Subject: Jimmie Hartness Jr and How Kung Chen 
Date: Sat, 29 Mar 1997

camp mc cainHello, 
My name is Thomas Kersen and I have been conducting research on a particular soldier from D company 301st Inf Rgt, 94th Inf Div. named Jimmie Hartness. I have attended the 50th annual reunion in Atlanta and had quite a good time visiting with soldiers of the 94th. I wish to submit a picture of Jimmie and request that it may be posted on the 94th's homepage. I am still trying to find out more about Jimmie's status as a POW, perhaps someone was imprisoned with him. He was captured at the Battle of Orscholz on the 20th of January 1945. I have also tried on a number of occasions to contact a Chinese national who served in the same section as Jimmie, How Kung Chen. Anyone having information about him or how to contact him would be greatly appreciated.

This picture was taken while Jimmie was at Camp McCain. Does anyone know who the other two are?Click photo for larger size

Thanks,

Subject: Information about 94th Division

My father was a combat infantryman who served in the 94th Division in Europe during WWII.  He is now dead.  He had some souvineers that I always figured to hand on to my kids.  But for some crazy reason my mother thought nobody would want "that old stuff".  She was wrong.  I remember he had a small paper bound book that covered where the 94th went, it even had pictures in it.  Is there a place where reprints on something like this could be purcchased?  He didn't talk a lot about the places he was, or I don't remember everything he said,  He mentioned some place called Campolz Woods?  I'm not sure of the spelling.  The siegfried line.  Of course Battle of the Bulge.  He was in occupied Czechoslovakia for awhile after the war, he mentioned the tension with the Russians was high there.  He mentioned Nurenburg, but I'm not sure if he was there or not.  Oh, his name was Roland W. Peterson, came from Minnesota.  Any help and information about the 94th would be very much appreciated.  Thank you. 
Sincerely,
R. Wayne Peterson rwpeter@email.msn.com

Subject: Kenneth G. Staab 
I am trying to obtain information about my uncle Kenneth G. Staab who was from Pennsylvania.  He was a S/Sgt  in Co. L of the 376th Div., killed on 27 Jan 1945.  All my mother and other uncle can tell me is he was killed by shrapnel near the French/German border.  I am hoping someone can tell me more specifically where this happened.  Also he was awarded the Bronze Star, but his sister and brother don't know why and I cannot get details from the Army.
Does anyone out there remember him?

Thank you,
Wanda  (Red Dobbby@aol.com)

Does anyone remember my uncle,  Staff Sergeant John L. Schreier, from St. Paul , Minn., Company B-319th Engineers Battalion. He was killed near Besch, Germany, Jan. 23, 1945. He and his men had just completed building a bridge. Supposedly, men from Company B & C erected 2 floating bridges in Germany at a later date and one was dedicated to my uncle. If anyone knew my uncle or activities of this Btn., please write or e-mail me. I am going to Germany this summer and would like to see the bridge if it is still there.   E-mail: robbrose@ptialaska.net

Thank you,
