My grandfather, Robert Koons, just received the Jubilee medal this Memorial Day.  I am his grandson and interested in learning more about what his company did during the war.  He never talked about his experiences with even his sons and now he has the onset of Alzheimer's.  I'm not even sure if I'm in the right division for his company.  If you have any info on this matter, please click to email me

My name is Debbie Reeves and I was looking through some old photo's of my father, who passed away from lung cancer in 1989, and I ran across a photo with the name Massey on it. I know my father served with the 94th in 1945. I have a photo in Krumlov, Czech. 2nd. bn, 301st Infantry. His name was Leslie E. Rodgers. I don't know his rank at that time but went on to Korea and exited the Reg. Army and National Guard (Thunderbirds) as M/Sgt. I am desperately seeking people who may have served with him or who can put me in touch with anyone who served with him. Any information you can give me would be highly appreciated. He had 3 bronze stars from his service in Korea.

Subject: Company C 301st Infantry, Nick Gallegos 

I am searching for any info that may be provided regarding my deceased father in law, Nick (Nicanor) S. Gallegos. He was a Private in C Company of the 301st Infantry. His MOS was 405 Clerk Typist. He recieved 2 Bronze Stars (date unknown to us), the CIB on 1 March 1945. His highest grade held was Tec 5. His Army Serial No. is 38 585 019. He was from Lemitar, New Mexico. He was also awarded the Army of Occupation Ribbon (Germany), the GCM and 2 Overseas Service Bars. 

He never mentioned that he had recieved the Bronze Stars, only that he and a new guy had a bazooka and were led forward by a Lt. that told them to stay down, that an 88 was firing up a head and that they would get killed. Nick and the new guy did as the Lt. ordered, the Lt. went forward to scout and was immediately killed by the 88. This is all that was related to me while Nick was hospitalized with a mild stroke. Unfortunately, the next day , Nick suffered a severe stroke that effected his speech and made him an invalid, and was never able to discuss any more of his wartime experiences. He passed away 18 months later, never having recovered. 

I am familiar through readings of the extensive combat that took place in the Ardennes and the areas of the brutal fighting that the 94th did in order to overthrow Nazi Germany. Judging from his medical records, his tetanus shots 23 Nov 45, he might have participated in the Battle of The Bulge or was a replacement shortly after. I imagine this is how he went from being a clerk typist to becoming an infantryman and recieving the CIB. He was discharged on 8 July 1946 at Fort Sam Houston. 
If you could provide any info regarding Nick and the battles that the 301st participated in during this time, his daughter and I would greatly appreciate it. I as one have the deepest respect for WWII vets and the sacrifices that they did in order to secure freedom for us all. Thank you.

Subject: Information on Sgt. Luckritz "Lucky" 

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing in regards of Glenn Luckritz.  I am his grandson.  For some reason my computer will not let me post info on your message board so I am asking if you could help.  My grandfather passed away May 9, and we have been looking through his things.  He always spoke about the war with us, and even wrote a small book about his time with the 94th.  However, he never spoke about himself.  After his death we have found out that he was awarded 4 bronze stars.  He never mentioned
these to us or even his one and only son.  If anyone has any information about my grandfather and anything that he did while fighting with you please let me know.  I would also like to say thank you to all who this reaches.  My grandfather; for whom I have the highest regard, spoke about the 94th with nothing but respect and I know that he was in great company after meeting a few of his friends and hearing stories about so many others.  So if you do have the chance please let me know whatever you might remember about him. 
Thank you and blessings, 
Paul H. Luckritz

My name is Jim Keegan and my father was James J. Keegan, who served in the 94th Division (302d inf, Co E). I was interested in finding out about my fathers experience in the war, unfortunatley all the information I have is his discharge paper.  My father never talked about the war, he would only say he had continual nightmares that never went away.  Both he and my mother have passed on now, so I don't have anyone to ask about what he went through.  I was hoping that you could
point me in the right direction to find out more about his and those in his Companies contribution to he war effort.

Information from the discharge paper:

1) Battles - Norther France  Ardennes and Rhineland Campaigns 
2) Citations - EAME Theatre Ribbon with 3 Bronze Battle Stars, American Theatre Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, Victory Medal (What is EAME? What is a Theatre Ribbon?  What is the Battle Stars awarded for? Victory Medal?  Did all soldiers recieve these decorations?)
3) Miltary Occupational Specialty - Squad Leader 653 (How many men would be in a squad? What is 653 mean?)
4) Military Qualification - Expert and Combat Infantryman (Does Expert mean rifle marksman?)
5) Highest Grade - S SGT (Is this staff seargant? What are they responsible for?
6) Service outside continental U.S. and Return - Departure (Aug 6, 1944), Arrival (Aug 11, 1944) Destination (ETO) (What is ETO?) (Is this   5 days time off?) Departure (Not available), Arrival (May 5, 1945), Destination (USA)
7) Reason and Authority for Separation: AR 615-361 Certificate of Disability for Discharge (Lapel Button Issued)
(How can I find out what AR 615 361 means?)

Lastly - papers say no wounds in action.  My father had a finger missing and a large scare - about 5 inch circle on his side, that I assumed was from the war.  I thought he spent time in a hospital in Europe and I know he was discharged from a hospital in Martinsburg West Virginia.  Any Idea on how to find out about these wounds?
I would appreciate any direction you can provide.  God Bless.

My father was killed in February of 1945, shortly before my birth.
He was with the 94 Division.
The family has little information on his history in the military or the events surrounding his death. Is there any way I can find out more through this or other websites? 
Thank you.
