Subject: Photo of James E. Graham "Jimmy" 
Date: Tue, 30 Dec 2003 
This is a photo of my uncle, James E. Graham.  He was in Co. F., 376th Infantry, 94th Div.  His platoon leader was Lt. Wilford Wilson and his Company Commander was Capt. Phil Whitman.  The photo indicates it was taken in 1944 (probably on leave).  I have talked with several members of his unit and previously left this the last time I placed a notice on the 94th site.    My Email changed and I wanted to keep the possibility of contact open. 

 Does anyone remember Jimmy Graham?    Jimmy was MIA 10 Feb 1945 at Bannholz Woods.   He was apparently found in 1951+ and is now buried in Staunton, Va.  (his home town).   I have been doing a lot of research on my uncle and would like to hear from anyone who may have known him from the time he was at Camp McCain until MIA.  The photo is not of good quality, but it is the best I have at present. 

   I am also looking for any photos that Include my uncle.  Does anyone have the ability to make and sell me a copy of any photos?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings and happy new year;
My dad, Pvt Louis Krieger was in a cannon company of the 919 F/A during WW2. 
Im trying to piece together his war experience as he talked very little about them. I know he was very friendly with the chaplain. Were the chaplains attched to the company, regiment or what? Is there some way I can get in touch with any of these people.   Any help whatsoever would be appreciated.
All the best to you and yours

David Krieger

One Answer from Harry Helms Secretary of the 94th Infantry Division Associatlon
David - You mention that your Dad was in th Cannon company of the 919th F/A. 
Actually, the two units were separate and distinct. 
there was a Cannon Co with each of the three Regt.'s. and a Battalion of Artillery, the 919th. 
If you could be more specific,maybe I could get you some info on your Dad.  
I believe that the Chaplains were assigned to the various battalions of the 94th but I not really certain. They may have been attached to the Regiments.

Good to hear from you.

I have been looking at a friend's photo album of her grandfather's army life and thought there may be some 94th Division Vets who were in the 302nd Infantry who might recognize a name or a face in the pictures. I will try to post the pictures in there is interest. The Photos belonged to PFC Pete Alsko - (By war's end it was Sergeant Pete Alsko) from Scenery Hill PA. (South of Pittsburgh) 

The pictures start at Camp Phillips in Salina, Kansas in 1943 and photos from Camp McCain in Mississippi and then to France (December 1944) , Germany and Czechoslovakia at the end of the war. 

The pictures are great as they range from training scenes to groups of men in Dress uniform, OD's and combat loads. Pete was in the HQ company of the 302nd. This is confirmed by letters to his wife and information on a jeep bumper in one picture from oversees. 

The following individuals are named in pictures in either the states or overseas: George Evans, John Perchan, Jack Heiney (Heaney?) Bob Dickson, CAPT Williams, and The following last names: Sidler, Ripper, Wagoner, Hockland, Evans, Dudkowski, Unshuld. 

If you know of any of these gentlemen or are one of these soldiers, there are some fine pictures you may wish to see. Plus, we're looking for anyone who knew Pete Alsko during the war years. Please email me. 

Thanks much.

I have a very worn copy of the "Three Hundred First Field Artillery Battalion" book "Stand Your Ground"  . It was originally owned by a Sgt. Carl W Archer of Washington Pa.

I found it in a bunch of stuff my mother just gave to me. My dad was Leonard E "Sunny" Sundahl who passed in 1974. My mothers first husband was S/Sgt Robert Sternaman of Flint Michigan who was KIA in the Bulge.  I would like to send this to a direct descendant of Sgt Archer if possible.

Subject: POW Reunion in 2004 

I was in Company K, 301st Infantry in Brittany in the Fall of 1944.  On October 2, a platoon of 55 men (mostly Company K soldiers) was ambushed near Lorient.  We were taken prisoner and most of them were interned in Ile de Groix, an island off the coast.  Being wounded like me, some of them were interned in a hospital in Lorient.  In November, we were part of a POW exchange arranged by the Red Cross Representative attached to the 94th Infantry, Andrew Gerow Hodges.  In January, 2002, we were invited to Birmingham, Alabama, where Mr. Hodges lives, for a formal dinner to honor him.  Twelve of the POWs were there, nine of whom were in Company K.  It was the first time any of us had actually met Mr. Hodges, and as you can imagine, it was quite emotional and wonderful.

We are trying to arrange a reunion in Lorient in June, 2004, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the exchange.  We are hoping that Mr. Hodges will be able to join us, too.  I would like to know if you have the names and
addresses and email addresses of the men who were in that patrol so I can contact them. If you do not have the names, have you any idea where we can get them? Perhaps Don Mulry or Harry Helms can help me out. 

Thanks so much.

My father died back in 1980 at age 56.  He never talked much about WWII but I remember him having terrible nightmares when I was a child.  I knew he had been awarded a Purple Heart but until today when I found his discharge papers, I did not know that he was also awarded: 1) Theater Ribbon w/3 Bronze Stars; 2) Good Conduct Medal; 3) Purple Heart; 4) Bronze Star Medal; 5) Victory Medal WWII; 6) Combat Infantry Badge.  Does anyone know where I can find out why he was awarded the Bronze Star and what was going on when he was wounded 14 February 1945 in Germany? He served from his induction 10 August 1944 until his discharge 2 February 1946.
