My Great Uncle, Herbert Ronk of Twin Falls, Idaho was in F Co. 2-334 Inf and killed in Prummern on 18 Nov 44. I doubt anyone is still around from that day and remembers the event so, I am interested in any details of the actions of 2nd Bn, 334th Infantry that day. Family lore is that a sniper shot him the first day of Opn Clipper before he ever fired a shot himself.

Looking for any info about my great uncle David Carson, from Phila, PA.
He served in the US Army (84th Division of the 334th Infantry) from April 1943 to November 1944.

He turned 20 years old the week before he died in Germany on Nov 22nd 1944.

I deeply appreciate anything you can tell me about my uncle (or more likely), his division, and their work in Nov '44.

Thank you for your help. Kind regards,

My brother Wendal W. Verser Co.I 334th Div. in Operation Clipper 18th Nov. to 26th of Nov. when he died in battle. I am looking for Guy Charles Ellis from Cleveland , Ohio who saw my brother wounded. Ellis also was wounded, but survived. I live in AR.
I would appreciate if any one knew exactly how and what day my brother died I would appreciate if you would contact me. I have read the book of Operation Clipper,by Ken Ford but could not pinpoint when he was wounded or what happened.

Looking for any information on Lt Fred Wiecking, Company I commander who was wounded on Dec 24 and initially listed as MIA during the Battle of the Bulge at Rochfort, Belgium. My father died in 1963 as a result of these injuries. He never spoke about the war and my memories of him are those of the 12 year-old I was when he died.

My email address is wiecking_king@yahoo.com

Thank you,
Helen Wiecking King

My father was Cpl Bruce C. Grubb, Dumas, Arkansas. He was killed Christmas Day, 1944 at the Battle of the Bulge. On the 50th anniversary of his death I was fortunate to locate Orval Abshier, Carthage, MO who was with him when he died. Until then my Mother could never put him to rest because she worried that he was alone when he died. He was buried in Henri Chappelle cemetary until repatriation in 1948.

My Father, Sgt. Wilfred(Bill) Lewis was in the 84th, 335th Infantry, Co. I, Squad Leader 745. He was inducted in June/July 1944 and after basic, was in the Battle of the Bulge through the VE, and coming home in 1946. He died in 1976 unfortunately, so it may not help add any insights to the questions here....

Does anyone have information about George (Anton)Gerstenmaier? He was with the 334th. A 19-year-old from Connecticut who died November 20, 1944. Unfortunately, I do not know any of the family members who are direct descendants or who know his battalion or company. My mother-in-law is his cousin and wew will be visiting the Geilenkirchen area and Margraten shortly.

My Uncle was in the 84th, 334th Infantry, company K. He went MIA on Nov 21, 1944, near Prummern. His name was same as mine. Rzeppa, Robert L., from Chicago.

My Grandmother never found out exactly what happened to him. I'm sure this was not unusual.

I was in the Prummern area with the 1st Bn 84th Infantry Division from the 19th November 1944 untill we left a month later for the Battle of the Bulge. I did not know Clarence but I'm sure we had common experiences. I would be glad to email some of my experiences from that time.
