My Grandfather Walter "Earl" Zirk was with the 30th Div. 120th Inf. Regiment in WWII. He died before I was born, but story goes his patrol was approaching a house they thought occupied by Germans. The Germans were in the hedge rows (making me think Normandy Breakout period) when they were opened up on by a machine gun. My grandfather stated he was lying across a ditch, listening to his blood drip (both leg severely shot below the knees). Eventually a German approached and took out a knife. My grandfather stated he thought he was going to die, but the German carried my grandfather back to the American lines. Unsure of the truth of this story. His veteran form shows 30th Reg. 120th Inf. Division G. Co. but doesn't give me a battalion. I am a former Marine ad am trying to find a possible unit diary to locate the date, location, and perhaps any specifics related to his wounding incident. Any help greatly appreciated.

Looking for anyone who has information on our Uncle PFC Michael Kandracs from Pennsylvania.
He was 21 years old when he was supposedly killed crossing the Roer river on Feb. 23, 1945.
He was single. His family was very devesated by his death even to the point that is has affected the younger Kandrick generations. His brother, Richard, (my Father), was born 1 year after his death. It is hard not knowing what really happened. Any army buddies that knew him?????
