Good afternoon,

My name is Jordan Conaway. I am a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and am trying to obtain as much information as I possibly can on my grandfather, Roy Ackerman.

I have found some info on him through the Luxembourg Cemetery site. I have his service #, Unit he served with, his burial plot and his death date. I am trying to find out if there is any way to find out which company or platoon he served with. The reason he was crossing the road he got shot on in Sinz Germany and just really any information I can on him. If you think you would be able to help or know someone I could contact that would please get to me.

Thank you for your time, have an excellent day.

I am trying to learn about my dad’s service during World War II. My father never ever spoke of his service as I am sure as a young 18 years old it was very traumatic for him. His name was Pfc. William Charles Sanders and I do have his service records. He served in the 94th. I have the letter of commendation that was sent for the service and capture of the Trier. He served under Maj Gen Harry J. Malony and LT Gen Walton H Walker. I have some photos, post cards, and I do have a book on the 94th Division.

Is there a group that can be joined as a family member of a veteran where I might be able to learn more about this division and possibly my father?

I would appreciate any information that you might be able to send me. I one day hope to visit some of the places that my dad fought especially the site that resulted in the letter of commendation the soldiers received.

Also, I am planning a trip to Washington DC with my 12 year old grandson and would like to know what would enhance my understanding of this division….museums, memorials, etc.
Thank you so much for your assistance.

James P. LeBlochI am hoping you can help me in getting my dad honored for his 100th birthday.

My dad, James P. LeBloch, grew up in Chicago. He was in the Third Army, 94th Division, 302nd Infantry under General Patton. He was awarded four battle stars and a Purple Heart.

His 100th birthday is December 24, 2013, and I would like to celebrate it in a special way, although my dad is a very humble and proud veteran. He is still sharp and lives in an assisted living facility enjoying the daily activities.

I would think there are very few 100 or older veterans still around.

If you can help me or direct this e-mail to the proper people, I would appreciate it.

Thank you, Jim's daughter

maxwellI found some additional pictures to add to my post from April as well as more information regarding my grandfather, Sgt Hugh S. Maxwell from Alliance, Ohio.

Prior to arriving in Europe, he spent time at Camp Shanks and crossed the Atlantic on the Queen Elizabeth. He first stopped in Scotland, later England and then to Utah Beach. He was with the 94th Infantry Division at Lorient and St Nazaire. After the Battle of the Bulge started, he was pulled into Patton’s 3rd Army during which time he was sent to the Western Front. He crossed the Rhine into Dusseldorf and later after the war, Czechoslovakia.

He received four battle stars for Northern France, Central Europe, The Ardennes and Rhineland.

He survived but later passed away in 1970. I would be very interested to hear from anyone who may have known him.

Hi.  I just inherited my grandfather's WWII discharge papers.  He was a vehicle mechanic in the 94th infantry 302 regiment during the Ardennes campaign and was awarded 4 Bronze Stars according to his discharge papers.

He died in 1951, before I was born, and little information about his service has been passed on.  His service record was destroyed in a government records fire many years ago.

I am looking for any information I can find about his time in the 94th.  If your association has someone who might be able to help me, I would appreciate it.

I also have a half-dozen photos of him in the Army that look like they may be taken in Europe.  One of them has a jeep in it with easily readable unit markings.  I assume someone might be interested in these pictures, since there are other men in them besides my grandfather.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Riley HollowayMy father served in the 94th. His name was RILEY HOLLOWAY.
he passed in 1987. He never spoke much about his service but had terrible night mares about his experiences till the day he died. Could you help me with some information about his time in france and germany.
Respectfully Steven D Holloway.

I found some additional information that may help someone to remember him and give me some indication why he was so upset for so many years. He once told me that he was transported overseas to England aboard the Queen Mary which I understand was converted as a troop transport. He then was taken by train to a naval base where he boarded a naval vessel(name unknown) for the French coast.  

I have pictures of him and his unit in Paris. He also told me that he carried a tripod type machine gun and was in heavy action, in France and Germany. He told me that one of the reasons he had such nightmares was that he and his partner were running for a foxhole under heavy bombardment when he jumped into the hole with his gun only to turn over on his back and see his partner that carried the ammo for his machine gun, be blown apart by a mortar shell.

He also told me that he had the honor of seeing General Patton up close and personal when Patton passed through his checkpoint while he was on guard duty. I have pictures of him and his buddies in Nuremberg, standing outside of the building that the trials where held and a identification card with his picture that indicated that he was a guard in Nuremberg.

He swore that he never killed anyone during his time of service but it's my opinion that you can't carry such a deadly weapon and not hit anything. I have in my possession his bronze star, purple heart, and battle ribbons and a sharp shooters badge and a 94th patch that he wore on his uniform.

If anyone can fill in some of the blanks, I would greatly appreciate it as I would like to write a short story about his service for future generation of our family. Anyone can contact me at sdh40254@gmail.com or 407-622-9481. I will try to include a picture of my dad and his unit to make it easier for someone to recognize him.

My grandfather, Thomas Spencer Morie of Dandridge, TN, was a member of the 94th, 376th Regiment. He was Killed in Action(KIA) on February 20, 1945. He was survived by a wife (who never remarried and loved him until the day she died) and two children (including my father who was his spitting image and who died in 2001 at the age of 59).

If any of you served with him and could share any memories you have with me, it would be most appreciated. My email is angelia.nystrom@yahoo.com.

Subject: The 94 Club
Date: Sun, 28 Apr 2013

Whilst I am not a veteran of the 1944-45 European campaign my Dad is.

He was a lance fusilier in the Royal Welch Fusiliers 6th Battalion part of the 53rd Welsh Division.

They ended their war in Hamburg and just at a point when they were going in to clear the Nazi’s out the ceasefire was announced.

They then transferred to Düsseldorf where, bizarrely in the spring of 1946 he was seriously wounded in a live firing exercise. This put paid to his intended army career. He became an accountant.

He always recalls, ‘The 94 Club’ as a good watering hole and band venue.

He told me recently that the battalion insignia changed to ‘94’ when they arrived in Düsseldorf.

Is the use of the ‘94’ insignia and the fact that there was a ‘94 Club’ a coincidence or did the 6th Btn. RWF inherit that which the lads of your regiment set up and then left behind?

Are there any of your WW2 vets. that might have a memory of that era?

The reason that this has come up is because I am just putting on the road a restored 1943 BSA 500cc dispatch riders motorcycle and want to give Dad a surprise with the insignia etc. that I am putting on it and it would be good to include the ‘94’. What do you think?

Dear Sirs,

Jurgen LohbeckMy name is Jürgen Lohbeck, and I write you from Germany. I am a hobby historian concerning the history of my hometown Velbert (near Düsseldorf) and its immediate vincinity.

I am also a book author, last year I wrote a book which broaches the issue of a german decoy site at my hometown. This decoy site was installed 1941 – 1945 to deviate the allied bombers from the Krupp Factory at Essen.

Now a am working on my second book, which broaches the end of WWII at my hometown. Concerning this issue I would like to ask you the following question, may be you can help me ………. ?

The 94th Infantry Division took over the military administration (I hope this is the correct word ….) of Düsseldorf about the end of April 1945. This is a fact we know in our historiography.

What we do not know – but would like to know – are the names and numbers of the american military units which captured the Düsseldorf area and also the towns Velbert and Langenberg. This happened on 16th April, 1945, at the final stage of the Ruhr Pocket.

My belief is that someone of the 94th Infantry Division may know which units in the Düsseldorf area where replaced by the 94th Infantry Division at end of April 1945?

If I would know this, I would like to contact someone of them and to ask some details or maybe even to see some pictures. Also the official town archivist of Velbert is very interested in this issue.

I would appreciate your answer very much!

Thank you for the links to the pictures of the end of WWII. Thay are really smashing and some are very rare indeed!
But I was not so happy to see De Gaulle... I will never forget (or forgive) what he did with Algeria which was, after all, my homeland! We, the army consisting mainly of draftees, had won the rebels in the field, but he gave up to the murderers of the FLN, and there were thousands of killed and slaughtered citizens after the cease fire. But, of course, it is "our" history, and there is nothing to celebrate!

I told you, I think, that I had been pressed into service (and glad to be!) to find tracks of four American soldiers and their families, members too of the 94th USID. They had been assigned to an observation post, on the small island of HOUAT, off the coast of QUIBERON, from August 1944 to December 1944. On the 14th of December, they were attacked by a German commando aboard some armed fishing boats and a MT boat.

The quater master sergeant was wounded: his name: Orval L LOVE, and the three soldiers were captured by the Germans: Jesse JONES, Alfred WINKLER and Danny BROSMAN. These names were given by Harrry HELMS Junior in 1996.

The islanders and an association of QUIBERON would like to pay a tribute to these men, and do what we did in ETEL. So the are in need of knowing what happened to them after their capture, their unit, and the addresses of the families to ask for photographs that coul be used on a memorial plaque.
Is there anywhere where I can ask for help?
All the best!

PFC Seymour SchwartzMy current research project deals with my Uncle PFC Seymour Schwartz who was drafted out of his senior year pre-med at the City College of New York/CCNY and who trained at Camp McCain. He subsequently went overseas, I think in early August 1944, first to England, and later to France. He was a medic in the Patton's Third Army, 302nd/94th, as we discussed. I see that Lt. Col Judge's stamp can be found as one of the censors on several of his envelopes.

My Uncle was killed on February 9, 1945 in Germany when he went to save a wounded comrade and stepped on a mine. He received a Purple Heart and we have a personal letter of condolence signed by General George S. Patton. He also won a Silver Star.

I now have in my possession nearly 200 letters written by my uncle --from June 1944 to early February, 1945 --just days before he was killed. As I explained to you, I am a journalist and a book author (Boardwalk Stories, Illegal Living), and I am interested in writing a book about my uncle--contrasting the letters with their stories of catching and cooking chickens, window shopping in small towns, living in French Chateaus, poker playing and movie watching --with the real details of the war faced by the 94th. My working title for the book is: What War? World War 2 Letters Home.

I know that there is going to be a reunion of the 94th in New Orleans in June and I would be very grateful if you could help me post a note and/or get in contact with any survivors who might have known my uncle and also with any other soldiers and medics whose experience would prove interesting to include in the book. If need be, I will come down to New Orleans.

I am attaching a photo of my uncle, a very handsome young man who was a distinguished athlete and a fine scholar, too.

From: Ron Sindric

I had the honor to participate in the 94th Milwaukee Reunion years ago. My Father ( Simon Sindric E-302 ) was in the early stages of failing health. Not too long after that Reunion he passed away. I need help from those of you in E-302 who were close to him. I am writing a bit about Him, the 94th, and the Normandy landing. I need to know some details like:

which beach did He land on ( grid co-ordinates would be helpful )

what was the day and time of His landing

does anyone know what He was carrying

was He carrying a Garand or a BAR ( what kind of pack, gear, etc. )

was there a number on the LCVP He landed on

who did He come ashore with

what was the weather like

were the Men who landed with Him under fire when they came ashore

The answers to the above questions will be used for a piece I am writing. Thank you for all of your help with this,

p.s. If I can find them, I might have electronic copies of images taken during the 94th's Operations in 1944 -->
let me know if these could be of use to the Organization

My dad, George Pappas, was in the 94th Infantry. He was in the Army between December, 1942 and February, 1946. He was in Europe but I'm not sure exactly when. My dad passed away in September 15, 2009, never having spoken much about his time in the service. I'm hoping that someone can provide some history regarding my dad. He had an American Service Medal, an European African Middle Eastern Service Medal, a Good Conduct Medal, and a WWII Victory Medal.
