George A Smith - 39th Combat Engineer
#1

Hi Marion,

 

Steve Cole aka.custerman steered me to your site. I have just started doing some research on my father, George A. Smith's, WW2 service. He was in the 39th Combat Engineers Company B, I believe. I have downloaded the article on your site about the landing of the 39th in Sicily as well as the articles by Stanley Dziuban. Dad put together a notebook of magazine, newspaper articles, postcards, some pictures and a few journal entries that I am plowing my way through. I was wondering if you had any other information on the 39th that might be interesting or helpful or perhaps any papers with his name.

 

Dad never talked much about his experience in the War and he passed away on Nov. 13, 2001 so unfortunately now that I have a bit of info I can't ask him any questions. I have his discharge papers that say he was discharged from the 350th Infantry Regiment but his notes all talk about the 39th. Steve thinks that perhaps he was transferred at the end of the War or something as the battles he was in are the same as the 39th.

 

Thank you,

 

Marlene Smith

Hi Marlene:

 

So nice to hear from you. Always great when I get a letter from a 36th, 39th or 540th member or family member.

 

I can put you in touch with other members of the 39th. They would love to hear from you.

 

Eventually I will have more info to share, as well as the complete history, but it will be a while. In the meantime, give these people a jingle and please let me know what transpires.

 

As far as the 350th Inf Reg, he very well could have been transferred over at the end of the war. This was not an uncommon occurrence in late 1945.
