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: firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely, Troy

My dad Morris L. Fodiman, from Wisconsin, served as a medic in the 76th division during WWII. After he finished basic training and various educational programs the Army assigned him to, he arrived in Europe at the end of the European theater of war. He spent time in Belgium before being discharged. He never talked about his service - until he was encouraged to take the Honor Flight. After he met with other WWII era vets, the stories flowed. He passed away too soon at the age of 91 in February 2014. He was very patriotic to the end and proud of his service in Patton's army.

I am the son of Wilton D. Taylor who served with the 76th Div. in WWlI. He was from Massachusetts and left the service as a Staff Sgt. I have some of his war memorabilia at home including pictures from Luxembourg...on the way into Germany.
His memorabilia includes Army preparation material for the invasion of Japan.
My dad was proud of his service and association with the 76th as was I and the whole family. I am also an infantry veteran (RVN '69 - '70) and wish to extend my deepest gratitude to the "greatest generation" and to all past and present veterans of the 76th Division.
