My Dad, Sgt. Kenneth Kolkebeck 405, Co.I, 1st Plt. is alive and well in Salisbury, NC. He waited until his 90's to talk about his war experiences but when he does the memories come back strong. He wishes all well that are still with us and he misses those who aren't.

Hello:

I am researching the area around Mariadorf, the coal mine and slag pile at nearby Mariagrube, Germany in 1944-45.



As I understand it, the 406th was in the area briefly in early November 1944 relieving elements of the 30th Division.



I would like to read the late October-early November S-3 journal of the 406th to see if there are any references to the area at all during this period. I would be ESPECIALLY interested if there are any comments/memories about this time in the 406th in your archives. Most of what I have found so far focus on the period later in the month of November or even later.



Can you help?



I will add that once the 117th infantry took this area on November 16th 1944, my father’s outfit (the 978th Engineer Maintenance Company) pulled into the mine at Mariagrube.



Thank you.
