In a raffle a few months ago, I won an Ozarks 102nd Infantry WWII fatigue blouse owned by a man named Bleish. While I can't seem to find mention of him specifically, it was important to me to learn more about the division, because when one wears something like this, one should be able to talk about it.

While I'm here, I also wanted to put out a thank you for your service. I can't imagine what life would be like without a WWII victory. Our country has many failings, but freedom does ring and it's all thanks to brave men and women like you. Thank you.

I have numerous photos and souvenirs from my Uncle Sgt. Ralph Maritato, of his tour during WW2, serving in the 102nd, Ozarks. How may I post photos and search for men that served with him? Thank You

My father, Myron Krochak, served with 102nd Infantry Division,"Ozarks", 407th Infantry Regiment, Headquarters Company. He was a Corporal, classified as a T/5, occupational specialty Field Lineman, and participated in the Central Europe and Rhineland campaigns.
He received the Bronze Star for heroism in Germany on 23 February 1945. The action for which he was cited involved remaining in fast-moving, waist-deep water under sniper fire for a prolonged period of time, while running a communications wire across a river. This was especially remarkable because he could not swim and had always been extremely uncomfortable in water.
My father related that on a separate occasion, he was in a tree stringing communication wire when he heard German voices directly below him. He looked down to see his own rifle leaning against the tree trunk, with several German soldiers standing around it. He was berating himself for leaving the rifle below when he realized that luckily the soldiers were only looking for someone to whom to surrender.
Late in the war, when the American and Soviet armies met, he was assigned to a Soviet unit as a liaison/interpreter, as he could speak and understand Ukrainian. My father told us after we had grown up that the Soviets had shot all their prisoners, even those who had surrendered under a flag of truce. We have some photographs showing him posing with Soviet soldiers at Heinrichshorst Castle.

My Uncle was in the 407th Infantry Regiment, 102nd Infantry Division. He was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. Does anyone still living remember Frederick (Freddie) C. Slonine (sometimes spelled or pronounced Slonina). He died in action 12/1/1944. Thanks if anyone gets back to me.

Sincerely
