Hi. I'm a PhD student in New York, working on a dissertation on demobilization at the end of WWII. I have notes on a couple of letters from members of the 1289th to Senator LaFollette in Wisconsin. This thread helped me to positively place elements of the 1289th in Manila, so I'm just writing to say thanks!

Received this email and some files a few months ago. Am posting today...


Hi Marion,

I googled 128th Combat Engineers. My dad TEC/5 Ervin J. Lochowicz was I a member of the 1289th Combat Engineers. I saw CombatGirl grandfather was in the same unit and looking for information. My dad has a 37 point diary on the moves the unit made.

My uncle Pfc. Eugene E. Lochowicz is MIA from WWII. He was in the 28th Infantry Regiment, 8th Infantry Division. I belong to the Yahoo group for the 8th and member of Fields of Honor. My uncle is posted in the Fields of Honor Database.
