I don't know if you were with the 94th
or if you are just part of the website.
I hope that this reaches all of you
out there one way or another sooner or later.
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.

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.

PS The NCO in my photo is Sergeant J.R. Compton
Subject: T/5 Ralph Williamson, medic 302 infantry

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.
