Subject: Re: Bob Hope - Your smile for today
When I was transferred from Co. B 376 Inf. to Division MP platoon at Vimperk, I was sent with the Jeep to the grass strip landing field to pick up a couple of "entertainers" and shepherd them for the day.
Big surprise. I had Bob Hope and Jerry Colonna for the day and delivered them first to the Officers Club and after the performance, picked the well lubricated couple to return them to their Artillery spotter plane late in the day.

I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART.

Subject: Charles Remsing 94/SIG
Date: Tue, 11 Jun 2019
My name is Melanie Crewse. I am a French native now living in the US and I have been trying to help a family friend locate an American soldier who was in France during WWII in her town, Chateaubriant.
His name was Charles Remsing. After doing some research, I found a Charles Remsing that was part of the 94th Division that went to that area. His Army serial number was apparently 06853627.
He would have passed in 1989 but I was hoping I could get more information about him to see if he is the Charles Remsing we have been looking for. Do you have a way to help me and maybe tell me who to contact? Thank you for any help you can provide

Subject: Edward Hans Haggen of Lovell Wyoming
My name is Mark Smith. My grandfather, Edward Hans Haggen of Lovell Wyoming, served in the 94th division during WW2 from April of 1945 - October of 1945.
I am looking for additional information on him and his military service for genealogical purposes.
These could include photos, documents, stories, etc. Unfortunately, he has dementia and is losing memories of the war. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
Greetings! Uncle Sam wants YOU!!!
Your dad or mom/loved one/friend is about to travel to New Orleans to see their WWII Museum
through the Gary Sinise Foundation’s Soaring Valor program. Our desire is to honor these brave men and women for their sacrifices in the cause of American freedom.
This is an all-expenses-paid journey of commemoration, reminiscence, and reflection. Those veterans who have traveled with us were so grateful for the honor and care shown them. One of the veterans said, “I didn’t think anyone even cared about us any more.” This is our way of saying thank you and yes, we do care about “The Greatest Generation”!
The Gary Sinise Foundation has a “secret,” which is where you can help. The “secret” part of our journey is what happens on the flight home. After our three-day journey of camaraderie and reminiscence, these veterans “think” their journey is over. Tired, but fulfilled, they nod off to a well-deserved sleep. But, much as it was in wartime, their day is not over. Waiting for them, on the flight home, is a reward: “Mail Call!” the same kind of mail call that kept their spirits alive during the war.
HERE IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP-----FIRST OF ALL KEEP THIS A SECRET
As the primary contact for this veteran, you know the important people in your loved one’s life. Please contact any and every one of them and ask them to write a letter or card of thanks for serving this country.
Relatives? Naturally. Friends? Of course. Work colleagues? Definitely. Social contacts? As many as you can contact. Please have letters and cards sent to the address below by April 19th.

I'm a co-worker of the site http://www.fieldsofhonor-database.com, a non-profit organization.
On this website we try to collect information about the fallen American soldiers, who are buried or listed on the Walls and Tablets of Missing at the overseas American War Cemeteries Ardennes, Henri-Chapelle, Margraten, Luxemburg, Epinal and Lorraine. With this database we want to keep the memories alive to the soldiers, who gave their lives for our freedom. Because beyond every cross, there is a soldier buried who has got his own story.
Luxemburg, Epinal and Lorraine (coming soon)
As you can see, we try to add as much information and pictures as we can.
This is why I would like to take the freedom to ask your permission to use the information and the pictures on your website or Facebook page to complete our database.
If we may use the information we will refer a link to the website
May I also congratulate you with your fantastic website.

The Fields of Honor - Database honors over 48,000 U.S. World War II soldiers buried in and memorialized at the American War Cemeteries Ardennes, Epinal, Henri-Chapelle, Lorraine, Luxembourg and Margraten.

Subject: William E. Tracy A/302
Date: Wed, 20 Feb 2019
My name is Kathleen Ulmer (maiden name Kathleen Tracy), who is the daughter of William E. Tracy who was in the 94th Infantry division and injured around the time of the Battle of the Bulge and received a purple heart and also received a bronze star, which we never knew what it was for.
I noticed the list of infantry men and the dates they were deceased, so thought I would email and let you know that my father, William E. Tracy, passed away on 3/21/1991, at his home in Independence, MO.
His wife, Gladys Tracy, passed away March 17, 2017. They are both buried in Memorial Park Cemetery, 82nd & Hillcrest Rd., Kansas City, MO.
My father had 2 children: my older brother, Larry Earl Tracy (now living in Blue Springs, MO with his wife) and myself, Kathleen Ulmer (living in Raymore, MO with my husband).
My husband, George Ulmer, is a real history-buff, and he was the only person who actually talked to my father a few times about the war. I wish now, of course, that I had my dad here with us to ask lots of questions. We did find an article about his injury and his military papers. He was shot in the knee cap under heavy fire, which he always said earned him a passage home. He had a stiff leg for the rest of his life.
I hope this has been helpful. If you have further information or would like to ask any questions, please feel free to email me. My information is below:

Subject: Henry F. Anfeldt B/302 he passed 13 Apr 1979
I found out today that my great uncle, Henry F. Anfeldt, served in the 94th division in B/302 in WWII.
He received a Purple Heart at the Battle of the Bulge and possibly a second one as well.
Trying to find more info on him. Any suggestions on how to find info on military service would be greatly appreciated.
We are also in the process of submitting a form to request formal military records from the government.

Hi I am doing research on a 94th division veteran of WW2.
I am looking for any information on a Captain Seth Briggs of Massachusetts. He was born in 1919 and enlisted in 1941. He was a member of a tank destroyer unit.
I would be grateful for any information.

My name is Adam Rubeck, age 31, and I'm the grandson of Arnold Rubeck who served in the 94th Infantry Division.
He started off as an ammo carrier but moved up to 1st gunner after just a couple of weeks.
I know that he landed on Omaha Beach in early September of 1944. He was discharged in January of 1946.
He suffered a concussion and combat fatigue. I know this is a long shot but do you know anything else about his
service or know of any pictures of him? I know his division was sent to a German submarine base to "hold them in place."
When the battle of the bulge broke out he was shipped across France to Belgium in cattle cars where he fought until
the battle of the bulge was over. He was then shipped to Southern Germany where he fought to break through the
Siegfried Line. His division planned to cross the Saar River but then he left combat because of the concussion and
combat fatigue. He was then sent to R&R. Anything you can tell me would be much appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

Subject: question: secret german projects
Date: Sun, 16 Dec 2018
Sir, I am doing research on secret german projects during the war and I have a question , when you guys (assuming you yourself are a WWII 94th div vet) marched into Czechoslavakia, the germans were conducting their highest secret projects right in that area.
- Will you please describe what you saw when you stumbled unto the german research compounds there?
- If you guys witnessed anything bizarre there, now is due time to reveal what you saw there.
- Will you please describe to me in detail the equipment and the german personnel you saw there?
- And who did you see come to retrieve the german project materials?
My research is for my own personal purposes.
Your reply will be held in strictest confidence.
Thank You for your help.
