I am researching my grandfather's service during WW2. He was in the 18th Infantry, Co. B, from 22 Sept. 1944 - 31 May 1946. He landed in Europe on 8 May 1945 and was shipped back to the US on 17 May 1946. If you know of anyone who may have served with him and/or have any info on where Co. B was from May 1945 to May 1946, please contact me. michaudclare38@gmail.com

I served in Germany from March 1960 until July 1962. I was with the unit when it was sent to Berlin when the wall was being built. I was assigned to Charlie Company.

Sirs, I am providing humanitarian assistance (no pay/fees, not seeking donations and not sell pin, hats, etc.) in helping the Vietnamese find at least some of 400,000 MIAs. This effort just started in 10/2016 and current in process of finding and excavating the graves near the Bien Hoa Air base from the '68 Tet Offensive. I was informed by a US Vet of a mass grave at Loc Ninh from the battles in Oct & Nov '67. I found the detailed story written by Wayne Wade (3rd Platoon, B Company, 1/18th Infantry). I would appreciate your assistance in pinpointing the actual location of any graves in this area. Like our own families of MIAs (currently about 1611) they to need closure for their sons, fathers, uncles or brothers. My former CO (Ret Col. Marty Strones, 3rd Security Police Sq. , Bien Hoa Air base) is also helping in this mission. We have meet with the Military, Provincial Officers and Staff of Dong Nai. While at Bien Hoa in March in searching for one of the graves we even had a surprise visit and meeting with the 1st Deputy Prime Minister of Viet Nam. Please pass on to our fellow Veterans to contact me concerning any site, not just Loc Ninh. Sincerely, Bob Connor 609-230-3488

I was with 4th platoon Company C 2nd Battalion 18th Infantry 1st Infantry Division from Jan 1969 until they pulled out late in the year and was transferred to Can Tho until I shipped out in Jan 1970. Looking to contact anyone who served in the 4th Platoon.

I am looking for anyone who may have served in the 2nd Battalion during WWII. I am particularly interested to make contact with anyone who may have known my uncle, S/SGT Henry C. Boylin, Jr. He was declared MIA on 10/9/1944 at the Battle of Aachen, Germany. His body has never been identified. My uncle served in campaigns at North Africa, Sicily, Normandy, Northern France and Aachen. He was awarded numerous decorations for bravery and courage, including 2nd Silver Stars, 2 Bronze Stars, and the Purple Heart. Anyone having any knowledge of the whereabouts of any soldier who served in the 2nd Battalion during WWII, I would be sincerely appreciative to be able to contact them. Thank you.

As I stated in a previous posting, I served with B Co, 2nd 18th, 1 Sept '69, to the Division going home in early '70. I just read the name of another guy from my hometown who also served in B 2/18, and was KIA on 01-29-68. Never knew we both served in the same unit, let alone Company, at different times. If you served with Sgt. Robert Barbery, and know about his death, please contact me. please. There are no more of his family in our hometown, so I am asking for help here. Thanks guys.

I had no idea there was a reunion. Dad passed in 75. Transferred to the 16th AD close to end of war, liberated Pilsen Cz. then back to 18th 1st Div. Any reunion planned in 2016-2017?

Good afternoon. My name is Kevin Morrow, and I am a historical researcher. In past years, I have assisted veterans and their relatives search for documents of interest to them such as after-action reports and general orders related to awards and decorations produced during America's wars of the 20th century (WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam). If you are interested in having me search for documents of this sort, you can contact me on my website (www.abinitioresearch.net), and I'll be happy to help any way I can. Please note I don't assist with getting military service files or with Agent Orange cases.

I was called DUCK.I need BUDDY LETTERS..line #24 on my DD-214 did'nt have anything that i earned (Airmedal w cluster/etc.) It had the Campaighn Medal w Four Bronze Stars BUT the Board Of Corrections "changed" it to a SERVICE Medal,Telling ME that there is no RECORDS of ME or Bravo 2/18th doing ANYTHING during this time.I shot EXPERT with the M-16 (scores to prove it) and they giving me MARKSMAN and "refuse" to change it.What they're saying i know and everyone there know thats a LIE!!!
