SGM Cooper was the rifle marksmanship team instructor, of which I was a
SGM Cooper was a World War II veteran with the 3rd Infantry, I believe having
served in Italy (I think) and Europe. He was obviously a combat veteran as he
did have his Combat Infantryman's Badge. Unfortunately SGM Cooper was killed
in an auto accident in Macon GA in the mid 1980's.
Alumni from our school from 1966 through 1986 are putting together a Super

deserved for serving not only his country but the hundreds of JROTC cadets

Subject: L Lee. Thompson, information
Hello. About a year ago I was looking for information about my grandfather. I
received some help and I was very grateful. But now when I try to find
information on the Area he fought I have trouble finding substantial
information. So I have decided to write a book someday about the campaign.
What I am asking for is anybody with a story, information, good books to
research or anything that would be relevant to the fight around the Colmar
pocket. If you would I would be grateful. Also if anybody knows where Where I
can find any information on the 3rd Army veterans association so I can expand
my search would be helpful. An finally, If anybody has information about L
Lee. Thompson, I would be also grateful. He served in CO K, 30th Infantry
Regiment and was wounded at the Colmar Pocket on JAN 23,1945. I believe I have
asked for information from here before but I'm hoping somebody who didn't it
would know anything. Thank you all very much for your help.

Subject: Danny Sacco-411th Inf Reg Company "D"
Comments: My dad was with the 411th Infantry Regiment of the 103d during WWII.
He landed in France on Oct 20 1944. He did not leave Europe until Feb 1947. He
was awarded a Combat Infantry Badge and Bronze Star, yet he never spoke about
his experiences. He obviously saw combat with the decorations he received.
Does anyone have any information on "D" company of the 411th between Oct 20
1944 and the end of the war?
