  2. I am looking to see if my grandfather was over seas when ww2 was going on his name was Harley f weber he was born in 1919 i beleave he was in the army

  3. I have a WW2 canteen cup which I purchased at a surplus store in 1949. Etched on it is the following: Blue, Richmond, VA, Camp Lee, Hood, White, Adair. Pat. Henry, Oran, Italy.
    Italy 1944-45
    I would like to return this item with the original canteen, holder ,and web belt, to the original owner or his relatives.

  4. Looking at some of the camp names, Camp Lee, Hood and then in particular Camp White and Camp Adair, and Camp Patrick Henry (which was an embarkation port) this soldier may have served in the 91st Division.

    The problem is there does not appear to be a soldier named (unless his name is Blue).
    Mr Blue could have been inducted at Richmond VA then went through a series of camps before going overseas, first to Oran then on to Italy.
