    358th Engineers

    That is a tough thing to track down. Probably the only way to possibly obtain one, is to see if the 358th has a unit book. Other than that, it's not normal for the archived unit records to have photos of the soldiers.

    Hi, I wrote to the archives in St Louis and 8 weeks later have had a reply. I have manged to locate the Lieutenant! :) I couldn't be more pleased! They unfortunately, could not provide a photograph. Does anyone know how I would go about obtaining a military portrait? Many thanks.

    207th Engineer Combat Battalion

    Welcome to our forum. It's a real shame that the 207th's site is no longer available. I've seen that happen to too many WWII sites over the last 10 years or so. Think of all the valuable information that has gone missing now. Luckily most of the links including in the above post are still functional. Hope you downloaded the PDF files. I would suggest contacting NARA in Maryland to obtain the unit's files. There information is provided in the Research Section of this forum.

    207th Engineer Combat Battalion

    Hello all, I am looking for any information on my Grandfather Leonard (Bub) Wolfington., or the 207th Combat Engineers. He was in B. Company. I have found lots of great information on this site, but it seems that most of the links are broken. If any one has pictures, a copy of the map, or any information at all, I would greatly appreciate it. I have several pictures of my grandfather and several other guys. I will attempt to post them here. I can only make out a few of the names on the photo. O'Boyles, Campbell, and Carpenter. I hope these will help someone .

    358th Engineers

    Hi Everyone! I am undertaking some family research and was hoping someone might have some information regarding the 358th Engineers, and their movements throughout WWII? My grandmother was courting with a 1st Lieutenant, based in the US Army and together they had a daughter. The child was put up for adoption and the Lieutenant disappeared in the beginning of 1945. My grandmother went on to marry another man and have 4 more daughters. We are trying to trace the Lieutenant, and based on advice from this site (before i joined as a member), i have written to the Archives in St Louis, hoping they may be able to help me further. I was wondering whether anyone is able to help with the movements of the 358th Engineers, and shed some more light on their involvement in the war, where they were based, ANY information would be greatly received. I have also discovered someone who meets all the criteria, even name and rank, on findagrave.com, however don't want to get my hopes up on it being the same person until i hear back from the archiving place. (i sent a letter 2 weeks ago). If anyone has any questions, I will help as much as i can! Many thanks in advance to anyone with information. Roxie (28, Oxfordshire)

    Info on Julius G Wolfe - 149th Engineer

    Info on Julius G Wolfe - 149th Engineer

    Hello! I know that I'm late to the party here as this was originally posted back in 2013. But, I wanted to let you know that we are the family of Julius G. Wolfe. Julius (who went by Glen to all those who knew him) was my husband's great uncle. Thank you so much for the kindness and the respect you pay to Glen in adopting his grave at the cemetery. Glen was from Liberal MO and his family still speaks of him often to this day. He was well loved and the impact of his loss has never fully healed. I recently began searching for more information about what happened to Glen and his unit on D-Day. In my search I came across this posting and wanted to let you know how much it means to his family that you cared for his final resting place. Thank you for your care and respect, it is incredibly appreciated. Stormie
  14. Unfortunately, I don't personally have any other info at the present. I would strongly urge you to contact the Army Corps of Engineers in VA, or to contact NARA in Maryland, who have archived records on army units. Please see my post in the RESEARCH section. Keep me posted.

    247th USACE

    Very interesting. You are right that I have never seen a partially burned document from the fire (such a tragedy). It makes sense, I guess - the fire had to stop somewhere. It looks like maybe one side of a box caught fire and it was put out before it could consume the whole box. Wow, that's lucky for you! https://stevenwarran.blogspot.com/2014/07/fire-at-military-personnel-records.html
  16. Has anyone been able to find any further information on the 61st Engineer Combat Battalion. I am doing some research with my 98yr old grandfather who was in this Battalion (Company 'B ). Looking for any information that is available. All I have is the Combat log that somone previously posted. Thanks again.

    247th USACE

    My father, John A LaBoda was in the 247th Company B. He very rarely spoke about the war. He did mention the pillboxes, fighting in hedgerows and the time they poured gas down the ventilation shafts. It was interesting to read the same story on Faces Beyond The Graves. http://www.facesbeyondthegraves.com/pagina78.html Here is something you don't see often. This is his DD214 that barely survived the 1973 fire at The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC). This is the copy that they sent to me
  19. Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year!

    The Korean War Project - Is this Goodbye?

    It's a great, fun city. Getting around as someone who doesn't speak English is pretty easy. Do the DMZ tour - it's something you must see!
  23. Posted by Linda Cautaert on FB. Rest in Peace, my veteran friend John McAuliffe (6 Oct. 1923 - 9 Dec. 2019) John was one of our own. He will greatly missed. Spoke with him on the phone, last year. Was always good to hear from him. Rest in peace dear friend.'
