Comments: Greetings,
I collect WWII helmets and recently acquired one with Third Inf. Div. markings on each side with a service number inside. I traced the service number to a William Leo Harvard who served from August 19, 1942 to July 15, 1946. Service #O-914464. I have been unable to find Mr. Harvard's name in the 1946 Divisional history roster. If you can locate any information on this vet, I am interested in the unit he served in and any other information about his WWII service for documentation about the history of the helmet.
Thanks in advance.

Pvt. Walter E. Kurtz

Comments: I am looking for information on a Pvt. who died of wounds in Korea on 14 November 1952. His name was Pvt. Walter E. Kurtz and he was from Holyoke, Massachusetts. According to the American Battle Monuments Commission (the Korean War Honor Roll), he was wounded by the enemy on 1 November 1952.

I am hoping to find out more about his unit, I only know the 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division in the US Army. I do have his service number, but as I need to contact his next-of-kin for authorization to get a copy of his service record, I am hoping that someone can help point me to more information about his unit and more about how he was wounded. you can contact me at

The 15th Infantry Regiment recorded 7 KIA/MIA/DOW between November 1, 1952 and November 6, 1952 in battles on Jackson Heights. (Chorwan Valley) 2 were identified as members of F. Company. It is likely that Pvt. Kurtz was a member of F. Company or another company in the 2nd Battalion.

Replacing Lost Military Medals

The following link for the National Personnel Records Center (St. Louis, MO), Military Awards and Decorations gives quite a bit of information of value for obtaining medals.
Requests for the issuance or replacement of military service medals, decorations, and awards should be directed to the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served. However, for Air Force (including Army Air Corps) and Army personnel, the National Personnel Records Center will verify the awards to which a veteran is entitled and forward
the request with the verification to the appropriate service department for issuance of the medals.
The Standard Form (SF 180), Request Pertaining to Military Records, is recommended for requesting medals and awards.

Requests for medals from the Army should be sent to:
Army Commander
U.S. Army Reserve Personnel Center
9700 Page Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63132-5100

Editor Note: this link also has very good information on USA military cemeteries and grave markers.

Subject: Looking for info on Andrew N. Hilty, 3rd Infantry W.W.II

Comments: Greetings from a grand-nephew of Andrew N. Hilty.  Andrew, my grandfather's older brother, was a PFC, tag #36956185, 30th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division and died March 15, 1945. My mother relates how, as a young girl, she overheard her aunts having a heated discussion after learning of Andrew's death.

[Here's the erroneous info] They were angry because he'd been a part of a 600-man (not sure about that number) group inserted behind German lines to probe defenses and gain intel for the upcoming invasion of Normandy. The women felt his life had been wasted.

I honored his sacrifice this Memorial Day 2005 and as a result I found I was eager to find out more than I already know. My line of the family (from my Grandfather to me) have lost touch with the Hilty's so I am turning to his Division for whatever info I can be given.

All I have been able to find is his listing on the American Battle Monuments Commission. He is buried at Lorraine American Cemetery St. Avold, France. He is from Illinois.

If anyone has information regarding his mission, the details of his death, his company and the sort of weaponry he might have been carrying behind the lines, I would be grateful. I looked at some of the photos posted and grew excited at the few from his Regiment! I have not been shown photos of him so without a caption listing his name I would not be able to identify him.

Thank you for whatever assistance you and your folks can provide as I work to make his memory alive to my children.

Subject: Obersalzberg negative films

Comments:  My grand-father was in the Leclerc 2eDB, in early may 1945 he was in Berchtesgaden, he was one of the first to see the Obersalzberg. He told me a strange story about negative films all over the ground.
Have you heard something about that? Do you think what kind of films it was?
I've read there was "a Filmarchiv building, which served as storage for the films that were shown in the Berghof, Theaterhalle, and SS-Kaserne".
Thanks for your help,
J-B Chadelle

P.S: If you need precisions or questions to give me an answer, I can ask them to my grand-father.

Subject: 3rd Armored Fort Knox Kentucky

Comments: Did you know my dad? George (W) Theiss, all I have is a picture of the 3rd Replacement Battalion Fort Knox, Kentucky Aug 1943. Probably where he had basic training. I think he was discharged in New Jersey, may have joined there as well. The best I can figure he was around 18,19 or 20 when he enlisted. He was tall Brown/Black hair, thinish, and would have had a strong Brooklyn Queens, New York accent. His childhood friend enlisted with him and was KIA as soon as they landed on the beach. I need to know who his friend was. He pushed my dad aside and died for him. They both enlisted I think in New Jersey on the terms they would stay together in the service. They both were orphans and were like brothers. He served in WW11 and Korea, I am blessed to have his metals. He drove a truck with food, soldiers and ammunition throughout Europe under blackout conditions in France, Belgium and carried a gun are all I know. It was mentioned that he was a life guard sometime in the service as well. I have two group pictures with names and some addresses on the back of one there is only 33 names. The other picture hangs in a sealed frame, if necessary would consider opening framed picture to see if there are names there. He was at Normandy. After my parents married he went all the way back to New York to pick up the pictures, so I am sure the man who saved his life is in it somewhere.
E-mail me with any information regardless of how small. I can verify names when you write. My dad passed away this January. There is this deep need to know anything I can about him in those years and hope to find out the name of the man that saved his life. This is so very important to me, information even if it seem unimportant you might help me finish a puzzle about his life.

With Best Regards and thanks in advance,
P.S. Wright

Comments: My grandfather, Robert Olin Roney served in the Army during WW2.
He passed away in 1954, and I know barely anything about him let alone his military record.
I know that he attained the rank of PFC because it is on his grave stone. He served in a Sanitary Plat. I don't remember the number. My grandmother told me that he knew Audie Murphy, so I assumed that he was in the 3rd Infantry Division.
I would like to find out if he was indeed in the 3rd Infantry Division, what his fighting record was. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
