Oh my do you have your ducks in a row. I was waaay off. My uncle, Frank Moskus, was with the same group that Fielding Tucker mentions in his article on the "MEMORIES OF WAR" web page. Evidently my uncle was a Platoon Sgt. with I Company, 143rd Regiment of the 36th Infantry Division. My uncle was also at Salerno and Africa, according to my mother a guy named Bill Mauldin (SP) also knew him while he was with Stars and Stripes. I tried to get my uncle to tell me about the war after I met a retired genetleman and officer at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas who new my uncle. But my uncle would not say a word about the war. I know, from newspaper arcticles that he received the Croix de Guerrre for something, but I have no idea whether it was because of what happened at the Bouxhof Farm or some other incident, near Ribeauville. The man I met in Texas described an entirely different situation, so I have the feeling that my uncle was in yet another outfit during the war, I could easily be wrong because the newspaper articles I have were written during the war and seldom named specifics.
Thanks for the reply Louie! May you and your family have a most pleasant Christmas.
