My uncle, Joseph C. Petrella, was part of the 175th , 2nd Bat, Co. E. He served in France starting 9/1/44, but was KIA 9/10/44. Because he was only there 10 days, almost no information was available from his unit as far as to where or how he died. At the time, my dad (Pat Petrella, SSGT US Army Ord, Aberdeen) wrote to Joe's chaplain and CO, but received little info.I am trying to pick up the research now using the net and this website has helped greatly. Please contact me if you have any info on this unit during the first weeks of Sep '44. Thanks to all who served in the past and those who still do.

Can anyone direct me to any publicly available battalion/company rosters of the 175 Infantry Regiment, 29th Infantry Division. I am looking for any information available on PFC Hugh H. Maxwell. He is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery, St. James, France. He died of wounds Sept. 15, 1944. The family believes he was wounded in or near Brest. My mother-in-law is his baby sister. She is elderly now and the family knew very little about his experience in Europe. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you and God Bless All.

My Dad was Robert Morrow Knox, Sgt, 227th FA, C Battery, 29th ID. He served through the European campaign until the end and was wounded by counter battery fire in Belgium, I believe. I have written a history of dad's service. I urge any veterans who read this to pass their stories along to someone, please! Once everyone is gone, the best information and stories about the war will be gone, too. Would enjoy hearing from anyone about the 227th FA.

My Uncle was Jack S. Balistreri from San Diego, California. He died in Germany in October of 1944 and is buried in Holland. He was only 21 years old, my father's older brother. I wish I would have known him. Gold bless all these heroes. Rosemary Garzelli
