Comments: My father was a Marine with the 3rd Infantry Davison and
was aboard the USS Fondelac during War War II. We are told that all
of the records of this Infantry Unit and the records of the USS
Fondelac were destroyed in a fire??? My family and I would be
interested to see any pictures, records, etc of this ship or this
unit. If you have any information, websites, etc that could help us,
we would greatly appreciate it.
Webmaster's Note: The ship most likely was the USS Fondulac and
Jasper Ellis may have been a member of the 3rd Marine Division not

Subject: WWII 3rd ID, 15th Infantry R, Company L - Kenneth Hoose
Comments: Seeking information on any aspect of S Sgt Kenneth Hoose's
(my grandfather's) WWII service. I am interested in any general
information that would fill in the picture of his units' activities,
but would be particularly grateful to be contacted by anyone with a
personal recollection or memorabilia involving him.
He enlisted in 1943, apparently trained with the 65th ID (inferred
from shoulder patch in family photo), and in late July 1944 departed
for Europe, arriving in August. To the best of our knowledge he
served in L Company, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division
while he was in theater, possibly for the duration. It is not clear
to me whether he participated in the Rome-Arno campaign or joined
his unit in the Rhineland. He was wounded twice, the first time 24
Dec 1944 near Bennwihr, France, the second ~25 Jan 1945, possibly
also in the Colmar pocket. At the time of his wounding he was Pfc.
At some point prior to his return to the US in Mar 1946 he was
promoted to Staff Sergeant. He was a light truck driver and as a
platoon sergeant supervised ~25 men in a light car Co.

Comments: I am looking for information on Oren Rynearson, a second
cousin, who served in WW1, born 4th Oct 1896. In the 1920 Census he
was a sergeant at Camp Pike, Arkansas, and was a WW1 veteran, so I
believe he was probably with the 3rd Infantry Division at the time.
In 1924 he was with the 6th Field Artillery as a 2nd Lt. If you have
anything n his military service I would be most grateful. Many

from German fire at Anzio. Wayne also had a French stone building
fall on him after it was hit by indirect fire - resulting in his
evac to England where he woke from a coma to find he had a broken
I have had the honor of representing Wayne as he progressed through
the Department of Veterans Affairs system. He is now 100% service
connected disabled and his wife has CHAMPVA coverage. He obtains all
of his medical care through the VA, and has an electric scooter to
HOWEVER - he STILL does not have a Purple Heart. Two requests to the
Board for Correction of Military Records in St. Louis have been
formally denied on the basis of "no official military medical
records of combat wound(s)".
If ANYONE reading this witnessed Wayne being wounded, or knows of
anyone still alive who witnessed Wayne being wounded, or even knew
shortly after the fact that he was wounded (such as remembered his
bandages, etc.) PLEASE contact me so that we can get a "buddy
statement" from that person or persons in support of his request for
a Purple Heart. I have contacts with Senator Lugar's office and the
offices of representatives Hill, Ellsworth, and Buyer. All are
willing to help, but we must go back to the Board with something
better than our current circumstantial evidence.
Thank you for whatever help you can provide to Wayne.
By the way, we took Wayne and his son Kenny to DC on the first
Hoosier Honor Flight on 12 November 2008.

Edwin "Buddy" Melvin Steger. We have some of his Army papers; he was
in WWII, infantry, Headquarters Company Corps, 3rd Infantry
Division. I found paperwork for him to receive a Bronze Star Medal
(dated 4/8/1945) but my husband knew nothing about this and I cannot
find any information on the internet. The other recipients in the
order are Robert E. Grice and John W. Drought. The order is signed
by Major General Milburn.
There were some other items in an envelope, and we're trying to
piece together where he was in the war, where he fought, where he
would have picked up some of these items, etc.

Comments: I am searching for anyone that was stationed at Ft Mc
Clellan, Al, or taking Basic Training there especially during
Jul-October, 1980. There was a Chemical Warfare School spill while
we were there. We found dead birds around base. A friend at the
school at an earlier time, says that always indicated a spill, and
that is sometimes how they would know for sure. About 200 of us on
base, to include those in 2nd Battalion Basic Training came down
ill. It appeared to be like a flu, running high temperatures
however. I believe that is the cause of Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis,
Diabetes, High Blood Pressure for us. Please contact me and let me
know about any relative stationed there or yourself if serving
there, with your own health problems. So far the Army and the VA
deny anything associated to it. I have lupus and high blood
pressure. Thank you
