Subject: SGM Edward Cooper

I am a 1980 graduate of Lanier (Central) High School in Macon Georgia. Lanier had one of the nations largest US Army Junior ROTC programs in the nation. One of our Army Instructors was Sergeant Major Edward Cooper, USA Ret. SGM Cooper was a senior instructor at Lanier from approximately 1970 into the mid 1980's. SGM Cooper was the rifle marksmanship team instructor, of which I was a member.

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 Reunion this year, including a web page honoring our instructors as well as an event this July. We would of course like to give SGM Cooper the respect he deserved for serving not only his country but the hundreds of JROTC cadets over the years he was at Lanier.

We have no information on his service record with the 3rd, and am hereby requesting any information possible for our project. Please let us know if you can assist. Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.

Comments: I am sending you this email in the hope that you or your organization may be able to assist me to assist a friend in locating a family member who was a member of the 3rd Infantry Division in Germany during WW II.
I believe all they have is his name, SSN and a recollection that he was officer rank decorated for bravery.
Any suggestions on how to proceed with this search will be appreciated.
Here is the information the nephew provided. I agree with you opinion on SSN's but this one is unique and I thought it might increase our chances. Apparently, years ago, SSN's were in a different format, you may have known this but I sure did not. So here is the information:
Name: Harold Homer Horne (deceased)
SSN: 0013-22-922
Born: Berlin NH, DOB unknown
First Lieutenant
Enlisted 1942
Training at Fort Bragg
Served in Germany 1944-45 in the 2nd or 3rd Infantry

The family and myself greatly appreciate your effort in this matter.

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.
