Subject: Robert D. Howard 94th Infantry / POW's on February 15, 1945
Date: Wed, 23 Jun 2004

Hello,

    My uncle, ROBERT D. HOWARD, of Canute, Oklahoma was with the 94th Infantry Division in World War II and was captured as a Prisoner of War on February 15, 1945, just 8 days after he entered combat duty in Germany. He is still alive and he describes how he was involved in combat in the "Campholz Woods" area on that date. He said that after his unit ran out of ammunition and was waiting for support to arrive they heard tanks approaching.  When the tanks got closer they realized from the sound they made that they were German tanks approaching. The group he was in surrounded and he distinctly recalls a German soldier hollering, "Come Arous... Come Arous!"

    Due to being outnumbered, out of ammunition, and surrounded they surrendered. After the Germans had them all lined up with their hands up he recalls unclipping the shovel he had mounted on his belt as he would not need it anymore.  At that time one of the German soldiers did not like what he was doing so he rifle-butted my uncle in the face very hard breaking his nose. They were then marched out of this area by the "Siegfried Switch" or also called the "Siegfried Line" where there was a large line of pillbox bunkers. They later joined a large number of U.S. POW's that also included POW's from the Russian Army, England, and Morroco. 

    They were then encamped in empty boxcars at times as the Germans had hoped the Allied Forced would bomb these boxcars.  The were never held in a "Stalag" type camp but rather they were marched all over the area and forced to clean up factories and such that had been bombed by Allied Forces.  He said they marched through towns like Ludwigsburg, Augsburg, Metz, etc. and were kept on farms and in barns and such.  Several times men had collapsed from exhaustion only to be shot to death on the side of the road by German soldiers. They were eventually liberated just barely outside the town of Ettrigen, Germany on April 27, 1945.  I believe he said there were somewhere around 1,900 POW's in his group and when they were liberated the POW's went to greet and hug the U.S. soldiers that rescued them.  However, those soldiers told them to hold off on the celebration for a little while because they had to hurry up and catch those Germans so they could take them out. 

    My uncle then eventually made it to the U.S. Army Hospital Plant #4337 (either in Paris or England... probably Paris) on May 3, 1945. He was hospitalized for stomach problems from starvation and eating meals made of grass & water that they were fed.  When he returned to the U.S. he was in a V.A. Hospital somewhere in or near Virginia and ultimately returned to his hometown of Clinton, Oklahoma around July 1, 1945.

    I believe he was with the 302nd Infantry Regiment as he was trained in Camp Phillips, Kansas, then went to San Diego, and then to El Paso before he left for Europe.  He was trained in an anti-aircraft unit in the U.S. prior to joining up with the 94th Infantry in Germany in late January or early February 1945.

    If anyone might happen to know my uncle or have any details whatsoever on anything relating to his battles, capture, liberation, etc. I would be greatly indebted for your response. I can be reached at:

My father, Gilbert William Fuller of the 94th Infantry, passed away on June 11th 2004.  Like many veterans, he did not retell too much about his war experience.  I am lucky enough to have a 40 minute audio of him discussing a bit of it.  Preparing for his wake, I came across his discharge papers.  In it, it said that he had 4 bronze stars.  I don't know what these are for.  I would like to interview anyone who might be able to tell me more about my father's service record.  Any leads would be appreciated.

Thank you.

My name is Richard Scarper and I am looking for information regarding my Father who served in the 94th. His name is William (Bill) John Scarper. The only information I have is he served in "Cannon Company."  My Father is a man of honor and never speaks of the war. He recently provided me with a copy of the publication entitled the Attack. We never knew such a publication existed. We never knew there was a website for the 94th. Whoever assembled the website and publication, thank you so much.

I am trying to find out information about my grandfather. I have limited information about his service. My father died three years ago and unfortunately we didn't discuss my grandfather that much. When my grandfather came home from the war he became an alcoholic and never discussed the war with any clarity or without a lot of rage. I only have the info on his stone at the cemetery. it reads:

After posting message about my father Clifton Richard White, I went through previous messages in regards to the 302nd, CO L and found three messages posted. Unfortunaley email addresses no longer work. Does anyone know how to get in touch with John Potocki (posted Jan 2002)

George A. Farthing, my father was in this army division.  I would love to hear anything anyone would want to share with me about this experience.  He lived in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, and graduated from that High School.  He became a public accountant and resided in Penn Hills with my mother Marilyn Loesel Farthing and his four children. He died on July 4th, 1995.  I have very few pictures of him in uniform, and always wanted to know more than he or anyone else ever shared, particularly with me, as I was his youngest. 

Thank you,

I am looking for anyone who may have known my uncle, Curtis E. Holbrook from Coeburn, VA. All I know about him is that he served with the 94th Division, 301st Infantry Regiment. Also have info that his military specialty was under the code 73C20 ( ? finance clerk). He is listed on the Tablet of the Missing at Luxembourg Cemetery; date is Jan. 20, 1945. My research puts the 301st infantry at the Orscholz area on that date, but I don't know what company, etc he was in. 
Any information would be very much appreciated. I am determined that he will not be forgotten...

Thank you,
