I really like the web site. I think it was very informative and really enjoyed the pictures. I have a friend Howard Brooks who served with the 16th in WWII. I have ordered one of the history books as a gift for him. He will really enjoy it. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the information. My dad is Henry Alton French who landed on D-Day with 16th Inf, 3rd Bat, Co G., 3rd Plt., 3rd squad. He has the last names only of the men he landed with and the last names of the men he was with when he got knocked out on 22 March, 1945.His dog tag # is 34800472. He is interested in the 1st div. reunion this Summer. How can he join your association? He was going to visit his Capt. Joe T Dawson this spring in Texas but alas he has passed. He wondered if he might be the last of his unit and wanted to try and find any left standing.Thanks for any help.. Lynwood

My father, SFC William D. Curtis, served in Company I, 16th Inf during WWII. He was a Light Mortar Crewman (607) and earned his CIB in May 1945. (Earlier, he was with the 139 AAA Gun Bn). After the war, he remained in the Army as a Mess Sergeant. He retired from Active Duty in 1964 and passed away in 1965. I still think about him, often. Every now and then I'll look through his letters and records. This is one of those times. I miss him. I have always thought of searching out friends and acquaintances from his war years. To ask what he was like, how he thought (I was seven when he died). I never seemed to get around to it. Perhaps, I'll never know. Thank you for setting up this site. Going down the list of your Distinguished Members, it reminds me that somewhere out there are persons and places and memories of which my Dad was a part.

I just checked my confirmation and notice that I input my email address wrong. The proper address is as on this one. Oh, one more I forgot to mention is John D. Fulford from the '66 & '67 era. In case anyone doesn't remember me, I was Lt. Libbs RTO and later Capt. Canadys RTO. I made contact with Capt. Canady a couple of years ago and assume he still lives in Florida. If any of those I have mentioned have emails addresses, I would appreciate a response to the above email address.. Thanks and remember "Ready Now".

Got your URL from the Dagwood Dispatch issue # 29. Glad to see that as usual, the 16th Inf. is keeping up with all the latest communication technology. For all of those from Co C 2nd Bn 16th Inf who served in Vietnam during the '66 to '67 era, I talked to Sgt. John Crow last night in Colorado. He said he had been in contact recently with SSG Jo Shine, Lt. Libbs and a few others as result of the newsletter. We talked about how we would like to get in touch with Lawson Passmore, Doc Fenton, Josh Morris (Chief), Sgt Neeves, Sgt Speedy Gonzales, Rhyneer, Warmka, etc. from that era If anyone can help us, would sure appreciate it. John Seville, if you are the same Seville who served with us during that era, perhaps you know how to get in touch with some of those mentioned.

You have the most informative site I have found on the 16th. My father, J.B. McCarver, served with the 16th in World War 2 and was wounded in the Rhineland Campaign I think. I have tried to find out more information about the battles he was in but have had no luck so far. My father died in 1954 when I was only 2 years old so I would appreciate any information any one could give me. My mother said he would never talk about the war after he came home. Thank you.

The 1st US Infantry Divisions History regarding units that were attached to it is incorrect for the period of 6/6/44 to 6/15/44. It shows that the 745th Tank Battalion was attached to the 16th Regimental Combat Team for the initial landing on Omaha beach. Plan "NEPTUNE" assigned Companies B,C, and A to the 2nd and 3rd Battalion of the 16th Regiments secto of Easy-Red Fox-Green part of Omaha Beach. Per General Order NO.442, Headquarters 1st United States Infantry Division, dated July 1944, the 741st Tank Battalion was cited for outstanding performance of duty in action, etc. I have been trying for almost 10 years to get someone to notice the error and correct it. The 741st was awarded a Presidential Unit Citation for the D-Day invasion. Could someone E mail me how to get the record straight. It has been incorrect for 56 years. My brother was a tank gunner in Company A 741st Tank Battalion. The 1st Division History should list the 741st as being attached to the 16th Regiment, 1st US Infantry Division from 6/6/44 to 6/15/44.

The best, most demanding & rewarding years of my 20 years of service were spent @ Panzer Kaserne w/CSC, 1st 16th In(Mech). I found this site a little more than a year ago. As it was then, it still is now, the registration site is still under construction! The regiment made it off Omaha Beach faster! Pardon my sarcasm. But, I'm a sentimental "young" fool that has some great 16th In. memomries. Of all the regiments I served in, I remain most proud to have served in this one. Please, can I register?

Just recently my wife and I started tracing our family trees. We found out that her grandfather served in WWII. His name was Lyle Gordon Hadley. He passed on Dec. 24, 1948. On his headstone was written TEC 5 16th Infantry 1st Division. We are hoping that someone out there might have known him or has a picture of him. His son did not have a chance to know him and he has not seen a picture of him in over 50 years. Thankyou to anyone who can help us.

for a couple of months now I have beentrying to get through to the 16th Infantry-Regiment to see if there are anyone that was in Able or Charlie companys that were there when I was with them. I can remember some of your names the only bad thing about it is they are the ones that gave me the most trouble, there was Lt thurston Sgt lunsiford Cpl Kite ,and one that I feel good to have known him is Robbie Robinson he was in Charlie Company at the same time I was there and the there was Capt. Olson whom was a great Officer and I don't know weather I'm spelling his nmame correctly an that is Col Hossinfelt or something like that there are a couple of other Officers that were in Able Company that were there when I first got there one was Capt Rifleier and the other was also a Lt and it is a shame that I don't remember his name because he was a swell guy someone you could be prood to have serve with if any of you guy out there know who I'm talking about you can do the 16th Inf.Regt. a great service by sending in his name Pvt. paul F

Hi! I was with the 16thinf regt. Ijoined the regt in oct.1948 and remained with it until may 1951 when I was returned to the zone of inteareir. I think this guest book is a great idea for guys that were with the regt to get reaquainedand ever since I have been a member of the 16th inf. accn and received my copy of the dogpatch I feel as though I've been with the outfit all along. thank you for bringing back some sad and glad memorie of the past when I departed the 16th I went home for a while and then I was sent over to Korea and then while I was over there and visited a hospital I just happen to have run into one of the guys that was in the 16th inf. regt. and not only was he in the same regt we were in the same co.able co.

Very Interesting. My mother lived in Bridport, Dorset, England as a girl and has told me on many occasions of the American troops stationed in the area before D-Day. Only recently have I discovered that the troops were the 16th Infantry Regiment so I am pleased to learn more about the regiment. Also, whilst on holiday in France several years ago, I was able to visit Omaha beach and likewise I am pleased to be able to learn more about the men who landed there. As a boy I lived in Weymouth, Dorset and there were many older poeple around who remember the American troops passing through before D-Day. Again I find that it was the 16th who passed through first so whilst I am an Englishman I find there are many family connections with the 16th.

One of the key pieces of information missing is a map of the German defenses which was captured on Omaha. I was told by folks at the 116th Regimental Museum in Staunton and the D-Day Museum in New Orleans that you might have it in your collection. If so, would it be possible to get a copy of it?

I was the platoon leader of Co. A 1st platoon of the 16th Infantry in 1961-62 as part of the Berlin buildup. The unit was then in Baumholder, Germany. Those were good days for the 16th - everything at full strength. By the way, the soldiers you see in the landing scenes of "The Longest Day" were from the 16th. Many of them were in my platoon. Great website you have here

A great site. My uncle, Charles (Chuck) E. Langille, served with B Co, 1/16th. From Summer of 1968 to fall 1969. I am trying to find information on him for his daughter. Chuck survived Vietnam but died before my cousin was born and while I was only 6 yrs old. Anyone remember a Chuck Langille from Massachusetts?

I served with two units of the Big Red One 1961-1964. From visiting the C,2/16th website I think I may have served with a member of that outfit. Early 63 we both transfered from Alpha,2/12th Inf. to the 16th Inf . Reg. . I lost track of him then. I went with E,1/16th which when the Div. went from Battle Groups back to Battalions became Bravo,1/16th. I was discharged in 64,before
Vietnam. The fellow I served with up on Custer Hill with the 2/12th was P.F.A. Faberski. I think his first name is Peter. If you know him ,and he remebers me,I would like to get in touch,just to say Hello. Charlie Moy...former Sgt. 106 Crew Squad Leader. My name is: Charles Moy Former: Sgt,E5, Squad Leader 106MM,R.R.

Thanks for keeping up the fine work in maintaining this site. I am looking for information about my father...Sgt.Joseph A. Crescenzo. He served in Company C/ 1st Battalion/ 16th Infantry Reg. during WWII. His nickname was "Crash", and we don't know the reason for it. He was awarded the Silver Star saving a wounded buddy, under heavy fire. Unfortunately, we don't have the Citation describing the excat situation. Father saw action in North Africa and Sicily, where he was wounded, and shipped Stateside for a six month recuperation in La Garde General Hospital, Louisiana. He became a Drill Master Sgt and Drill instructor in the 861st Field Artillery BN. Does anyone have a recollection of my Dad? Does anyone the name of the soldier whose life he saved, or the place where the incident took place? Any information is deeply appreciated. Joseph Caiazzo

I served with the 1/16th from July '68 to Sept/Oct 1969 as a "Leg" at Lai Khe. Then our Bn was "exchanged" with the 5/60 Bn "Mech" of the 9th Inf Division in the Delta. The 5/60th has a web site as is noted in the "Links" that is worthwhile checking out. We are trying to update our membership rosters (Mech and Leg). I am particularly interested in Alpha Company as I served with them in the 1/16th and 5/60th "leg". I offered to get a roster on the 5/60th web site. I would really like to hear from anyone, of course, but I'm working at the roster. I need your help as I believe there are a lot of 1/16th members that have also served with the 5/60th. Please contact me to be included or the Alpha Co roster and check out the 5/60th web site. William Spears

All the information I gather is being used in two ways-1) it is being compiled into a book telling of the war as seen by the VETERAN; and 2) it is being used to make our displays for the public more accurate. If you are a veteran of WWII and would like to participate, or if you would like to know more about our projects, please contact me at the email given. Thank you. Wm.T. Ripley

I see that CSM William B. Feely has become an honorary member and would like to congratulate him. I served under him and have always been proud of the distinguished soldier he has always been. I did serve beside the big red one in Desert Storm for a time but never assigned. I am a veteran of a foreign war as is my Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather. It has been several years since I have talked to CSM Feely and would sincerely like to know he is doing well. Hopefully the south is treating him well and teaching has become a part of his life. I would love it if he would email me and let me know he is ok. I am very proud to be an American. Thanks

Looking for 1966 veterans of B Co./2nd. Battalion/16th Regiment or others who might help me find Ray Wire, Roger? Thompson,or John Harthan. All tried to save my KIA father's life. His CH-47 crashed on takeoff from a confined PZ near Dau Tieng. This 1st Infantry Division unit had captured VC supplies in the jungle. Dad's CH-47 unit was assigned the task of hauling out the captured VC tin sheets, bicycles, and pots and pans. On the third run they lost power on takeoff and could not clear the 70 foot trees. All others escaped, but my father was trapped with his feet caught in the pedals. At great risk these men attempted to save Dad, but could not. I'd like to find them and thank them. Any help or search suggestions would be appreciated. Always-Mark S. Seeley Youngest son of Captain John S. Seeley April 10 1932 - June 27 1966

Hi Folks, There is an online petition being taken at : www.PetitionOnline.com/pfcmongo/petition.html to urge the D.O.D. to award a medal to those who served during the Cold War Era. I personally feel that we (I served 61-64) deserve some recognition for our service to our country. The Congress approved the issuance of the medal and the money is already in the budget, but D.O.D.(Sec. Rumsfeld) for some reason has decided not to do it. I would appreciate it if you would think it over,and if you agree with me,go to the site and sign the petition. You DO NOT have to be a Cold War Veteran to sign,just a citizen of the U.S.A.. Thanks, Charlie Moy..A,2/12TH..61-63 ..E,(later B) 1/16th..63-64 Big Red One . Please pass this on.

She was orphaned by her mother shortly after birth in 1940 then again by her father in 1943. She only had a letter from the VA in about 1958 that documented his service dates and serial number. We started looking when she came accross that letter again. Thanks to your web page she found that he hadn't been completely lost to time.

So here I am still looking and finding noone. He was from Fresno, CA I do have a photo of him reading a letter from home while in Vietnam. I would also like to take this moment to thank each and everyone of our service men and women that have served and sacrificed thier lives for me and my family to live safely in this country.

Great site, though I do not understand why PVT George Abicht, L Company KIA 4 October 1918 is not listed in your Hall of Honor. He was originally listed as MIA, then switched to KIA. Buried in France.
