Subject: Looking for Jack Winkler
Comments: I am helping in a family search for Jack (possible
nickname) Winkler. I have been told that he was part of the 3rd
Infantry Division and that he was awarded the French Forregere and
the Distinguished Unit Citation. According to the information that I
have he may have been from Michigan . I do have a picture of Jack if
you need it would help. The NPRC was unable to help me. Could you
please check your records for a J. Winkler or Jack Winkler?
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Subject: Camp Pike- EDWARD CLARK WEAVER
Comments: DEAR SIR -- I HAVE 2 PHOTOS OF MY FATHER AT CAMP PIKE AND
WILL SHARE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. HIS SERVICE RECORDS WERE LOST BY A
MOVING COMPANY SHORTLY BEFORE HIS DEATH, AND I NEED TO FIND SOME WAY
TO RESEARCH HIS ARMY SERVICE. YOU KNOW THAT MANY SERVICE RECORDS
WERE BURNED IN THE V.A. FIRE.
HIS NAME WAS EDWARD CLARK WEAVER BORN CHICAGO ILLINOIS 26 SEPT 1896.
THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES HAS RECORDS OF HIS REGISTRATION FOR THE WW-ONE
DRAFT IN LICKING COUNTY OHIO IN 1917, BUT HE LEFT THAT AREA, AND
MUST HAVE ENLISTED SOMEWHERE ELSE, MAYBE NEW YORK CITY? I HAVE THOSE
NARA RECORDS FOR HIS REGISTRATION BUT THEY DO NOT MAKE ANY SENSE.
SOME OF THE LICKING COUNTY RECORDS WERE ALSO BURNED.
I KNOW HE SERVED IN FRANCE, AND I BELIEVE HE CROSSED TO OR FROM
EUROPE ON A TRANSPORT SHIP NAMED "MARTHA WASHINGTON" -- WHERE HE
SWAPPED HATS WITH A SAILOR WHOSE LAST NAME WAS ALSO WEAVER. I HAVE
THAT "MARTHA WASHINGTON" HAT WITH THE SAILOR'S NAME INSIDE.
I BELIEVE MY FATHER WAS HONORABLY DISCHARGED AT CAMP PIKE. DO YOU
KNOW WHAT UNITS WERE SEPARATED THERE? ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR MY
RESEARCH EFFORTS? I WILL APPRECIATE ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER.

Subject: WW2 - Corporal Ira Bill Whitfield
Comments: I am seeking information about my father, Ira Bill
Whitfield, known as I.B., who served in North Africa in WW2. I have
only the attached photo of him, which shows, what appears to be,
Corpral stripes, but I see no insignia. My father was killed when I
was six years old, 51 years ago. All of my fathers family, brothers,
sisters, etc, have all passed away and I have no where to seek the
information I need. I do have my fathers dog tags which states that
his home, when he entered the service, was Russelville, Arkansas and
he was married to a woman named Evelyn (not my mother). His service
number is: "38295807". Next to the service number is a "T43" and
then an "O"
I have no idea what unit, brigade, company, or battery he might have
been in, just that he was mostly in North Africa. I know this is a
big order and I don't expect much, but I have to try. Seems as I get
older, I want to find out more about the man who was my father. A
day late and a dollar short, but I have to try.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. God Bless.

Comments: I served in the 123rd
Sig Bn in 1986-'88 during the cold war. I get a lot of flack from
sillyvillians without a clue who are derogatory toward me when I
state that I am a Veteran. They want to know what war I was in. When
I tell them that the cold war and that indeed any service is
exemplary, they laugh.
I heard that the US Army issues a certificate for those who served
during the cold war. Do you have any information on this certificate
and how to acquire one? Not that it really matters, because I am a
veteran, and I know that I served.

Subject: 3rd Infantry Division, U.S. Army request: George Mackenzie
Comments: Gentlemen, I am looking for information on my father's
service during World War II. He died in 1983. I know he was a
rifleman in Company K, 254th Infantry Regiment, 63rd Infantry
Division, Seventh Army. I know he was at some point redeployed to
the 100th Infantry Division. I believe he landed in Marseilles ,
France , or other, smaller port on December 9, 1944, attached to the
Third Infantry Division, Southern France.
Fought in the Battle of the Bulge, I believe. He received two Purple
Hearts, presumably for injuries sustained on Jan. 10, 1945, on March
30, 1945 and once more, in May, this time in Germany . I am not
certain of the injury locations on the first two. I also do not have
the exact date on the last injury. After the last injury, he was
sent ot England and then Massachusetts for about nine months or
rehab. We believe he was there through Christmas of 1946. I believe
this was an injury sustained when a Jeep in which he and three
others were riding went over a mine. Apparently two died immediately
and one was too far gone to save, though apparently my father tried.
I believe he was actually 17 when he enlisted. My father not only
never told his children he fought at the Battle of the Bulge, he
never told his wife, my mother.
Happy Veteran’s Day.

is easy. The 3rd Infantry Regiment not the 3rd Infantry Division is
called the "Old Guard.
