Hello, I am the only son of PFC Edward J. Jesz, who was assigned to the 385th Infantry Brigade “L” (Love) Company of the 76th infantry Division during WWII.
My dad passed away in 2001 without sharing much of his experiences during the war. I am an avid student of WWII, especially the ETO, and am currently working on my masters degree in military history after serving 32 in Federal law enforcement.
While watching the celebration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day this evening ( June 5, 2019), I read an article of someone who made a documentary of their relatives’ trek through Europe during WWII. This got me thinking.......would there be anyone interested in coordinating a trip to Europe next year to create a lasting documentary of a much overlooked unit which served during WWII and walk in the footsteps of our ancestors from LeHarve, France to Chemnitz?
I think there is a story to tell, as recounted in “We Ripened Fast”, but I think a film that could be more accessible to future generations would be the highest honor we surviving descendants could dedicate to our heroic fathers and grandfathers.
I admit that I have no experience in organizing this sort of endeavor, but I believe that all things great merely start with an idea and the contributors add their ideas and experiences to turn it into a reality.
I may be contacted directly at: Ron.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 469-264-1421, if anyone would be interested in developing this once-in-a lifetime trip to honor and immortalize our ancestors. ONWAY!!

My grandfather, 98 now, is still alive. We have re-traced his steps according to his battalion book (417th, 1st Battalion) across western Europe from his landing in France to Chemnitz.
It was the best trip of my/our lives. We went to the reunion in MI and in La Crosse.
I'd imagine not many of these heroes are left--but mine is...and I've been to Echternach, Lux where they crossed the Sauer River and earned their stripes.
God Bless those amazing men and souls.
If any of you are still out there honoring these brave men, please let me know.

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
