I am looking for information about my grandfather, Forest Leigh Berry. He was a member of Company A 774th Tank Battalion. If anyone remembers gramps please let me know. I appreciate any information about him or his Battalion. Gramps mostly talked about his time in the war when I was too young to remember. He passed away 2 weeks ago today and would like to learn more about the time in his life that he was exceptionally proud of.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information or ideas of where I can search.

Searching for anyone who may have known my father, Cpl William Lange. He was assigned to the 94th Div, 376th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Bn, Company M as a .30 cal machine gunner. He deployed from Camp Philips with the division to England and then to France. He was wounded in Nennig in mid-January 1945 and evacuated to England and later the U.S. He passed away in Feb 1994, a few weeks before his 72d birthday. Any information from anyone who served with him would be greatly appreciated.

I'm a news paper columnist and have written several times about the 94th and Sgt. Red McIntire, a Charlottesville resident who was quite active in newsletters and the such with the 94th. He'd also lost his leg to a land mine in Feb. 1945. Unfortunately, Red seems to have disappeared. His number no longer rings at his home and he isn't available in telephone information anymore. If you have any info on Red or can find out where he is through the association files, please let me know.

Subject: George C. Dusenberry, 35 690 515, "Dussy"
Date: Tue, 7 Aug 2001
I am seeking information about my father, Pfc. George C. Dusenberry, Service Number 35 690 515 who served with the 94th Infantry Division between 1942 and 1945. He and my mother were born and raised in Louisville, Ky. They were married in Kansas before he went over seas. He died in March of 1952 and she died in 1962. I have attempted to obtain his military records and medals from the National Personnel Records Center but was told his records were lost during the 1973 fire. His military buddies and most friends called him "Dussy". Two of his buddies, James Kelley and Harry Workinger (spelling?), were from Indiana.
He apparently served with the 376th Infantry Regiment, may have become
cut off from his unit during the Battle of the Bulge and received the Silver
Star with Numerous Bronze Stars. I obtained the above information
from old correspondence and photographs. Any information would be
greatly appreciated. I am now a grandfather who previously served
in the military, and would like to preserve our family legacy. My
email address is email@example.com

Subject: Our trip to Brittany July 7-9, 2001
I was in Brittany on October 2, 1944. I was in a patrol that was ambushed on that day. I was one of 55 men who were taken prisoner or killed in that ambush. I was wounded and spend six weeks in a hospital in Lorient, until I was exchanged in November, 1944.
In May, 2000,. my wife and I were invited to attend ceremonies in Etel and Ile de Groix in honor of the 94th. We were there with John Hoerber, Bob Higgins and Wayne Stewart. We were there when they dedicated a plaque to Tony Leone's brother, who was killed in Etel. At that time, we looked for the ambush site, but could not find it. We have a map drawn by Wayne Stewart and Bob Higgins.
We have been in touch with a Frenchman, Frank Perammant, who was a five year old child at that time. He lived nearby, and was aware of the attack. He knows just where it took place. He also told us that there is a book called "Not in Vain", by Leon Standifer, who was one of the soldiers on that patrol. The book has a map of the exact spot.
I would like to get a copy of that book. We are going back to Brittany on July 7th to July 9th., and would like to be able to see the site.
Do you have any information about this
book? How can I get a copy?
Any information would be helpful.
please contact person direct by Email or Phone
