His Unit was the 88th Infantry Division; there were three regiments, 349th, 350th and 351st. The division was activated at Camp Gruber, OK, 15 Jul 42; after training, staged at Camp Patrick, Henry, VA; departed Hampton Roads P/E, VA, 6 Dec 43; arrived North Africa, for training, 15 Dec 43; arrived Naples, Italy, 6 Feb 44; entered the line, releaved 36th ID at Monte Castellone, 26 Feb 44; (following a series of operations), the division pushed thru Rome, 4 Jun 44 (two days prior to D-Day in France), which put a damper on the operation...taking Rome.
You mention a three month stay starting July-44, at the 105th Station Hospital.
On 5 July 44, the division took up defensive positions near Pomerance; took over the 1st Armored Division zone, the 349th and 350th capturing Voltera the next day; the division halted before the Arno River, 17 Jul 44; division then clearedthe region below the Arno in heavy combat, 20-25 July 44 which completed the division's operations for July 44.
Since he was hospitalized during July, it must have been from one of the operations described above, after which he was probably moved off the line, and back to Rome.
Rome-Arno, 22 Jan 44 / 9 Sept 44; North Apennines, 10 Sept 44 / 4 April 45; Po Valley, 5 April 45/ 2 May 45.
From these dates, we can deduce that he wwas not in the line for the last two campaigns.
2298 KIA 9225 Wounded 258 Died of Wounds.
Excuse this brief overview.
If he had any experience with the V-A, I recommend that you contact the nearesr regional office, for they would be expected to have hard copy relative to his wounding and hospitalization.
