I am looking for information about my brother, Spc. Robert L. Russell the

We haven't heard from Robbie in about a month now. He called a couple of
times from a satellite phone in Mosul, Iraq. The last time we talked he was
saying he might get to come home soon, then we were cut off, and I haven't
heard from him since. I really just would like to know that he is okay. And
if anyone in his outfit sees this and talks to him, I'd like to let him know
that his best friend, Tony, and I are planning to get married around the time
he said he would be home in November. And since he has to give me away and be
the best man, he has to be here. Any assistance you could offer would be
greatly appreciated. I miss my little brother very much. Thank you.

Subject: Alfred Lucius Galloway
Comments: Let me first thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service
to Our Great Country!!!!
I am a proud nephew of three WW2 veterans. Unfortunately, one of those vets
did not make it home to his family.
His name is Alfred Lucius Galloway. I have been unable to find much
information about Uncle "Bill" due to the fact that 1. I am a nephew and 2.
The national archives contacted my aunt after one of my previous queries and
advised her that the records we had requested had been destroyed in a fire.
I remember listening to my Grandmother, Ida Galloway tell stories about Bill.
She told me when I was small that he had been killed near Epinal, France. His
body was temporarily buried in France before being brought home to my family.
Just the other day, my aunt showed me a newspaper clipping that showed a
picture of Bill and stated that he had been killed in action. It went on to
state that Bill was serving with the Third I.D.!!!
I had been informed that Bill was in the Airborne and had transferred to the
Infantry. Which infantry unit he was in was VERY open to debate. Now, maybe I
have my answer.
Would you please help me in finding any information that is out there
regarding my Uncle Bill?
It's worth mentioning to any of your contacts that would have served in
(possibly) the 7th Infantry.
Bill was killed December 22nd, 1944. He was 19 years old and had reddish brown
hair. I know it is a long shot to hope that maybe some soldier that is still
out there could possibly have ANY memory of Bill, but maybe........
I am a Police Officer at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C. I have had the
pleasure to meet many veterans groups and many more individual veterans at the
Estate. I always try to shake hands with all the vets and thank them for their
service. I always tell them about my uncles (and cousins) who so proudly
served. I just wish I could tell them all a little more about my Uncle Bill.
If you're ever in the neighborhood, come see us.

Galloway is listed as a member of the 15th Infantry Regiment, KIA, in the
