Subject: 919th FA pictures 


Last month I contacted you about the passing of my grandfather, Elmer Coziahr.  We have found several pictures of him and men from his unit, the 919th Field Artillery, HQ battery.  I am sending copies of some of the best quality ones, and I would sincerely appreciate it if you could post these pictures on your web site.  If anyone knows if these men are still around and how to get hold of them, I would be very grateful if you could contact me at click here to email me .  You can also mail me at the address below.

This picture is labeled Whiteley, Elmer Coziahr and
"kid from Tennessee"
This picture is labeled Elmer Coziahr,
Whiteley, & Porter
This picture is of grandpa (Elmer Coziahr) kneeling, and Porter standing.


This is a picture of Capt. Ellis.
And this one is labeled Freddie Spitzer.
There are several more pictures, but not as good  quality as these.  If anyone is interested, I would be happy to email copies to them.  Again, if anyone knows an address or phone number for any of these men, I would be most grateful if you could contact me.

Thank you,

My father, Donald M. Stewart, served with the 301st Inf Rgt and was killed 21 Feb 45.

While attending the Armor Basic Course at Ft. Knox (68) I met a LTC Kaywood (ret), who had served in K Company and was present at the time of my father's death.  The meeting was quite accidental (he was the installation club manager at the time) but guessed who I was as soon as I told him my father had served in the 94th and he saw my name tag.  He told me some details of my father's death but was mostly occupied with club duties.  He said that he would contact me later and have me over to dinner with his wife (as I recall, she was with him at Camp McCain, as was my mother with my father) but I never head from him and soon finished my training there and departed.  I have always regretted not following up on this encounter.

I would be interested in learning what opportunities exist to perhaps meet with veterans of the 301st.  From looking at the 94th website it appears that most meetings are by region as opposed to units.

While attending the University of North Carolina (the one in Chapel Hill) about 1970 (give or take a year) one of my roommates' father (from long Island) visted him for a few days.  After he left my roommate told me that his father had won the DSC in WW2.   I didn't think much about it at the time.  A few weeks ago I was going through my mother's copy of the 94th's history (again) and discovered that his father had indeed won the DSC, while serving in the 302nd Inf Rgt.  Any way to determine if William Joseph Honan is still living? 

Best regards,

Hi all,
6 of my uncles were in WWII. 1 of them, Clarence Thompson, died on the Rhine River on 4/6/45. His brothers (my uncles) and I would like more information about Clarence; how he lived and how he died. I would like to know anyone who remembers him, anyone in his unit that could tell me what you all went through. My uncles are very interested in this, but none of them are particularly computer saavy. 

Uncle Clarence was in the 94th Infantry Division, 301st Infantry Regiment, I do not know the battalion, but I know he was in “A” Company, and *I think* in the 2nd or 4th Platoon.

All the boys were from Maryland. If you knew Clarence, or Paul, Harry Howard “Ducky”, Dan, or Mickey Thompson, please contact me:

  I am trying to get personal recollections of the fighting around Lampaden, Germany, in March 1945.  I understand the 94th overran the area, including the ridge and valley east of the village.  This ridge was the launching site for what the Germans called the "V-3", a pair of 164-foot artillery pieces, which were fixed to the hillside.  They were used to fire artillery on Luxemburg City during the Battle of the Bulge. 
When I visited the site, I was able to locate the support bunkers, which are now buried beneath earth and overgrowth.  The few writings that describe the site state that the weapons were abandoned prior to the arrival of the 94th, but I would like to know if anyone remembers that location.

My father served with the 94th, he was in the army from 1940 -1945.   He was a company aidman with the 302nd
infantry regiment.  I am looking for a friend of his by the name of Dugal Gordon, he served with my dad.  My
father's name is:  Joseph Hermann.

I also would like to know if there are more vets from this company still here like my dad.  He used to go to the
reunions until my mom got sick.  She has since passed away and I would like dad to be able to get in touch with
these old buddies.
