My name is Joe Calisto and I'm trying
to find out information on my great uncle, Manual Calisto who died on 23
Feb 1945 in France. He was in the 376th Infantry Regiment, M Company.
I'm not sure what battalion of the 376th he was assigned. Do you
know the number of battalions by designation that were in the 376th?
Prior to going to Europe he was stationed at Camp Phillips, Kansas for
training. Do you have any information on Camp Phillips, Kansas?
I've tried getting his service records from St Louis and because of the
lack of information that I got in return I believe his records were burned
in the fire many years ago. Any and all information (books, websites, POCs,
etc) that you can provide would be of great assistance. V/R

My brother was in the 19 Corps --on
a half track--in the 430th AAA AW Battalion. Have been having a hard time
finding anything about these outfits. Sometimes he was with the 1st Army
and also 3rd Army. Can someone direct me to some internet sites?

It is with great sadness that I inform
your great association of the
passing of Robert
Justin Cook(see obit) who was a Staff Sergeant with B Co, 301st Inf,
94th ID. I am attaching an obituary that I wrote in hopes that you
will include it into your TAPS web page. Bob Cook was loving, caring
family man with a wonderful sense of humor. I consider myself very
fortunate to have known him. He was my father-in-law. I was
also fortunate, being a veteran (retired Army sergeant major), that he
would talk to me about your war. My "war" came much later -- in Vietnam.
I was also involved in operations in Grenada, Panama, Desert Storm and
Somalia -- all of which pale in the face of the sacrifices that you and
your comrades endured for the cause of Freedom in World War II. I
am retired from the Army, but now work as a senior civil servant with US
Special Operations Command in Stuttgart, Germany. I had wanted to
come to Germany during my active duty career, but they kept sending me
to the Far East.
My wife and I recently went up to the
area of operations of the 94th during the battle of the bulge. Bob
Cook was wounded twice in that area. My wife and I stayed at an old
former hunting lodge near the Saarschleife (crook of the Saar river) in
Ortsholz. Our visit was dual purposed -- to see the area where Bob
was wounded (Nohn) and visit, in the same area (Wasserlich and Greimerath),
the area where my family emigrated to America from 150 years ago.
It was quite a moving experience. It also raises the hair on the
back of my neck when I look at the area and think of what the 94th was
sitting on top of -- the Nazi marshalling and launching point for the Battle
of the Bulge -- the last gasp of the Nazi empire. Terrible times,
but the beginning of the end of a horrible evil inflicted upon the Earth.
One can not express enough to even begin to provide the appreciation for
what you endured for those of us who came afterwards.
With Greatest Respect and Admiration,

At least that is what I think it says,
The writing was very faded and the picture had seen some rough times. It
was sealed in plastic but very wrinkled.
My Grandfather died in July of 1988

I know my Grandfather was a replacement

is my best guest. If you or anyone else remembers him please get in contact
