78th Infantry Co 311 Names of GIs on Poster
My dad left me an 8 x 11 poster with a green beetle wearing a helmet with ligtning bolts for arrows.I finally found the website with this same image showing it was the 78th Infantry called "Ligtning".
The following men signed this poster - does anyone recognize any of the names?
The poster is signed by several GI's and I will spell them the best I can from their handwriting:

From what I have been able to piece together thus far, Daddy was first assigned to Co L 311 Regiment, 78th Infantry as he was seen in the Medic Dental - age 21 (had to be 1942) before he went overseas. He was then in Co L 175th Regiment, 29th Infantry beginning of 1943.
