101st abn div 2/11th field artillery
Awesome pictures. Beautifully scanned. Thank you.
Thank you Lorraine!
Do you have any other 9th Armored photos? Specifically interested in 27th Armored Infantry. My uncle was in that unit, KIA 12/17/44.
I have over 500 additioanl shots of the 9th AD. How can I help?
I’m very interested in the 9th A.D. photos as my dad was a Liaison pilot with the 73rd Field Artillery. Were these photos from J.Malan Heslop by any chance?
How may I see these 9th A.D. photos?
hi, do you have any images of the 8th infantry/121st infantry regiment ?
Awesome pictures. My dad was with the 8th Air Force in WW2 and he had some really great stories to tell. I am a former Marine ( Viet Nam). Would like to thank all vets for serving.
anyone have any photos please of John LLoyd Silver. US marine,. ww2. born 1922. died 1943. ( he was my grandfather)
Hi. Do you have any images of “The push” before The Battle of the Bulge WWII? OR/AND I company commanded by Radzwich? Looking for pictures overall of 101st Army Yankee Division, 26th Div., Company I in the Pacific
Remarkable photos. My maternal grandfather was in company C of 777th Tank Battalion. I see you have the roster of the 272d attached to 69th ID. Wondering if you have roster of men in company c, 777th?
impressed!!!, my dad was a sargeant in the 45th division (180th infantry f company ) eager for any info!! . or pen pal with knowledge
I would love to find more on my us marine grandfather of pics. But lost where else yo go
Good photos, my dad was on 7th wave on D day at Normandy / Omaha beach head. Do not have a great deal of information on his unit or company other than I believe 3rd Army artillery. He was not one to talk of the war or battles in France and Germany. Do you have any suggestions as to how to go about finding more details of his landing and advance into that part of the E.T.
Researching Army is a bit more difficult than Navy and USMC but I find good luck with tracking down army serial numbers (ASN) and running the info through fold3.com. I don’t mind giving it a try if you want to share his name and some basic facts with me.
How may I view your 9th Armored .Div. photos?
James – I would have to physically scan the negatives. I only scanned a small handful for this post.
I do not mind sharing information if what you need is something I can provide. My Dad passed away 1-8-13 and left much of his military tailings with another family member but I will do my best to get needed data. What do you need? His name: Clifford S. Jackson, “Dog Tag” no. is 31051282 T41-42 0.
There is also an address of his mother on tag: Susannah Jackson, 51 Wilson St., Prov. R.I.
I own the photo postcard “Dell”
just below it
I must have purchased from you?
Which one? It’s possible that I forgot to remove one?
Ah, the African American soldier? Oh yes, I did sell that one. I totally forgot to remove it. Very sorry.
Do you have any pictures of the rainbow division from WW2?
The Pilot with the kill markings all over his P51 is Major Leonard “Kit” Carson, of the 357th FG. The Mustang he is standing on is is named “Nooky Booky IV”
