Re: 347th Reg.Co.F, WWII
Thanks, U Bob, but I failed to mentioned that
my dad, Melvin R. Whyte was a Cpl. in the 347
reg., Co.F, Cp.Eng. out of Camp Cairborne,LA
under the 1st Brig. of Col.Harry Hulen and
Col.John W. oehman. This was a general-special engineer service group. Brig.,Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, was commanding
gen. 82nd of Camp Cairborne, LA. I do have someone stated that this is with the 18th reg. and they did not go in on Omaha Beach
but my dad stated always that he was on the third wave of Omaha Beach.
