  1. My grandfather, PFC Wendell W. Townsend, served with the 247th Combat Engineers and was in Company A. I have very little information because he passed away at the age of 47 & I was only 18 months old.  I have everything of his that he had from WWII, which includes a couple of maps, his DD-214, a Red Cross letter informing him of his mother’s death & a company roster. Does anyone on the forum have a family member who served with the 247th, Company A? I am currently in Germany for surgery and we are planning to drive to Jülich where the 247th completed bridge construction for crossing the Roer River. I’ve attached a few pictures (not great quality because I had the maps framed when my dad gave them to me).
