My father was in the 94th infantry division, 301st, company F. His name is Mike Ricciardi. He is 81 years old now and I would like to find out if there are any rosters of Company F and if anyone remembers him. He lost a lot of freinds in WW II and just seeing the names would do him a lot of good

I am trying to locate anyone who may have known my grandfather in the 94th. He passed away in 1985 when I was 8 years old. I was not old enough to talk to him about his service before he passed away. I would like to hear from anyone who served with him. My grandfather won 2 Bronze Stars, one on or around Dec. 1, 1944 and the other on March 12, 1945 in Germany. I am interested if anyone may know what particular battles took place when he received the Bronze Stars.

Rebecca's father, Veldon T. Clem, is a World War II vetaran that never received his Purple Heart. Veldon's Army Service Number was 37244934 and he was a Sergeant HQ Co 2nd BN 376th INF 94th Div. He has received all his metals bar the Purple Heart and Recebba has been told there are no records available.
Rebecca was wondering if anyone could be of help in finding the records that would show where he was wounded. So far she hasn't been able to find any.
|Her father was in Germany when he
was wounded. He thought the name of the town was Burg but didn't remember
for sure. It is also assumed it was in 1943 or 1944, possibly winter as
Veldon remember's it being cold.
From the time he was wounded until he woke up in the hospital in Wales, he doesn't remember anything or how he got there.
As a little background, Veldon was born and still lives in Harris, Missouri.
Veldon remembers the details of a few of the men he was with (apologies if spellings incorrect):
Captain Whitman - Company Commander
The ship he went over on was the Queen Elizabeth but they did not have an escort.
If you can help, please contact Rebecca

I am looking for anyone who served with my stepdad, John Lavelle. He was wounded in Trier Germany in early March, 1945, and was evacuated to a hospital ship. He was from Holyoke, Mass, and was 30 years old in 1945. His service records were lost in a fire at the St. Louis records center. Any clue would be appreciated. I think he was a member of the 302nd Inf. He died in March of 2003, before we could connect. As a combat veteran of Vietnam, I am hoping to piece together the story of his service. We share a bond of all combat veterans, and I would like to strengthen it.

Arthur Edward Hendrix of Greensboro, NC died 6/30/2004. Arthur was a member of the 94th Infantry Division. He was in Company B of the 301st Infantry. While in live fire training with hand grenades at Camp McCain in Mississippi a live grenade was accidentally tossed into the trench he occupied with 5 other men. My father reached down and picked up the grenade and attempted to throw it out of the trench. Just as it was leaving his hand it exploded taking off his right hand. His quick thinking saved his life and the lives of the other 5 men in the trench. Arthur was awarded the Soldiers Medal for Valor for his actions that day. The other 5 men in the trench at the time were as follows: Cpl. Austin Di Siverio, Harrisonburg, PA; T/4 Crum Bates, Honoraville, ALA; PFC James I. DiBartolo, Canton, OH; PFC Omer A. Eggeman, Seymour, IND and PVT Armen B. Tookmanian, Cleveland, OH.
Arthur enlisted on 8/23/43 and was discharged on
11/2/44 with the rank of Staff Sargent.

William Franklin Campbell was a Sgt in Co. E, 376th Inf 94 Division. He served in many Europe campaigns and received a Purple Heart in France on the 15th of Oct 1944 for a gun shot to the head. He survived and returned to MO to marry and raise two children. He died in 1972 of lung cancer.
He had great respect for Gen. Eisenhower but didn't care much for Patton. He was part of a forced march to cross Europe and take Berlin durring the bitter winter of 45 and nearly lost both feet to frost bite.
I would like to hear from any of his army buddies who remember him, who may have memories of him to share. Please respond click here to email me I have some photos of him and some of his army buddies. I don't know how to post them here, but will gladly share copies with anyone who remembers my father.
Thank you and may you all be blessed. Nancy (Frank's daughter).
