Subject: 94th Infantry Division Casualty List 

From: Adleone60@aol.com
My brother, Lt. Thomas J. Leone, was the Platoon Leader, Company K, 301st Infantry, 94th Division and was killed in action (KIA) on December 4, 1944 in Brittany, France.  At the time of his death, he was with (I believe) three other members of the 301st.  He and one other were killed and two were wounded.  If I had the dates of their deaths, I could determine the identity of those soldiers who died with him.  Do you have a listing of those soldiers of the 30lst who were wounded in battle and the dates?  Or have you been provided only with the identity of those KIA?  If I had the identity of those wounded and the dates, I might be able to determine the identity of others who were with my brother on their mission. 
Thanks for you help.

I don't know if you were with the 94th or if you are just part of the website.
Please forward this if you are not? Thanks.

I hope that this reaches all of you out there one way or another sooner or later.
I wished that there were more photos out there of all of you.
I wished that I had found you sooner.  I would have written this sooner. I just want to say THANKS.  For what you did.  I once knew quite a few of you, sorta. I was the little boy who was always following his dad. It seemed like every year we went to a reunion. Every year it was part of our life growing up. I was always amazed at how a bunch of 'old guys' always seemed so happy to see each other. How excited one got when he saw someone he hadn't seen in so long. I'm glad I grew up with it. I was always proud of my dad. I was amazed at how many of you seemed so happy to see him every year. I was a little boy trying to learn. I did thankfully. Dad's been gone for 25 years now and I still miss him and am still proud of him. I just wanted to take the 
time to tell all of you also that I am proud of you also.  I was blessed because of you and others like you. I did not have to serve. I did not have to learn about the heartbreak and the glory. Because of men like you I am and forever will be free, To follow my heart and my soul. My children can do the same. I have 2 beautiful sons who will follow on that tradition, because that is what it will be now. A tradition. Because of you, they are free. THANK YOU.
If I know dad, he's probably peeling a few spuds right about now. But with a smile on his face. Caywood at his side!

Thanks guys, for everything

My father, PFC, Howard A. Thomas, Sn. # 24 833 566 was wounded on February 19, 1945 in Germany.  He has since passed away and I am attempting to find more information about the battle in which he was wounded.  I could not get him to talk to me about the war after I became older and interested.  Now I am trying to obtain as much information about him as possible to give to my grandchildren. 

Would appreciate any information at all.

Thanks.

    I am writing a paper on the history of Ranger insignia of W.W.II.  I have a copy of a National Archives photo that pictures a 94th Division NCO in 1943 as an instructor at the Camp Forrest Ranger School.  Can you put me in touch with anyone from the 94th who might have attended this training and could tell me about it?  I want to know the dates the school was in operation, course of instruction, special insignia they were awarded (if any), and whether the school took training directives from a higher HQ.

    I appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you for your time.

My father was a combat medic in the 302 Infantry of the 94th Div.  He died in 1963, and after my mother died in 1991, I have been trying to find any information concerning my father during WWII.  I have been in contact with your organization and have found some bits and pieces, but unfortunately nothing substantial. 

One aspect that I am pursuing is a picture which appeared in the book "History of the 94th Division".  I remember seeing this picture when I was young in a book that my mother had.  At that time we thought one of the medics in the picture was my father but we weren't sure.  I got a copy of the division history and was surprised to see that picture in it on page 229.  I haven't seen the picture in years because I don't know what happened to the book that my mother had, but I was certainly happy to see it in the division history.  What I would like to know is if you can tell me where I may be able to find out about the picture.  The individual in the picture who I believe may be him is the medic standing on the passenger side in the front, tying the casualty to the jeep. Any information at all would be appreciated.

I have been trying through the Veterans Administration, although the local individual is trying hard, he is not getting much help from the records office in St. Louis.  As a result, I am searching anywhere that I can.  My father definitely was in the 302 Infantry, and guessing from and old picture of him standing in front of a jeep, he could have been in Company I.

That is about all I know at this point.  Any help that you can give me will be appreciated.  Everyone that I have worked with in your organization has been great.

Thanks....
Gary Williamson
