I recently came into the possession of a copy of the book "385th in the ETO".  In the book I found a Belgian banknote signed by about 24 men.  Most of the signatures are legible, but the only one I've identified positively is Bob Healy, who was the editor of the newspaper "385th At Ease".  I presume the others were also in the 385th.  Would anyone be interested in helping to identify the other names?

Thank you from my heart for maintaining this site. It is invaluable! The history section of the 304th, in the commemorative book, answered so many questions for me. I finally, finally know where my father, Allan J. Orrenmaa, was for the year after OCS and before the invasion of Normandy. What an incredible year it must have been!! 

Lt Allan J. ORRENMAA was the football coach for the 304th in 1943. I recently found 8 photos of a chilly football game taken at Camp McCoy on Thanksgiving Day. They include the 304th band, the team lined up for photos and some plays on the field, including one that says "WALTON punting". There is a close-up of several officers on the sideline. They are identified as Capt McCALLA-Co L, Lt SWARTZ-Italy, Maj RICHARDSON-2nd Bn and Lt DALE-Co K. I will happily post or share these photos if anyone would like them. And, of course, I would be thrilled if anyone remembers anything about my father. He died in 1965.

Thank you, again, for the time and dedication it took to compile this site. I am very grateful!!

I live in Saxony/Germany.My hometown Limbach-Oberfrohna was in April 1945 from 304th.Infantry Reg.free.Which Company is not known to me.At school the liberation by the Red Army was conveyed to us,the US Army was concealed and was tabu. Regrettable is,there is still,for 70th.anniversary,no mention of the benefits of the US Army,no honor roll or a notice in the city and environment.In the city's history,there are only a brief mention of the occupation by the US Army at 14.04.1945.The Red Army however,has a memorial to the memorial park.This but the Army has only replaced.The 1st place belongs to the American soldiers.In my family,there is a link from this time.The cousin of my mother is milit with the US Army from Penig in the USA.The unit is not known and witnesses are no longer on live.My mother was then 11 years and 30 years ago deceased.So that history will not forget.I am doing research on the events of that time.
This website of 76th.Infantry Div.i really helped.Thank You

Back in 2008 i was doing a refurb on a hotel in Bournemouth uk , when installing a suspended ceiling a few pieces of paper came out of the old ceiling , on closer inspection i noticed it was a letter. With this i put my hand in hole and retreived torn up letters and envelopes from a donald renick 36641640, 385th infantry . Also a sleeve from a jacket and various other pieces.

I am a grandson of Gen Henry C Evans and currently live in Baltimore, Maryland with my family. During my high school years, I lived with my grandfather and enjoyed my time with him immensely.  Although he rarely talked or shared his WWI or WWII experiences, I am very proud and honored that he served and fully participated with the 76th Division (The On-Away Division). I know he truly respected the men he served with because of the way he treated others in his life and the quality of relationships he maintained with friends and family.  One remarkable feature I remember was that he was a man of God, had a very strong faith, and was extremely bright.  In his day, from my memory, he was a remarkable person and is missed dearly.  Sincerely,  Dan Evans

My late father-in-law Arnold Holman was in the 76th and after his passing we lost his 76th Infantry Division ONAWAY commerorative book. Any information on obtaining a replacement would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather, Louis Alcarese, served in 76th with the 364th Field Artillery. Battery C. His discharge papers list him as a cannoneer. He passed away in 1983. I miss him. & I still remember a few war stories that he told me. My mother gave me a little bluebook (given to my grandfather by his C.O.at the end of the war) listing all the men with their rank & etc. in the 364th batteries. If anyone may have any info or pictures they would like to exchange please email me: te_gee@hotmail.com Sincerely, Troy
