My dad was in Co. K, 175th Inf. I've been looking at his discharge papers. He was in the Normandy Campaign, the Northern France Campaign and the Rhineland Campaign before being shot and sent on his way to Percy Jones Hospital. We're going to Normandy next year. Dad has been gone 42 yrs now but it's still going to be a tough visit. However I want to see where my dad was at one point.

My father Homer Berlin was in K company of I believe the 175th Inf. He is still alive at this time of writing (97 y.o.) and stated that he landed via a Rhino Barge. Does anyone have information as to time and place of landing?

My Dad was part of K Company heading up the kitchen staff. He took down the Nazi flag at Port Brest and had 132 soldiers sign it. This included
S. Sgt. George Morris from Elkton Kentucky.

My father was George Gutschke. He served in Company K of the 175th IR of the 29th. He was in 1st platoon which landed on Omaha Beach June 6th. His boat landed in Easy Red or Fox Green sector because he could find no one from his Company and fought with the 1st Infantry Division on the 6th before returning to his unit.

I do have some pictures from training and a couple have people who my father has forgotten. I will try to post those. My father knew GW Hall in Company I and Donald Yeager of Company K.

Please contact me if you need or have any information.
