Subject: The search for Gaston's hero 
Date: Tue, 29 Apr 2003

Gentlemen:
On March 21, I sent by e-mail to the 94th Infy Division a note with a photograph seeking your help in the hope that you might be able to assist me in the location of an individual who was possibly in the 94th and who entered the prison at Luttringhausen (today at or near Ramscheid).  I was in the 95h Infantry Division and all over Europe, as was the case with most of us, and so I am in full awareness of the chances I have of locating an American GI who released this very important man Gaston Vandermeersche from the political prison. 

I was in hopes that the 94th has a journal much like that which the 95th Division puts out perodically wherein that photo might be reproduced.  If not, perhaps the 94th will have a reunion at which time the photo could be posted.  If you can offer me any assistance I will be most appreciative--perhaps a list of the various Regiments, or the attached units to the Division would help me--in that way I can go on the internet to each of those that still have touch with one another.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Dr. Ray Brandes.

Hello,
My name is Tom Schlosser.  My great uncle, Wilson Schlosser, apparently served in the 94th during WWII in an artillery unit.  I have come into possession of some of his WWII possessions.  I want to make a personal memorial to my uncle, but I would like to confirm if he was actually a member of the 94th.

Is there a list of all service members associated with the 94th?

My uncle's name was Wilson Schlosser.  He was from Titusville, PA and I know he served in Europe.  He did not die in action.  Unfortunately, he died in the early 60's, before I was born, in a tragic accident while responding to a fire with the Titusville Volunteer Fire Department.

He is the only relative I know who served in WWII.  I recently joined the Navy Reserves and I would like to try to collect and preserve as much info about my Great Uncle as possible.

Any information you have would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Thomas Schlosser

Good Day:

I just found your website for the 94th INF Div.  Just want to mention that my grandfather served with C CO, 373rd INF, 94th Division.  I am very proud of that since most of his children (my uncles) served in the US ARMY in the Korean and Vietnam Campaigns.  In 1980 I broke the chain of Vega's being in the Army and joined the Marine Corps for 8 years and retained the rank of Ssgt.  I served with 1st and 2nd Marine Divisions and I am a recipient of the Purple Heart for the injuries sustained in the 1983 Marine Corps Bombing of our barracks in Beirut, Lebanon.  My brother Angel Vega is currently in Iraq with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force as a Gunnery Sergeant.  Now I see where we get our military genes.  It does not matter what branch of service we belong to, we have fought for the same principal.  FREEDOM.  I want to thank you for your sacrifices and for securing my future and the future of those ahead of me.

Semper Fidelis

My Grandfather served with the 301st infntry regiment 94th div, during the ardennes campaign of 1945. His name is Millard Pepper he was a PFC.  He was wounded by an 88mm one afternooon in Dec or Jan. 
  I am a Sgt in the US Army 1/180th Field Artillery. My Grandfather is a true hero to me and I came across the 94th websight. I would like some more info on the 301st reg if it can be had. Also My Grandfather was best buds with a guy named Herman Hansen or Hanson from Wisconsin or Minnesota i think. I think it would be nice if Grandpa made some contacts with some of the guys from so long ago. MY question is I guess how and if there is anyway to find Hanson? I saw the 94th assoc meeting is i Texas that might be a good start for him i would like to accompany him.

I would also like to add that last year I was able to get Him into my 155 mm howitzer with the blessing of my 1st sgt and BC . He fired a three round mission and sai he hadnt done any thing like that for over 50 years. HE is a great American and I am proud to be his Grandson he is also a bronze star recipient for his actions on that day he was wounded in the ardennes.

Thanks click here to email me if  that does not respond the attached E-mail will get to me . Thanks again.

Subject: 94th Infantry 

When I was a boy in the 1960s, a group of us played "Army" in our neighborhood.  Being fascinated about military equipment, I ordered a bag of military patches from "The Patch King," a N.Y. area establishment which advertised in Boys Life.  One of the patches I received was that of the 94th.  Reading about WWII in my family's 1950-era Compton's Encyclopedia, I discovered a colorful two page illustration of U.S. Army Division insignia and "where they fought."  So, I found out a little about your unit.  Under my direction, our army "unit" adopted the name "94th Infantry Division" for our exploits in the backyards, streets, woods, and vacant lots of the west side of Charleston, West Virginia, near where I still reside.  We figured that it was easier pretending that we were fighting the Krauts because our countryside and terrain looked more light Europe than the Pacific.  Anyway, Compton's had your unit mentioned in some of their "capsules" describing the various battles of the war.  I still have that patch, if anybody wants it!!  I have made copies of that patch color feature, and would be pleased to provide a copy if somebody is interested.

In 1980, I was attending a church retreat in Gassaway, West Virginia.  Our group was sent to various homes in the area for lodging.  I was assigned, with some other guys, to the residence of a Mr. Frank Foster.  Turned out he was in the 94th.  He told me that the patch meant "9 at night, 4 in the morning."  I am going to try to get back in touch with him.  Understand he is still living.

At the Wren's Nest Tea Room in St. Albans, West Virginia, one can find a recreated WWII enlisted man's club.  They play big band live music on the weekends and recorded music during the week.  The food used to be pretty good but has gone down hill a little in recent years.  The owner of the place has dedicated a section of it to all the members of the various "special" units all over the world, as he is a former Special Forces and Paratrooper.  However, what is interesting is he has a display with all of the actual patches worn by all of the Third Army Divisions.  I need to get down there to get a picture.  Let me know if you want a copy.  He has a little thing on Patton.  You see, Patton's grandfather was from Charleston and commanded a local company of southern infantry that fought in the Battle of Scary near here.

The restaurant has interesting displays of uniforms, weapons, and equipment.  He even has an old half-track which he has restored outside.  I would be honored to show you or any of your comrades around the place if you are in our area.

My late Dad was a navigator with the Fourth Ferry Group of the Military Air Transport Command during the war.  It's hard to play like you are flying a plane but I was extremely proud of him, also.  I've been trying to find out about his outfit.  They were more of a composite unit because the navigators and other crews traveled separately and got back on their own to their base in the States.  They never had any kind of reunion activity although he stayed in touch with some of his old buddies.  In my day, the infantrymen got all of the glory on the t.v. shows and in the movies.  Imagine that you know that the 95th Infantry Division was the unit featured in the movie Hell Is For Heroes, which dealt with the Siegfried Line, where you all were.  Was that division a rival?  And, weren't you in the same corps?  I've met people who were in the 78th, 2nd, 101st Airborne, 99th, 89th, and many others over the years.

Well, anyway, thanks for reading this.
