Compiler of Combat Paths...an attempt to trace the US Army units (down to the company level) in European and Mediterranean Theaters of war on a day-by-day basis.  Need detailed information on 76 ID's units.

I'm looking for information about a private in the 304th, 4th Battalion Cannon Company who may have died in an accident on April 26, 1945, just before he likely would have been shipped back home. I'd be very grateful if you'd contact me if this story sounds familiar to you. Thank you.

My grandfather, Alvin Merril Moyer was in the 417th. I do not know Battalion or Company. He typed up a bunch of memories and the war was the shortest one. He briefly mentioned attacking the Siegfried Line at the Sauer Rive. "

By the end of December I was joining the 76th Infantry division as a replacement.  I was assigned to the 417th Infantry regiment.  Again, there I was alone in a strange environment with no friends.  Time to start over again.

 

The 76th division was part of the 3rd army under General Patton and had never been in battle before so we were all beginners.  We attacked the Siegfried line at the Saar river and got our baptism of fire.  All of us were awarded the Combat Infantry Badge for that.  The Combat Infantry Badge is given for action under small arms fire.  The badge gave us an automatic 10 dollars a month raise in pay.  We fought our way across Germany for the next 101 days.  By April we were at the demarcation line.  This was the line that the allies had agreed upon that the troops were not supposed to cross to await the arrival of the Russian troops.  We were along the western end of Czechoslovakia.  This was our first break in three months."

4 months ago, I found out that my grandmothers younger brother (my uncle) was buried in Luxembourg Military Cemetery.  My grandmother, mom, uncles and aunts thought he was MIA, but all this time.  He had been buried in Luxembourg since 1945.  His name is Samuel K. Lua Jr.  His unit was the 304th Infantry Regiment, 76th Infantry Division. I am so proud of him.
I want to make him a shadow box and I want to know what patches, medals, awards I should put into this shadow box, to remember him by.
Thank you for having this website.

Hollis Cloyd was the brother of my father Morris Cloyd.  The two of them joined the army on the buddy system but were separated after induction.  They were close to the same age, with Hollis a bit older.  As younger men they dated sisters of which one was my mother.  The loss of Hollis was very tragic to my father and mother and my mother's sister.  My aunt and Uncle Hollis would have probably gotten married had he survived the war.  When my father passed away I inherited his metals and such.  I gave them to Gerald for this site.  I want publicly commend Greald's tribute to our uncle.  Gerald you are one in a million and you have made my father and our family smile from heaven.  Thanks so much
