    Dear Sir, I have recently came across many items related to S/SGT Carlo Liotta, H Co., 2 Batt, 22nd Infantry Regt. He was KIA in late September 1944. Was hoping to dig up anything that would allow me to find out what happened to him. He is my best friends Grandfather.

      My father’s uncle, 1st Lt William F Rathgeber was in Co. K, and was killed April 4, 1945 near Konigshofen Germany, supposedly by Kriegsmarine sniper. Any information about action around that time and location would be much appreciated

    Hello

    I do not speak English and I apologize;
    I know Carlo Liotta died September 15, 1944 in Brandscheid in Germany following a gunshot wound in the head.
    He was buried first in Belgium and his body was then transferred.

        Hallo,

        I’m Andre and I’m from Holland.

        5 years ago I went to the cemetery in Normandy. I took a picture of the grave of pvt. T.J. Underwood of the 22 infantry.
        Since then I’ve got this photo as a background on my phone seeing it every time I’ve picked up my phone for the last 5 years.

        This picture has a very special personal meaning and memorys for me.

        The last 5 years I’ve got curios about this private and his path in Europe. Could you help me with some information about this soldier an his tour in Europe?

        Many thanks from a curious Dutchman.

    Wow , Dad was with F company, and told me what happened that night….when they was holding the line….Every Christmas he would tell us that story, of E,G and his Company…fighting with no winter clothes, all night…Wilson was the CO, and he said , the last attack was an SS unit and punched through thier line..He said Wilson yelled out “every man to himself” ….He was the only automatic weapon left (BAR) …All the others behind him and above him , ran screaming into the enemy, engaging in a cold steel fight….Ove 80 Germans were dead in and around thier position the next morning…F Co consisted of 28 men after the battle.

    Hello,

    My father, Melvin C Taylor, service number 35 294 453, was in Company L, 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division. He was wounded twice, on June 11th and August 5th 1944. Dad never talked about the war and passed away in 1996; hoping you may be able to shed some light on his service.

    Best,
    Mike
