Sgt. Robert G. Fleming, 121st Infantry
For Jack Fleming: received your e-mail, this posting is for general consumption, as it were.
Re your uncle, Sergeant Robert G. Fleming, Headquarters Company, 2d Battalion, 121st Infantry, 8th Infantry Division. You can now order his deceased file. His name, unit and date of death - 11 March 1945 - should be more than enough info to locate his file. Every now and then ABMC will have no record (or, for some reason, can't locate it); it doesn't happen often but it does happen.
121st Infantry, nicknamed "The Old Gray Bonnet Regiment", was an element of the Georgia National Guard. Ordered into active Federal service in 1941, the regiment was assigned to 8th Infantry Division, a Regular Army division, and remained so throughout the war.
The regiment's nickname led many members to refer to each other (or to be referred to by others) as "Gray Bonnets" or "Old Gray Bonnets". The regimental distinctive insigne features a gray-colored sun bonnet of the type traditionally worn by Southern women while gardening.
