Subject: Lt. Leroy R. Weil
Comments: Dear Sir, I'm an Italian teacher and I'm doing a research
on WWII in my area. I live in Latina, once Littoria, vey close to
Anzio (only 15 Km S). In my research I met a Lt. Leroy R. Weil, from
Chicago, who dressed an helmet with the 3rd Inf.Div. insignia. The
picture was taken in May 1944, during the breakout... Is it possible
to have other information about him (i.e. the Regt, Co. etc. in
which he served)?
Thanks a lot for your help & your reply.

Jessie was in the 3rd Inf Div in Germany during WWII. His records
were lost through fire and water damage in the archives which held
his service records. I believe he served during a time in which his
brigade received, after the fact, a unit Bronze Star. If you have
any information which could point me in the right direction so I
could get paperwork which would allow me to have the bronze star
added to his grave marker, before he dies, I would be very grateful.

Subject: searching for grandpa
Comments: my name is Susanne Hülß, 37 years old and from Nürnberg. I
have your mailing-adress from your web-site. A good friend told me
about and I hoped to find my granddad in your Galery. An (white)
american Soldier, perhaps from the 3rd Division. He stayed in
Nürnberg 1945/46, perhaps a bit longer.
My grandma, Johanna Berta Nürminger (born: 1926 June 4th, lived in
Austraße 30 ), loved him ( he loved her, too) and gave birth to his
son Sigmund Georg (1947 February 9th).
One day he said, that he had to go back to the states and that he
will come back to to Germany to take her with him to the states.
When he was gone, my grandma was alone and had to survive. Her
familiy said, that she has to marry to be alive with her son. And so
she married Theo Hülß.
But Sigmunds real dad came back two times to find her, talked to her
family, but they blocked.
But my father wanted ever to know his real father. So he asked his
mum in an age of 20. She said, that she will give him a little
package, with a picture of him, a chain with his name and something
else, she wouldn't talk about. On his 21st birthday he asked about
that and she answered, that she has thrown it into rubbish. My
father never got this important information.
Johanna and Theo took the name of my fathers American dad (my
granddad) into grave.
I have pictures from my grandma and from my dad in younger years.
Theo said, that he looks like his father.
Perhaps we can find him through the fotos and a "Wanted-letter"? Can
you help me finding him through the Veteran-Sites or contacts?
P.S.: Excuse me, my English isn`t best. But I hope you`ll

My name is Chris Daudet and I have very fond memories of life in
Germany and the 3rd Infantry Division. I’m hoping that you can help
me with something. My father, retired General George Joulwan, had
two tours under the 3rd ID, once in the early 60’s and again in the
late 70’s. For as long as I can remember he had a music box that was
a statue of a dog faced soldier and played the dog faced soldier
song. My sisters and I loved this and still know the words to the
song by heart to this day. Unfortunately we are having a hard time
finding the music box and would love to replace it for him as it has
been one of those things that was just always in our home, no matter
where our home was. My father got the music box before he married my
mother so she has no idea where it came from or who made it. I
thought I would contact you to see if you have any ideas as to
how/where we might be able to find this great piece of our family

Subject: 9th Machine Gun Battalion memorial
Information is still being sought concerning a U. S. Third Division
World War I memorial whose location has been lost to modern memory.
The memorial is/was to the 9th Machine Gun Battalion, U. S. 3rd
Division, A.E.F. The memorial is a four-sided obelisk containing a
dedication to the 9th Machine Gun Battalion, with the name of
Captain Henry A. Barber, Jr. named as being the commander of Co.
"A," 9th Machine Gun Battalion.
The grandson of Captain Henry A. Barber, Jr., remembers having
visited the memorial in 1959 when he was twelve years of age and
with his father, Henry A. Barber, III. The grandson states that the
monument was off by itself and not near any town. Henry A. Barber,
IV (the grandson) says:
"It was off what I would call a very wide black top country road or
maybe even a country highway. It was really in the middle of nowhere
from what I recall. It was a four-sided obelisk with a dedication to
his unit with his name as the company commander. I recall a
dedication to a French unit as well and I had thought an English
unit but I have been told that the English were not in the area. I
know the French were though. As to the other two sides of the
obelisk I cannot remember. I was twelve years of age. I don't know
how tall it was but I would guess that the monument, which was
considerably taller than I was, was about 10 to 15 feet tall. The
obelisk was on a base. It was not a very wide base, in proportion to
the obelisk itself. It was not what I would call a gross or massive
base as I have seen under some other memorials.
The site itself was approximately 20 or 30 feet off the side of the
road and I remember it was in a clearing with what I would call a
copse of trees. I do not recall a river being nearby. Doesn't mean
much though, because I remember we had been all over that day. My
father had a very hard time finding the memorial.
"Henry Barber, Jr., was not promoted from Lieutenant to Captain
until the drive on the St. Mihiel Salient in September, 1918.
Although the 9th Machine Gun Battalion evidently fought in the Aisne
Defensive Campaign of 1918 and as a unit of the U. S. 3rd Division
defending against the German assault crossing of the Marne River on
15 July 1918, (Lt. Barber received the DSC for heroic actions) in
was in corps reserve for the St. Mihiel battle.
"I do not think the memorial is located anyplace in the Marne
Salient of 1918, i.e., that area comprised of Soissone, Reims and
Château-Thierry. The logical deduction here is tha the memorial
is/was probably in the area of the Meuse-Argonne, as this is where
the 9th MG Battalion fought its greatest battle and where it
received the most casualties. Could the memorial possibly be in the
vicinity of Cunel, where the U. S. 3rd Division fought?
Henry A. Barber, Jr., was not present as commanding officer during
the Meuse-Argonne fight, as he was evidently attending 2nd Corps
School. Anyone with information on this memorial can greatly aid the
preservation of American World War I military history by coming
forth with its past or present location.
I have a remote feeling that some French farmer became weary of
ploughing around this large memorial and long ago demolished it.
Very much appreciating your assistance in this matter, I am, Most
