Subject: My father was in the 94th
Perhaps you could help me out. My father, Frank Praino, was in the 94th Division. He arrived in Europe in Feb. or March of 1945. At the end of the war he was stationed in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia.
Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

Recently my grandmother came across the purple heart sent to her family when her brother(Pvt. Mike Philiposki #33258437) was killed during WWII. Mike was in the 302nd Infantry regiment, but that is all my grandmother knows. She never received a cause of death nor a location of his death. All she knows is that he died on March 7th, 1945.
Mike is listed on your panel, and cause of death is "DOI". Can you tell me what "DOI" means and how I might be able to find information as to how and where he died? How can I find out which company Mike served in and what his position was in his Company? Any information would be helpful.
I did contact the 94th Infantry Division Association, but they couldn't give me any additional information.

To the great men of the 94th:
His separation record says he served
overseas for 17 months, two overseas bars. My father was a very private
person and rarely spoke of the war to his children. He passed away over
15 years ago and I would like to speak or contact anyone who may have served

We are looking for information on 301st Infantry of the 94th Division. One of our graduates, PFC Odo Glenn Graham was KIA on 27 January 1945. We are planning a ceremony to honor PFC Graham and the other 13 men who were killed in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam from our high school as part of our 100th anniversary celebration. We have very little information on PFC Graham because he no longer has any living relatives. Any help that you could give would be greatly appeciated.

Hello, I am researching details of the 94th Div. for a future painting. In the attached photo, my uncle and his friend are wearing what appears to be the helmet liner only with the 94th logo painted on. Did all of your liners have these markings? Directly below the 94th logo there's something that looks like it might be crossed infantry rifles. Is this right?
Lastly, are there any vets who was at the crossing of the Saar from company L, 301st (or a company that was in the same vicinity) who's willing to tell me his story?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

My great uncle, PFC Frank J. Wentzel,
served with the 376th Infantry Regiment. He died of wounds on March
29, 1945. He was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
If anyone knew him or has any documentation showing what unit he was attached
to with the 376th I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. He
entered service from Bethlehem, PA. My father and I visited his grave
in Luxembourg earlier this year and we would like to find out more about
his service to his country. Right now all we have is a brief history
of the 376th from the Cemetery. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can

Subject: 94th picture......
I went through a box full of stuff from my parents home which was just given up by my oldest sister-in-law. In the stuff was a picture sent home by my brother, Berton G. Howe. Bert had been a Sgt. in the Army Air Corps at Foster Field, Victoria, TX in 1942. He gave up his stripes to take part in ASTP at U of MS. They soon needed bodies in Europe, so they took all of them and put them through infantry training at Camp McCain, MS and shipped them to England. From there to France, eventually ending up in Czechoslovakia. I found a picture he sent home. I will attach the picture in the hope that some of the guys might see themselves or friends. Bert is on the extreme right of the group, standing, without hat. Thanks, God bless.

Subject: Pete Alsko, 302nd INF
I'm hoping to find anyone who remembers Pete Alsko of Scenery Hill, PA. Based on photographs he was with the 94th Div, trained at Ft Phillips, KS and was likely part of the 302nd INF (He is photographed on a jeep indicated to be from the 302nd.) Pete is deceased but his Grand-daughter is interested in his story.

My mother's cousin, Frank Wentzel, was a soldier in the 376 Inf Reg and died of wounds on 3/29/45. I had the opportunity to visit his grave site in Luxemburg on two occasions since 1997. I remember "Uncle" Frank as a smiling, happy-go-lucky kind of guy eventhough I was only three years old when I last saw him. I'd appreciate any information anyone has about him. His family didn't talk much about him and now have all passed on themselves.

I just found this web site today, and as I am trying to do some research into my father-in-law's time in Europe with the 94th, this site was most welcome. I am now reading the personal searches, and I hope you won't mind a suggestion.
Since it seems there are so many different battalions within the 94th, it would certainly be easier to locate someone who was exactly in his artillery battalion if they were organized that way.
Thank you, however, for this informative web site.
please contact person direct by Email or Phone
