How do you find out what regiment someone was in? I know Prvt Henry Barry left boston on July 1st, he did basic training in South Carolina then a camp in Mass. He was wounded in Germany, a shell in his eye,left him blinded. he had surgery in Paris and then went to new cantonment hospital then to valley forge. he received 3 purple hearts on for a sharpnel wound to stomach, and one for leg, and the other for Blindness. he was in ward one at that hospital. then later he went to old farms convalescent hospital in avon conn. At the time of his wound he had 2 buddies with him he called them smitty and stubby. i believe he was in a unit in duren germany at some point. also he was near the peninsular of crozon. Was wondering how to find out what regiment he was from? can anyone shed some light on this .
