He was a sargeant at the time of his departure from military service. John never married, and surviving family members indicate he was a "changed man" after the war - he did not talk about what he experienced. I am going to piece together a brief history of his unit. I have requested records through the national archives center, altough I am told that his records may have been destroyed in the 1973 fire. Any information on the 1301st would be appreciated . . . Not finding a lot online.
