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

My great-grandfather served in HQ Co., 3rd Battalion, 385th Regiment. He was an infantryman, drafted in 1943. Before the war he was a policeman in Naperville, Illinois. His name was Mike Ripsky, though many of the men in his platoon called him "Rip". He passed away at age 47, so I never got to meet him. Before this website, I didn't know very much about Grandpa Mike. I collect WWII things because I love history and my great uncle gave me his photo album from the war and a few of his things (aid kit, police badge, pictures, records, etc.) Thanks to this website, I have been able to learn a little more about him over the years. He was a photographer in the war and I actually found a photo of him on this website in the Photo lab link. I'd like to thank you for making this website, I visit it often.

My name is Susan DeWolf Kitchens. I am looking for anyone who
knew my father, Robert H. DeWolf. He was a 17 year old kid from Oklahoma. The unit was going through a wooded area and the next thing he knew, he was in a French hospital with a toe tag.

My dad, Harold Anderson, served in the 76th Infantry Division during WWII. He was so proud of his service with the 76th. I just enjoyed all the times when he would sit with me and we exchanged all sorts of war stories with each other. He was a draftee, and like my dad, I was drafted during the Vietnam War. I miss my dad.

My father was Matthew Jozwik from Passaic, NJ. He was in Co. E, 385th infantry. He rarely spoke about the war, and passed in 2007. If anyone has any information on him, I would love to hear about it. God Bless You All who served.

My name is Heidi and I'm trying to find someone who knew my grandfather John J. Walsh of the 76th division 304th infantry regiment Company A. He was a light motor crewman and recipient of the Silver Star and Purple heart.
I have never met my grandfather and I want to know more about his actions during the battle of the bulge. If anyone has any information please let me know. According to my records he was a man with brown hair, brown eyes and about 5'6 in height.
My email is email@example.com and my telephone number is 781-307-8365
