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.

Just decided to do a little research about my grandfathers, Roger Leigh Mulloy Jr., war experiences and found this website about his division. My grandfather unfortunately passed away recently and will be missed.

Hello and thank you so much for this web-site. I am the son of Milton Fischer and I would like to thank all the Rodgers Raiders for their bravery and help in winning the war and freedom. In all my life I never ever heard my father talk up another man.... Except Roy! He told me Roy was the bravest badest man he has ever met, period. He talked up every man in the unit. I wish the men of today had the same integrity. I tried talking him into telling his story before he died as this site requested. But I guess it was too hard for him. He told me lot's of stories when he was younger, but talked about it less as he got older. He used to smile when he told stories, then as he got older he would tear up. I'm sorry to all I could not get him to open up. It would have been nice to have some history for everyone. My heart goes out to everyone involved. Thanks and good luck to all.
