My uncle was killed near Foret de Mont Castre on July 12, 1944.  Since the 90th Division was  there that day, I'm  wondering if you could tell me if my uncle was in that division as I do not have any information re his unit but I do know he was buried at St. Mere Eglise Cemetery #2 that day or later.  He was from Chicago,  IL, born 7/25/17.
Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am a history teacher at Duffryn High School, Newport South Wales. I believe that your division was stationed at a base near Tredegar House before departing for Normandy. Our school is built on the site on the base, and I am trying to gather together resources to introduce a study unit on this interesting but rather hidden part of our history. Is there anyone out there who can help me please? I would be grateful for anything at all.

My name is Pete Bracco.  My father, Mike Bracco, was a rifleman with A Company 357th Regiment from Feb 25, 1945 to Apr 26, 1946.  He passed away in 1975 leaving behind a tremendous legacy of service along with a loving wife and 10 kids.  As with many vets, he spoke very little of his time in service.  We would be interested in hearing from anyone who remembered Mike.  From Chicago, he serviced out of Camp Crowder MO and separated from Camp McCoy, WI.  Mike finished up in theater as the Message Center Clerk. 
Thank you all, Tough 'Ombres, your courage is not forgotten.

My name is Matthew Kime. I am a 30 year old CPT in the US Army at Ft Huachuca, Arizona. I am writing a book about the US Army liberation of Czechoslovakia. I am interested in talking to veterans who were there. I am also interested in copies of photos of Czechoslovakia during that time frame.

My interest in this project stems back to childhood. I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My neighbor was Fred Nordgren of the 357th Infantry. He told me stories about the liberation. He passed away in 2002. I recently served 6 years in Germany and the Czech Republic where I visited the Zhuri battlefield. I speak Czech as well and have traveled the Czech Republic extensively. Currently I am in correspondence with veterans from the 16th and 8th Armored Divisions and the 94th Division. I have spoken to Czechs as well as German veterans. I would love to hear from the 90th. This project is dear to my heart. I am married to a Czech girl and we have an 8 month old Czech-American son. I wish to preserve the story of Czechoslovakia's liberation for a new generation of Americans and Czechs and honor the memory of my long-time friend and neighbor, Fred Nordgren. I appreciate your support. Tough Hombres!

I am the eldest grandson of Robert Taylor Reichenbach, called "Rick" by some of his army buddies. My grandfather was raised in Collingdale, Pennsylvania, and was stationed for a number of years at the Field Artillery Replacement Training Center at Fort Bragg, NC. In 1944 he served in the 90th, I believe as a truck mechanic and driver under general Omar Bradley.

I have a number of things, including a book about the 90th infantry division with a painted leather cover, leading me to hope somebody in the 90th may know of him.

I would deeply appreciate the opportunity to talk with anybody who may have known my grandfather, so I might find out more about his time in the US Army.

I'm looking for anyone who remembers my father, James Maddi, who I believe served in the 357th regiment of the 90th. He came from Jersey City, NJ.

When doing some family genealogical research, I discovered that my father was captured in Germany on February 8, 1945. My father was never very talkative about his war experiences when I was a child. I do remember looking at the contents of a strong box full of his army mementos that included information about his POW status. 

My father is now 86 and lives with my sister in Pennsylvania, but his memory is not that good any more. Please contact me if you remember him. My genealogical research has made more appreciative of what those who came before me have done and gone through, so I would like to know more about my father's service to the nation during war.

My name is Chris Ludwig and I am a German citizen who lived in the city of Ingelheim (Germany) along the River Rhine in Rhineland-Palatinate.

During the 2nd WW the 90th walked/passed through Ingelheim and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about this topic. I am researching the history of my home town during the 2nd WW and became aware of the 90th and their pass-through.

I understand that it is difficult to remember every city on the long trail. Just to give you an idea, Ingelheim is at the river Rhine, about 15 Miles west of the city of Mainz and 50 Miles west of Frankfurt. It is in the Rhine valley where the river makes it's distinct S curve and is approx. 250 Miles from the French border.

I really appreciate your help and I am looking forward to hearing from you guys.

.........information about Randolph and Clark (and their men) commanding officers of the US detachment which attacked German's rear-guard in Saint-Hilaire, early August 1944. My grand mother happened to die because of her being wounded by a German shell on this action.

I also would be interested in the medic services , especially the US ambulance in Percy.

Does anyone have the large company photo of Company E of the 358th and be willing to have it posted with the other company photos that are already there? It would be a great help to find the photo of my uncle, S/Sgt. Edwin
H. Bohling, who was KIA on 5 Jul 1944 near Les Sablones, France.  The photo was taken at Fort Dix, NJ and can be duplicated at Kinko's.

......info on the former US 52nd general hospital, Wolverley, England.

I am researching this former award winning hospital when it was located here in our village at Wolverley, Kidderminster, England. I am trying to locate American service men and women who passed through Wolverley during those days. I would like to record their personal memories in a book I am writing, and donating the proceeds to "The British Heart Foundation".

You may be interested in visiting my web site at www.wolverleycamp.org.uk
for more information. Also a young lady recently entered a competition for a "Young Reporter of the Year Award" on BBC TV, and walked off with the first prize after filming her report at the former site of the award winning 52nd general hospital.

I do hope you will be able to help me to record the few remaining stories of those fascinating events which took place in our village all those years ago.

I would also be interested in hearing from anyone from the nearby Camp Bewdley, 114th and 297th general hospitals.

The 359th F Co photo posted on this site had 3 men with "LB" initials. Pvt Lloyd E. Bisbee, Pfc Leo H. Brown (also in July '45 Germany photo, #12), and Pvt Lester E. Berkheimer.  I am trying to solve the "mystery of the ring"  and determine who the ring belongs to. If any one knows anything about the three men in this photo, please contact :

My grandfather was in the 90th infantry, 359th regiment, 3rd battalion, I company 1st platoon. He passed away in January, 2003. He received the purple heart, bronze star, and two combat infantry badges. In his diary he speaks about January 29, 1945 of not taking their objective and being pinned down by the germans. He speaks about January 30, 1945 of sneaking into a town the back way and surprising the germans, taking the town but being pinned down by mortar fire even though they had taken some prisoners. He mentions taking Welchenhausen, and the next town, and crossing a river into the dragon's teeth of the Siegfried line. On January 31, 1945 he was injured by shrapnel from a mortar round that hit a brick wall they were behind. I don't know much more becuse he would never talk about it, and I have been going through his memorabilia. His name is Lloyd W. Musselman and he was from Logansport, Indiana. He also has the Presidential Unit
Citation, which I think the 90th received. His serial # 35904230. I'd like to know more about his bravery, and those he fought alongside if anyone has information. Thank you for this site.

He served in WWI in the PFC HQ CO 358 INF 90 DIV. This branch was out of Oklahoma. His entry date into the military was September 1917.

I believe he is in Brewer, Muskogee, Oklahoma in 1920 census.

He married Minnie Perry in Oklahoma after 17 Jan 1920 and before the birth of their son on 26 Dec 1921. This couple were divorced before the 1930 census as Minnie was remarried by this time. in 1930 Minnie had been remarried for less than 2 years.

I have not located him in 1930.  By 1941 he is in a VA hospital in California. He died  Feb. 1960 in California.

I believe he had a family after 1930. I would love to locate someone in this family. And I would love to locate someone who is from his family line of DAVIS. I don't have his parents. In the California death records he list his birth state as Illinois.

Dr. Meboe passed away in 1959. He was my husband's grandfather. Unfortunately, none of Dr. Meboe's family ever really knew what he did during WWII. So we are just now trying to piece together his military service so we can preserve it for posterity and honor his memory.

My father, 2nd Lt. Hiram J. Wright from Louisiana, was assigned to I Company, 3rd Bat. 357th Reg. shortly before the battle at Beau Cordray. He was captured along with the remaining men of I Company during the course of that battle on July 10 (approximately). Dad ended up in Oflag 64 in Poland and eventually escaped ending up in Odessa, Russia. He passed away last year(2002). I am seeking information about who else was in the company with him when he was captured and details of the battle that day. Also, I would like to know more about the trip from France to Poland as a POW and if anyone knew him in the POW camp.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for you help.

...... information:

French people have not forgotten what US soldiers did for them. A  well known French historian, Jean-Christophe Notin, would like to write a book on the GIs life in France in 1944 ? 1945 to celebrate the 60th  anniversary of D. Day landing. Your memories would be very useful.

 You can write to him at this address : Jean-Christophe Notin

 You can also use this email address : usafrance2003@yahoo.fr

 Jean-Christophe Notin would particulary like to get in contact with French women who married GIs and followed them back to the US.

 This book will be published in English in 2004. Thank you for your help.

...... anyone who knew my grandpa LAURIANO FIERRO. Unfortunately the only thing I know is that he was in the 90th infantry, a Tough Ombre. He would have been 24 years old in 1944. He was wounded and MIA for one year. He was sent home sometime in 1945.  I know that it is a long shot - but if anyone has any info, please e-mail me at jazzcall78@aol.com.

...... anyone who might have known my uncle. His name was PFC Everett Sherman Alexander, he was with "M" company 359th reg. He was killed July 6 1944, probably in Cotentin Peninsula area (possibly hill 122), we don't know for sure, but I've read some of the history and that battle coincides with date of death. He was a single farm boy from Luverne, Iowa. I wasn't around to meet him, but I sure am proud of the sacrifices he and the rest of you have made for me and this country.
Any information is greatly appreciated.

My Great Uncle - Vernon Putizer, served with the 357th during WWII. He passed away several years ago. I am trying to track down more information about him and his time in the service. To start off, I don't know which Company within the 357th he served in. Does anyone know of him  or could direct me further as to how I could find this information? Once I know this, it will aid me in further research.

... a map.  I am William A. Biehler and was in Co. K, 357th Inf. Regt. from June 23 until I was wounded in the second attack on the City Hall in Mazieres-les-Metz. After returning from hospitals I was assigned to the 90th MP Platoon for the remainder of the war and  came home with the Division. When we were in the Army of Occupation ( I think it was soon after V-E Day) each member of the 90th still there at that time was given a color map of the Division's route through Europe, it was about 2 by 3 feet and printed in Germany. The same map appears in the original Division History and also John Colby's book War from the Ground Up. I live in Palm Desert, Calif. not far from the Desert Training center where the 90th trained. There is a nice Patton Museum at Chiriaco Summit on Interstate 10 but no map of the 90th. I have lost my map in many moves. Does anyone have a map they would donate to this museum so the many visitors can see what we did?


I'm looking for pictures from the surrender of the 11th Panzer Division on May 4th 1945.

Also the 3rd Bn 359th Infantry cleared my hometown Waldmunchen (near the German-Czech border) on 26th April 1945. The journal says "Every block was defended". Im looking for information related to this heavy fight.
After the end of WWII the 3rd Bn 358th Infantry (Hq, I, K Company) returned to Waldmunchen as military government. They had their own newsletter "Citation", printed in Waldmunchen. Where can I get copies of these newsletters?
Does anybody remember the names Captain Conner A. Burnette, Joe Schreyma or Harry Mendel? Does anybody have pictures taken in Waldmunchen?

Thank you so much!

...anyone who may have known my great uncle Antone G. Sylvia (aka. Tony a.k.a.. Tut).  He was attached to the 90th Division 357th infantry.  He was wounded in the village of Budling, France on Nov 15, 1944.  After he had recovered from his wounds he was reassigned to the 397th AAA Bn.  I was recently told that he ran the Dinty Moore's Bar Room while attached to the 397th AAA Bn. He had achieved the rank of SGT before he returned to the States on Nov 25, 1944.  He only talked about his experiences in WWII with me before I left for the military myself.  Unfortunately, we didn't talk much more after that.  He suffered from mental illness and died back in 1998. I have 16 years in the military and I am trying to find out more about my great Uncle Tony's WWII days.  If you have anything that you would like to share with me I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you

(Utah Beach).

I have requested his military records but think they were one of the many that were in the fire.  He's now 83 and would like to get some information for his great grandsons (my sons) along with any medals or ribbons that he may have received for his services (but of course that's a timely thing and we have to start somewhere piece by piece). 

Would anyone have a company picture with him in it ?He said his basic training was in California for a short time then he went to Texas then to New York from there he was sent to England then to France. Here's some photos of him that might might help someone remember him.

..........all 90th ID veterans who knew Captain Laughlin E. Waters and the story of his meeting with Polish Captain after the Falaise 1944 battle. I mean the fact described in the John Colby's book "War From The Ground Up" on page No. 232. I am also looking for all possible witnesses of this meeting or the persons who saw the Waters' report on the subject of Polish war crime near Chambois after the Falaise battle. I would be very grateful for possible help in researching the problem of this crime and all controversies related to it as well as for help in finding all possible combat reports or other documents (also personal memoirs) which may have a relation to this historic fact.

I am a publicist of Polish MoD's "Polska Zbrojna" weekly and am investigate the fact of possible (or not) shooting of more than 1000 German POWs by 1st Polish Armoured Division soldiers near Chambois. I ask for it in the name of good US-Polish WWII ETO brothers-in-arms relations because there is strong controversy in Poland about this fact. According to Mr. Colby's book the 90th ID may be the only one witness of the truth. Thanks in advance for all 90th veterans for their possible help.

I'm a French citizen born in 1967. My hobby is to search and to learn about WW2 and especially about the 90th inf. Div.
Why  the 90th ?
My father was a little boy of 9 years when his village in Lorraine was liberated by men of the 90th.  This is my tribute to them  for what they did at this time.
In order to achieve my work, I'm searching for any information about the fighting close to Metz, and especially in a small town called "Ville-Au-montois" (south of Longwy France).
Any information would be appreciated. Thanks for all.
My best regards.

I would like to find anybody who knew my uncle, Tech Sgt Buford Lee Roy McKnight. Co I, 359th Inf, 90th Div. He landed on Utah Beach on D-Day and was killed near Dillingen, Germany, on December 12, 1944. He was red headed and went by the name of "Roy" or possibly "Lee." We heard that he and his comrades fought until they ran out of ammunition, then he was executed by the Germans and some of his comrades were taken POW. Any information would be appreciated.
