Someone recently referred you to Nick Russo of the 41st Infantry Division Association. Nick was area representative until he died SIX YEARS AGO!!! Nick was a veteran of the division's 167th Field Artillery Battalion so it's anybody's guess as to whether he may have been able to help with info on your subject. Likewise, you were referred to Jake Benshoof of the Society of the Ninth Army Corps for information re the 186th Infantry. Jake is still around. He founded the society but has no info on the 186th, inasmuch as most of the 41st Division's association with Ninth Corps was prior to the division being activated for service in World War II.
