Hello,

I'm looking for information about the 302nd inf, 76th Division during World War One. My Great Uncle and his brother did their training at Fort Devens starting April of 1918, and then shipped off to France in July.

They were eventually re-assigned to the 305th and 307th of the 77th Division at the end of October 1918. Fortunately, there are many good references available on these units, including a regimental history of the 305th of the 77th, my Great Uncle's last assignment. 

I'm especially interested to know what the 302nd was doing from July through late October of 1918. It would really help elucidate this portion of my family's history. Any leads would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely, John F Vietas

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."
