Subject:  lost item 

In August 1996, I attended the reunion in Kansas City MO.  Upon leaving
the hotel, I lost the adapter and charger to my 8mm Canon Camcorder.  Is
it possible that someone in the 94th picked it up and may still have it,
hoping to return it to its owner sometime? 

I haven't lost a veteran, only my camcorder parts.

My e-mail address is: lpcsac@win.bright.net
Thank you.

Subject: William (Bill) Iverson - Field Artillery Batallion - T/Sgt

I would like to know if anyone was in the same batallion or knew my grandfather William (Bill) Iverson. He was all over Europe during the Second World war and also later in Japan - guarding Tojo!  I particularly am interested in an incident in Germany in March 1945 when he was awarded the Bronze Medal for heroic achievement. Apparently, Sgt.Iverson was leading a convoy and encountered a road block and was surrounded. He hiked up to enemy positions and convinced 80 Germans to surrender based on the futility of resistance.  I have a whole list of other army personnel who received bronze stars for their heroic achievements. Anyone out there who knew Bill Iverson, 
please respond.

Subject: Jan., 19, 1945, Co. L, 302r. 94th Div. 
Date: Sat, 25 Mar 2000

I write this message on behalf of my father-in-law, Clyde Statton, Pfc, Co. L, 302r., 94th Div.  On the 19th and 20th of January, 1945 Clyde along with a dozen or so fellow soldiers, found themselves trapped in a German bunker they had fought for, taken, retreated from and retaken several times during the 24 hour period preceding the late hours of 1/19/45.  Their position was overrun while inside the bunker and the group found themselves trapped.  Several hours went by while the Germans attempted to blast the G.I.s from their position.  Finally the Germans threaten that the position would be hit full bore with the "eighty-eighties".  Facing certain death, a Lieutenant in the group gave the order to surrender.  Upon doing so the group was immediately separated from one another, officers, nco's, and pfc's.  The new prisoners, many with injuries ranging from gunshot wounds to broken limbs where ordered by their captures to carry the German dead and wounded from the battlefield.  The prisoners were then marched away.

Clyde was separated from several people he had fought with for a long period of time.  One of the soldiers captured the same day was the Platoon Sgt., Marcowski(sp). Clyde believes Sgt., Marcowski was from the state of New York.  Clyde would enjoy hearing from Sgt. Marcowski or anyone else from Co. L, 302r. who survived the fighting of 1/19/45.

Pvt Robert Lee Fenn
While going through some of my parents old papers, my sister and I found a small booklet with a description of the various places our uncle, Pvt Robert L. Fenn, had been during the war. Our uncle belonged to Company "C" of the 302d infantry.  Uncle Bob was killed on 1-20-45 and his name appears on the "Roll of Honor" page of the booklet. 

My sister and I would love to know if there is anyone out there who might have known our uncle.  We would really appreciate any information that anyone might have.  I am including a picture of him. 

Please respond to my email address - Framegame@aol.com.  We have other pictures of my uncle and other service men that I will share as soon as I can get them scanned.

My grandfather served in the 94th, in the 301st field artillery division. His name is Raymond Benedict, and he was from Wisconsin. He passed away a few years ago, and we are attempting to put together a war book for the rest of the family and descendents to have as a remembrance. If anyone has any information about him or the 301st. please contact me at debi90@hotmail.com. Thanks so much.

Subject: Searching For John D. Fosco 

First of all, thanks for your valor and patriotism.

Searching for info on Private John Fosco from Philadelphia. He was 17 when enlisted. Don't have much info. Remember him saying he was a scout and hung out with some guys from New York and North Jersey. He was hospitalized with Trench Feet. Also remember him saying he ran a gas station after German surrender.

Would like to know his movements and various towns he was through. If anyone remembers or can lead me in the right direction I would greatly aprreciate it. I would like to tell his newly born Grandchild about his grandfather and the heroism of the 94th. Thank you

Subject: Pvt. Louis Krieger 

I'm wondering if anyone knew my dad, Pvt Louis Krieger. He served with the 94th division from 1943 till the end of the war.  He was, I believe a part of the 919th Field Artillary. He has 3 battle stars and has a Purple Heart as a result of wounds incurred when his own weapon (105mm howitzer) exploded on him.

He passed away two years ago, and I never got to know what he went through, as he didn't like to talk about it. I know he was a very humane person and never lost sight of the fact that his enemy was human. This may sound strange but his credentials for feeling this way were good and he had a right to hate and kill the enemy because we are Jewish. He told me that he would ask the Germans "where are all the Jews". He spoke to them in Yiddish which is 14th century German. They of course never knew. BUT, he told me he tried to save the life of a dying German soldier 

I'm very proud of him, Both for helping to rid the world of A. Hitler and for maintaining his humanity while doing it.

If anyone knew him please email me at ak2a@aol.com
Thanks Dave Krieger
