  1. My Grandfather is Sydney Reid Purvis. He served with the 344th Engineer GS during WW2. I have pictures of him with Master Sergeant stripes and a medal citation with his rank being a 2nd LT. I know he served in the H&S Company as an LT but do not know what his previous Company might have been. I would love to find some pictures or info about his service so I can give to my Daddy and Uncles. I am assuming he was with the 344th from the beginning because I have a picture of him in Scotland. I have been reading this website for a week and am astounded at the information. The funniest part is they all told me he was in D day. That seems to be a common theme. Operation Dragoon, talk about getting looked over in the history books. Also, I saw where there is a book called “The 344th has Traveled,” or something similar. Where can I buy a copy of that or at least download. I look forward to hearing from you all. Todd Purvis H-Minus
