My grandfather, Col. Burrowes G. Stevens, Sr., was the CO of 1st TD Group from 1943-1945 during campaigns in Africa, Normandy and Germany. I will gladly share a picture I have of my grandfather meeting my dad, B. G. Stevens, Jr., at St. Lo, Normandy, on 11 July, 1944, the day my dad arrived in France to take command of Co. B, 357th Inf Bn, 90th Inf Div. Both men were graduates of the USMA, West Point, classses of 1918 and June, 1943, respectively.

My Father, Charles W. Anderson, served in the 772nd TD BN. He was 94 years old and passed away on Dec 23, 2014. He didn't talk much about the war, but I know he was proud to serve. I remember going to some of the army reunions and him and my mom going to some reunions for the 772nd TD BN.

My grandfather, Henry "Johnny" Meyer was a tech sargeant in the 807th. He passed away in 1998. I attended two 807th reunions, Colorado Springs and Joplin, in the 90's. Really cherish hearing their stories and seeing the friendships that they established.

Our great-uncle was Private Gene V. DeRocchis. He was KIA on Sept. 22, 1944 in Holland and is buried in a private cemetery in Veroli, Italy. He was part of the 823rd Tank Destroyer Battalion, Company A. His younger sister (our grandmother) is still alive. This website has been very useful in finding out information on his unit and for that we are grateful.

My dad is currently 93 years old and served in the HQ 640th and left in 1945. He was wondering who might be left in the team and if they wanted to talk or exchange discussion through email. Please respond to this email and I will get you in contact with my Dad! You can contact directly by my email firstname.lastname@example.org or Mom's email email@example.com. He would love to chat to any one in that team.

My Dad (Mark Cobb) is at the bottom right in the 2001 Kentucky reunion picture.
He spoke fondly of these reunions and really loved going with my brother who lives in Franklin, Indiana. Unfortunately he is no longer with us. But I really appreciate this site in remembrance of his often mentioned Army unit.

My father (CPL Marshall Smith) was in the 656th Company C. He is in the web site picture dated 11/10/1944. 2nd row 1st on the left. He passed away in 1973 at the age of 48. I was 17 at the time and never had a good chance to speak to him about his service. It was really nice to see a picture of his company. I have no pictures from his service days. I would love to hear from anyone who has a history of their service

My Dad Captain Maurice Ziegler served in 636th TD battalion company C. He was severely wounded a day or two before Rome was taken but survived due to skin grafts and penicillin. He had me in 1969 and spoke much about the war and some of the brave friends he lost during that time. He passed of natural causes in 1998.

My Dad was with the 771st however it is shown in his paperwork that he was attached to the 84th inf. div. do you have any insight to this information. He was wounded and received the bronze star for action on Jan. 8, 1945 in Belgium.

My Father, Irving Green, was at the Staff Sergeants HQTRS, July 44-April 45, under Capts. Zach and Minton, can not make out the Majors name. That is what I can find on a Merit Certificate he was given.

My father, Leroy Moore, according to his discharge papers, served with the 603rd TDB as an armorer (50cal gunner). I can find no records of his specific unit during that portion of his WWII service, although I have a great deal of info on his service as a ball turret gunner on B-17's at Thorpe Abbotts, England. He apparently was shifted from flight status to ground infantry status. How can I go about finding a listing of units or rosters affiliated with the 603rd.that might give me an indication as to his service from just before D-Day to the Battle of the Bulge and the eventual freeing of the interred at Buchenwald? Any direction would be sincerely appreciated.
