Hi Scott:

 

Let's see what everyone can come up with. I will give it my ol' American try too. I usually have SOME luck.

 

I'll get back with you whichever way it goes.

More coming your way, but here's a start:

 

1303rd Engineer Regiment

Mr. James McHugh

20804 Jefferson Road

Morley, MI 49336-9560

(616) 856-7071

 

Try him first!

 

The 1303rd was a general service engineer regiment.

 

You may want to call on my friend Max Schwartz who was with the 1306th, which was the sister regiment to the 1303rd. I will send you his address in private.

 

They fought side by side in Europe, then also went to the Philippines and Japan.
