  2. If any know where the 65th infantry division H co., 259th infantry regiment went please let me know. I am trying to find out where my grandfather went during the war

  3. Sorry the information I have is so vague. I am Looking for Relatives of a Veteran who was stationed in England during WW2. I only have a first name of Chuck (Charles) ? He would have been stationed in or near Winchester, Hampshire around 1944. His Family would be originally from Tennessee or Carolina.

    • If I’m not mistaken the 182nd Airborne and the 101st Airborne Divisions were in these area before jumping into Normany on June 6, 1944. You might do a search on these divisions. Sorry I can’t help anymore than this. Happy search.

  4. I’ve posted on here before, but I thought I would give it another shot. My great grandpa was in the navy from WWII through the Korean War. He was a shipfitter first class during his career. His name was Ralph Alvey Powell. His brother was Charles “Bud” Powell. Charles served in the army during WWII. My family didn’t have an opportunity to know Ralph very well and I, as his great granddaughter, would love to speak with someone who may have known him or his family.
    If you or a family member ever met him, I would love to speak with you.

  6. Hello,

    I am searching for any information on my great-uncle, William (Billy) E. Way, of Meriden Kansas. He served in the Army in WWII, in the 38th Infantry, Company B. He was killed on day 2, Dec 18th, 1944, Battle of the Bulge. I have his burial flag, Purple Heart and his service photos, but am trying to connect with someone, anyone, who may have served with him at that time. I appreciate it very much!

  7. I would like information on my grandfather. I know he enlisted and was in the Army. That is all I know. We would love to know more. His name is Richard William Rudolph born in 1908 in Los Angeles. We would love to know the unit and the base or bases he was stationed at. How do we grt all of his mlitary record?

  8. I have an Army New Testament that was presented to George D. Wolf (A.S.N. 38340029) possibly from Matador, Texas, with a nearest of kin listed as E.L. Wolf. If someone could provide me with more information on him I would appreciate it. I’m hoping to return this Bible to a family member or friend if possible.

  9. My grandfather is James S. Peck. He was a Seabee in WW2. He was on Okinawa at some point and I have 2 maps of Okinawa I would like to get more info on. Anyone have any suggestions?

  10. I would like to know more about my great-grandfather. His name is Ralph b Story he was a field medic in the 45th infantry division as well as a tech corporal. We went to dachau the day after it was liberated to care for the ill and dying. He was enlisted out of fort devens in March of 1944. He died sometime in 1988 and was born 1910. He never spoke about the war after he came home. After my grandmother died I cleaned out her house in hopes of finding anything of Ralph’s but his uniform, medals and rifle were nowhere to be found. The only thing I have of him is a black and white picture. I had done research myself but hit a dead end. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out.

    • The newspaper “The Winchester Massachusetts Star, for Friday, January 5, 1945 is in text form on the web at this link.
      https://archive.org/stream/WinStar_010545_033045/WinStar_1945_1_djvu.txt

      It has this story about halfway through:

      “Cpl. Ralph B. Story of 70 Middlesex Street, U. S. Army Medical Corps,
      is listed among the members of the staff of the 116th Evacuation Hos-
      pital, one of the youngest medical installations supporting combat units
      of the 6th Army Group.”

      “Landing in France in November, 1944, it commenced to function Nov.
      30 and received 3900 patients in its first 44 days. ”

      The 116th Evacuation Hospital was one of the units that was at Dachau, arriving a couple of days after the 45th Division. If you search on the web for the 116th Evacuation Hospital, you can find several stories about the unit at Dachau.

      Ralph B Story was born on 22 January, 1910 and died 20 January, 1988. He is buried the Bay Pines National Cemetery in Florida and can be found on findagrave dot com.

      • Thank you so much. I had been doing research for months but hit a dead end. Thank you

  11. I am looking for information about my grandfather; Walter G. Boyer Sr born 1919 in Jedo, PA (near Hazleton.) I am left with very few relatives to ask, but I remember the bridge at Remagen being a part of his story. I would greatly appreciate it. He gave me a purple heart when i was very young.
