Subject: Jesse Hawkins, 15th Inf., 3rd Div., KIA Aug. 2, 1943
Comments: My brother, PFC Jesse Hawkins' records were destroyed in
fire at Military Records Center in St. Louis, MO. He was a jeep
driver (I think in a Cannon Co.) because he pulled cannons behind
his jeep. He had a good buddy in his outfit by name of (Gene?) Pinto
who was also a jeep driver and might have been from Calif. Jesse is
buried in the American Cemetery, Florence, Italy.
I was quite young when my brother was killed but I understand he
died in Sicily, Aug. 2, 1943. Any information anyone can provide
regarding the 3rd ID fighting 2 Aug 43 or before and information in
connection with PFC Jesse Hawkins would be greatly appreciated.

earned this medals. He didn't talk about the war much. I am trying

Comments: My father in law served with the 7th Infantry Regiment, 3d
Infantry Division during the Korean War. On March 31, 1951 he was
hit by shrapnel in his right hand. In August of that year he
received a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. My father in law passed
away before I met his daughter. I was looking at the medals my
mother in law has at her house and noticed the bronze star. She had
no idea what a bronze star was. I told her that it was a significant
medal. Apparently her husband didn't talk about Korea much. I
contacted the National Personnel Records Center hoping to get a copy
of the order telling what he had done to get the Bronze Star. I got
a letter back saying most of the records from that period had been
destroyed by a fire. Did anyone know Tom White? Do you know what he
did to get a Bronze Star? Is there anywhere that the records of the
3d Infantry Division are kept that I can contact to see if they have
the paperwork on this medal?

Comments: My father served in WWII in the 30th. He was captured
12/15/44. His records were lost in the fire at the archives. I have
been searching the web trying to find a site that may have a roster
listing soldiers assigned to the 30th. I know he was shipped to
Anzio as a reserve prior to the break out. He was captured in France
and transported to Stalag VIIA. He did not speak much about the
service. I have been trying to fill in the pieces.

Comments: I was in A Btry, 3rd AAA AW BN (SP)in North Korea from
near the end of Nov thru 24 Dec 1950. I dimly remember Task Force
Dog and I think we were part of some Regimental Combat team at one
time. I am trying to compile some of A Btry unit history and
battalion history but I do not remember any dates or places that we
were during that period. I have hazy recollections of some of our
actions during Nov & Dec of 1950 but nothing specific. I am hoping
to learn of specific actions of my unit during Nov & Dec 1950. All
the research I can find only mentions Marines, 7th Div and a few
other outfits but NOTHING about A Btry 3rd AAA AW BN and I know we
were in the Wonson, Hungnam and Yalu River area during that time.
The Marines I did see were pretty shot up and I don't remember
seeing any at all in the area after 10 Dec 1950. We played tag with
the Chinese right up thru Christmas eve 1950 but I can find NO
mention of that. We boarded an LST about 10:00 PM 24 Dec 1950. I
would appreciate any input about my outfit that can be furnished for

My brother, Tech 4 Nelson E Poyfair served in WW2 in the 3rd
Infantry Division, Battery A 39th Field Artillery Battalion from
April, 1943 to December, 1945. I am looking for any information on
his unit. According to history I've read, the 39th earned 10
campaign streamers. I can't seem to locate what these streamers are,
or any other information about their WW 2 experience.
I have about 100 photographs of soldiers and/or places and nearly
all of them are unidentified. I would love to be able to know where
these places are and as many of the names of the soldiers as
possible. Perhaps I have photos of a soldier that the family would
love to have.
Is there a list somewhere of the soldiers in his unit at that time?
I would very much appreciate any help that you might be able to give
Thanks so much...

Comments: Artell was my Uncle, I was only 6 yrs when he came home in
1946, he was just stopping on his way to the Walter Reed Hosp from a
head injury from combat in Germany, I remember his head was hurting
so bad he was taken to a local hosp where he never woke up from
surgery, his duffle bag was stolen on the train which had all
information on his war experience.
A few yrs ago I wrote the Dept of Military affairs, it wasn't long
that we received a box with 5 metals one was the silver star, but
nothing on his reason for receiving them, actually we know nothing
about his record, maybe your resources could help us. He was drafted
in 1941 and was still on active duty when he died in 1946.
