Comments: I just recently found information about my
father's (Louis Medvinsky) time in the Army during
World War II. He never discussed it when he was
alive but I just found his discharge papers in some
of my mom's old files. He was in the 39th Field
Artillery BN 3 Division. Is there any way to get
more information about his service time or to even
contact anyone who might have been in his platoon.
Any assistance you can give me would be greatly

Subject: Salerno Rest Camp 1943-1944
Comments: Dear Sirs, As an historian of the
September 9, 1943 Salerno landings, I am aware that
the British 10th Corps set up a large Rest Camp in
the Salerno district named Torrione, to benefit its
troops in the course of the Italian Campaign. I am
now in dire need of any kind of material – but
especially photographs possibly taken by those who
were hosted there to rest for a short period of
time, before going back to the frontline. Your help
in this respect will be highly appreciated.
With best thanks,
Dr Angelo Pesce

Comments: Hello Sir:
I came across your web site and thought you may be
of help. My father, William Francis Casey served
with the 3rd ID during WWII. He was from Albany, NY.
I know he was at Anzio and moved with the division
into France. (As best as I know.) However I do not
know what regiment he served with, and do not know
what other information is available for his service
record. He was a recipient of the Bronze Star for
bravery and received the North Africa and European
Battle Campaign awards. He was sent home due to a
bad case of malaria; the Army did not think he would
last a year, but he lived to 82 years and had seven
kids; myself being the last.
Thanks for any information you may have.
Daniel P Casey
Note: Pfc William F. Casey is listed as a member of
the 30th Infantry Regiment in the book "History of
the 3rd Division in WWII" on page 512.

Comments: I am trying to get Bronze Star Medal
engraved on the Grave of James C Scott who is buried
at The Brig Gen Doyle Cemetery in Wrightstown NJ. I
have the medal, and A newspaper Article from the
Bergen Record July 13 stating he received the award,
also it was after his separation from the service.
he served with 73rd tank battalion and was awarded
the medal for bravery on a strategic slope in Kumwha.
The cemetery says there is so much fraud. I have
been searching for the records in St Louis, but I
have had no response. If anyone remembers or has any
info I would greatly appreciate it. The paper was
notified by New Jersey Military District Kearney. I
don't think it exists anymore.

Comments: Good Evening,
I'm hoping you can be of some help. I have been
trying to find for quite some time now exactly how
my great grandfather was involved in WWI. I know he
entered the Army on 5/6/1917 and was discharged in
Nov. 30th 1918. I know he was severely wounded -
actually, he was shot in the right shoulder. More to
the story goes that he got amnesia and forgot who he
was. His name was Fotios Voyatzis but at some point
either before or during the war he became Fred Mease.
I even have his serial number. No one can help me
I've called every archive, library and repository.
Hopefully you can provide some insight.
Thanks for any help.

Comments: Dear Sir, My name is arnaud SERUS. I am
30 years old and live in the north of France near
the town of Lille. I have always been a huge fan of
US army and USA since I'm a little boy.
Consequently I often look for M1 Helmet of ground to
memorize what heroes does for the French and for the
entire world. Yesterday in a militaria show I met an
old man of 70 years old. He is a WW2 collector. He
has sold his collection to Normandy museum because
he will die soon of cancer. But some few things
still in his possession. After discussing and
present my self he sell me an M1 helmet that he
found himself in 1947 in the village of 'Le muy".
So an m1 which participate to provence landing of
the 3ID in "Cavalaire" and the fight of Provence.
This helmet is a Mc cord of February 1943. So I
think he could have belong to a soldier who
participate to Italy campaign before.
A special helmet coz the insign count 4 white stripe
but only the blue stripes were paint. on the right
side only, the soldier put "3. I. D". in white paint
under the insign.
The litle boy of seven found it with only one
Let me join you some pictures, perhaps a veteran
will recognize his helmet or a friend's one?
Thank you very much for your help, Best regards
