Looking for info on the unit my father server in during WW2. He recently passed away and I want to preserve the history of his service for the country he loved so much. The 84th spent time in/near Liege Belgium at the time of the bulge, and his unit was also at Buchenwald immediately upon liberation. Camp Kilmer NJ was one of the places he received med training, but its the only place where I have a unit photo from 1945.

Any info on my dads unit history would be greatly appreciated.

My dad was also with the 84th Field Hospital - I am trying to find out what unit, corp or division that was part of so I can request replacements for all medals, patches, etc. he would have received during 1942-45. You can request the same from the National Personnel Records Center 877-827-9026.

I have a copy of the 84th Field Hospital portrait from Camp Ellis, Illinois in 1944. Anyone interested should message me for a printable copy of it.

Some time ago, I came across the website WW2 US Medical Research Centre. I wasn't able to find anything on the 84th Army Field Hospital, but it might be worth contacting them to see if they can offer any help on finding out more about the 84th. They will not have anything on personnel records and will likely direct those inquiries to the NARA.

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.

Yesterday I was talking with my 90 year old grandfather Frank D'Andrea about his time in WWII and was explaining how he could find information on his unit on the internet. Amazingly I found your photo -- It's amazing that you only left this note a few days ago! Initially he thought he wasn't in that unit until '45, but there he is sitting down in the front row -- he's looking to the left, not at the camera, and the guy behind him has his hands on my grandfather's shoulders. If possible I would love to get a high-res version of the photo that I could print out for him.

I also found one soldier's account of his time in the unit:

Welcome, hender. Please feel free to post any photos in this thread or, if you prefer, start your own thread about your father's service in the What Grandad (or Dad in your case!) Did in the War section.  Also, please introduce yourself to the rest of the forum in our New Members section.
