>Good evening everyone,
>I am trying to find any and all information concerning my grandfather.  His name was PFC Otto Kaldorf.  His friends often called him "Lou". I think he served in company D,301 infantry regiment, 94th division.  He spoke fluent german being from Germany orginally and often told me stories of being part of a special detachment of four men who would go ahead of the regiment into the towns and scout out any activity.  Any information at all concerning his activities or the validity of these stories would be greatly appreciated.
>Thank you.

>Dear Sir, 
>Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'm sure that you are deluged from time to time with all kinds of requests for information. I will try and make this brief, in the hope that maybe you can point me to some other sources. My name is JOSEPH FRANCIS OBLEK, my Father was FRANK STANLEY OBLEK who was attached to Co. "C", 319th Engineer Combat Battalion, 94th Infantry Division. Apparently some time around 1946, my parents divorced. Apparently, it wasn't amicable. My mother passed away, some years ago, yet during all that time any questions regarding my father were not answered. I have never seen a picture of him, but learned from a distant uncle that he fought in the Battle of the Bulge at Bastonge. I have recently retired from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after 33 years of service. My son expressed some interest in his grandfather, after we discussed my military service (USMC 1958-1964; USMCR 1968-1972). After the conversation with my son, I decided to see if I could locate any information about him. Recently, I found his burial site in Burlington National Cemetary. Subsequently, I discovered his service with the 94th. My request is this, it may sound silly, but where can I find out information about this Division, in hopes that I can find some information about my Dad, or the outfit he served in. While this information will be of tremendous value to me, I think that my son, who is a paramedic on the Las Vegas Fire Department, would be estatic. Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration.

>I was wondering if you have any information on my father.  According to his personnel record he was in the 302nd Infantry, Headquarters Company.  The record also states that he was an MP.  He was shipped to England in August of 1944 and discharged in February of 1946.  He passed away in 1995.  I was trying to find anyone who might have known him during the service.  Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.  I am also going to contact the regional representative.

>My father, William J. Bailie, 36470641, served with the 301st in Germany and won the Silver Star for actions on 22 Feb, 1944.  I would like to if anyone has any information regarding the action his platoon was involved in as well as the general situation at the time.

>Hello, I believe my father served with the 94th in WWII. I do not have a lot of information other than his jacket, dog tags and rank. I have tried to access some information on-line to no avail. I would like to get some basic information pertaining to where he was stationed and any history of his battalion, company etc. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

>While perusing through the the website of the 94th Infantry Division I noticed the above name on the casualty list of the 301st Reg.  I knew someone by that name from my old neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. As youngsters we played a lot of football, roller  hockey, etc. together.  The war parted us.  Later on after the war I heard that he had been killed.  When I saw his name, I was jolted to say the least even with a lapse of 56 years. I was wondering if you would have any further information about Cal or if not, you could direct me to an appropriate agency.  Thank you for your attention and consideration to this request.

>I was somewhat taken aback when I saw a T-shirt with the 94th ID patch on it from Bosnia-Herzegovina.  I had a friend, who took command of a Special operations unit in Sarajevo look for one for me.  Unfortunately, the 94th had (once again) completed its mission and headed home.  The T-shirt I saw here in Stuttgart, was on a Sailor!  He had purchased it while on assignment in Bosnia.  Prood that the 94th Infantry Division

>I'm writing with what seems like an unrealistic request, but it seems to be my only chance.  My grandfather, Pfc. Oren Watson of Evansville, IN served in C company, 1st. bat, 376th reg, in the 94th division.  My father came across his discharge papers and noticed that he had received two bronze stars...he has since applied for the details of his father's (my grandfather's) actions and has heard nothing.  I fear grandfathers records may have been destroyed in the fire that swept through the records in St. Louis.  I must now ask that anyone with memories of my grandfather email them to me or call me at home.  I know it's a long shot, but thanks anyway. 

>And thanks to the men of the 94th and all of our grandparents and great uncles and aunts for the pains endured and sacrifices made for the sake of freedom.

>God bless.
