Re: 347th Reg.Co.F, WWII
Thanks, I am please as my dad always talked
about D-Day and how it sure was a mess esp.
cuz he couldn't even swim and they set the
men too far out and he dogged paddle in. He
said that it was a mircle anyone got to shore.He said there was not many men left
under him when he made it to the cliffs. I
have articles about them getting left behind
at NY when they were going over to England and they caught a ride with other units and
got there before the other reg. did. They went by Iceland and Scotland into England.
And on to Omaha Beach after training at England and then to Chairboug, France and
Paris. They blow up Bridges and built bridges
in and around Saurbrucken basin and Luxemburg, Belgium. He got hurt jumping from
a fast moving train at the beginning of the
Battle of Bulge and went home on the Queen Mary.
