Mr. Betts on our roles and have determined that he was with the 94th Signal
Co. We have no information on his address after discharge from the Army.
If you have any information on Wm. Betts please email the below party with

My name is Jena Meyer and I live in West Central Illinois. My brother is a road commissioner in our rural farming community. Sadly, people sometimes dump trash along the country roads. Today, as my brother was once again cleaning up someone else's mess, he found something interesting among the debris:
A book, similar to a high school yearbook,
but it is "The Men and Women in World War II from Vernon County".
There is a Vernon County in Missouri, but we are not sure this is the correct
one. Inside the book, there are two items, folded and tucked away for safe
We assume the items all belonged to
Mr. Betts. He is listed in the book with a photo. He served in Europe and
was discharged in Oct. 1945. Do you have any information on Mr. Betts or
his family? I would be pleased to return these items to Mr Betts or his
family if they have an interest. Otherwise, is there an archive or other
interested party who would preserve these mementos?

My father was in the 94th during the war. He was attached to the 319 Med Div. and was a surgicial tech. He was in Headquarters and maybe another company.
He grew up in W. Va. before leaving
for the war. He was stationed in Miss., Kan., Texas and I don't know where

Subject: Trip Planning - 94th Inf Div Tour of Duty
My four brothers and I are planning to travel to Europe with my father to retrace his path during his tour of duty with the 94th Infantry Division. We are planning to fly into Paris in late May, rent a van, and tour for about a week before our return.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us, and we want to make the best of it. We would appreciate any advice on how to make the trip a success, and any leads to resources that we can use for planning.
