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 name is Dorothy Boyd and my brother, Pfc Grover Fulkerson was a member of Co. A, 385th Infantry Regiment. He was awarded the Bronze Star for action on 18 Feb 1945. He never talked about this and I am just now attempting to gain some info about my brother. He passed away 27 Jan 1967 and I have no one to ask about this.

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

I was in Co. E 385th Regiment of 76th Infantry Division.
I was wounded by shell fragment that severed the Sciatic nerve of my right leg. We were attacking the city of Ecternacht Germany and were on the outskirts in the Village of Ecternachtenbrook. A fellow soldier from North Bergen New Jersey was in the shell hole with me and he was struck in the belly. His name is Leonard Girovassi. Age 18 or 19. He did not survive. I will continue the story later. I am 91 years old.
