Theron P. Snell Ph.Dtpsnell@gmail.comAlbuquerque
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. Theron P. Snell, Ph.D tpsnell@gmail.com

Thank you for keeping this history alive.

Dad (Frank ) 406-HQ2 who passed in 2003 served as historian and secretary/treasurer for many many years and to say Mom was not a big part of that would be a mistake!!

I grew up in a NY development where many of these well deserving of honor WW2 veterans lived. One of these was Mr. Carmine Corretti. He lived across the street. My family being Italian lived in Italy during the WW2 and I grew up with their stories of the war and its horrors. Mr. Corretti and my father were friends. I looked up his name and found him. He told me about his D-Day beach assault and I was always in awe and so respected him for what he did. I cannot express enough how thankful now I am to having known him and miss those days when our families would on occasion get together. God Bless all those then and now who served to protect our USA.

I would like to thank everyone for their information on this brave division. I'm a history major, I've always found World War Two history quite fascinating. To be living in a country where men like these fought thousands of miles away from home for a threat so serious, it might have possibly consumed the world. I'm currently writing a short script for a class. I found that this site and the story of the identification bracelet inspiring. I do encourage for all to honor and remember these years of heroism. Forget Batman, Wolverine and those comic heroes. These guys were real. They fought for a real cause. I hope to honor them in my short story.

Douglas E. Scottd.english50@hotmail.comTacomaUSA
I was a member of the 327th Engineer Combat Battalion on 23 May 1945. I took part in the ceremonies and reception of the Russian Army Officers. We were the Americas to meet the Russian Army. The Company Commanding Officer was CPT Paul F. Clements. The Battalion Commander was LTC Robert Anderson. The Division Commander was MG Frank A. Keating. Is there anyone out there who was also part of this event ? I would enjoy hearing from someone. I was also in the 149th Amphibious Engineers on D-Day. I landed on Omaha Beach at 0600.
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.

Father in the Ozark Division
Janet Wencerwencer@sympatico.caToronto, ON, Canada
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.

Frank Fischersunsetllc@live.comKey Largo, Fl. USA
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.

My uncle John Hudak, Jr. served with the 102nd and was awarded a Bronze Star for action in 1945. The newspaper article says, "Rudolstadt - In a Regimental ceremony on June 13 T/Sgt. John Hudak, Jr. Louisville, Ohio decorated by Col. B. F. Hurless, Atlanta, Ga. 406th Inf. commanding officer. T/gt. Hudak was awarded the Bronze Star for 'courage and exemplary leadership'...and he...'neutralized the enemy position and enabled his unit to proceed and take the objective.' This action took place between April 10-12. When his platoon leader became a casualty T/Sgt. Hudak took command and outflanked an enemy position, killing three and wounding two krauts thus lifting the fire that had halted his platoon advance.

David R. King. david.king@pcs.k12.va.usCollinsville/VA/USA
Attached is an article I wrote for this past Memorial Day that might be of interest. I am interested in sharing information about the soldiers and units of the 102nd Infantry Division, particularly Echo Company, 405th Infantry. >>> MARTINSVILLE BULLETIN, MARTINSVILLE, VIRGINIA MEMORIAL DAY Monday, May 28, 2012 By LIEUTENANT COLONEL DAVID R. KING, U.S. ARMY (RETIRED ) I never knew my cousin, Private First Class James K. Robinson. He was killed in action during World War II, one of the 291,557 U.S. battle deaths in that war. In the 1960s a relative who knew of my interest in military history gave me a wallet-size photo of him in uniform, the flag sent to the family in his memory, and his Purple Heart medal. For years I knew very little about James Robinson except that he was buried somewhere in the Netherlands. The photo was probably taken during basic training because there is no insignia on his uniform to give me an idea of his unit or branch. I knew only that he was a soldier. His service and sacrifice in World War II remained a mystery to me for nearly a half century. Around Veterans Day in 2010, I was able to find him on ancestry com as a special opportunity to research veterans in the family. From that search I learned that he was in fact buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial near the town of Margraten. A search of the American Battle Monuments Commission website gave me his exact location: Plot B Row 5 Grave 18. That search also gave me his regiment, the 405th Infantry Regiment, and his division, the 102nd Infantry Division, the Ozarks. In a copy of the division history I found and purchased on the Internet, I located his name and his home address listed on the roster of Company E of the 405th Infantry Regiment. The book also provided an account of the division's operations in World War II. Like most U.S. infantry divisions in World War II, the 102nd was involved in some of the heaviest fighting in Europe. In fact, the Ozark Division was engaged in combat from September 1944 right up to the end of the war in May 1945. I learned from other sources that Echo Company is credited with being the first unit to capture a German ME262 - the first jet fighter used in combat. I've been told that jet is on display at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum with the notation that it was captured by Company E, 405th Infantry. After so many years of wondering, I learned a great deal in a very short time about Private First Classc. James Robinson. I had learned the details of his unit's service, but I never expected to find a person who served in the same unit and who had gone through the same experiences he had endured. In January 2011, I attended a conference for Army Junior ROTC instructors in Myrtle Beach, S.C. On a whim one evening, I did a web search on Company E, 405th Infantry. What I found was a real surprise. In a 2008 newspaper article titled, "Latta Veteran Receives Citadel Degree 64 Years Later," I read about Leonard Cohen, a member of the Citadel Class of 1944, the "Class that Never Was." Cohen and his entire class were drafted in the fall of 1943. As a result, their graduation which would have taken place in the spring of 1944, never happened. Ironically, I remembered passing signs on the way to Myrtle Beach for Latta, S.C. I looked up Leonard Cohen on the Internet and tried calling the number listed with no success. When I returned home, I sent a letter to the address listed for him. A few weeks later, I received a letter from his son telling me that he had moved his father to a retirement home in Atlanta, Ga. He arranged for me to talk to his father a couple of days later. In March 2011, I was able to visit Leonard Cohen and his son, Robert, in Atlanta. Leonard Cohen's memory was very clear. He could recall details about his service that coincided with what I had read in the division history. In fact, he could distinctly remember seeing the ME262 in the hanger the day it was captured, and he could remember the day the division made contact with the Red Army. He could also remember going into combat on April 15, 1945. That date stuck in his mind because it was the day he learned that President Franklin Roosevelt had died three days earlier, on April 12. The 12th was one day after his birthday on 11 April 1924. When the war ended, Staff Sgt. Leonard Cohen returned home to Latta to work in the family clothing store, but he never went back to the Citadel to earn his degree. In 2008, the members of the class of 1944 who did not graduate were given their degrees. In early May of this year while I was attending a meeting at Fort Pickett, I passed by a sergeant whose unit patch caught my eye. Although subdued, I couldn't miss its distinct design - an "O" surrounding a "Z" and an arc around the lower half of the Z - the patch of the Ozark division. I understood the unit had been deactivated right after World War II in 1946. When I asked the sergeant about the patch, the he told me the 102nd Infantry Division had been reactivated in 2007. It is now headquartered at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. ("Ozark" country ), as part of the 80th Training Command. The 94th Infantry Division at Fort Lee, and the 100th Infantry Division at Fort Knox, Kentucky, are the two other divisions that make up the 80th Training Command. After more than six decades, the Ozarks division is back. On Memorial Day, I will take time to remember my cousin, Private First Class James Robinson. I will also remember Staff Sgt. Leonard Cohen, who passed away three weeks ago. I realize I was very fortunate to meet Leonard Cohen. The opportunity to hear firsthand about his experiences in World War II and specifically Company E, 405th Infantry Regiment, gave me a personal glimpse into the life of someone I never knew. The odds of that happening were nearly impossible, but for some reason I was given that chance. It may be as a means to remember and help others remember the services of that generation and the veterans of all our wars. April 15, the day Leonard Cohen remembers going into combat, is also the day James Robinson was killed in action. Born in November 1925, he was 19 years old. Three weeks later, Germany surrendered. James Robinson and Leonard Cohen deserve to be remembered on Memorial Day.
