Wanting to corresponde with anyone who was in Co.I, 335th Infantry, 84th Infantry Division, WWII from 1944 to 1945. European Theater of Operations (Germany / Belgium) who might know of the following soldier:
Marion W. (Woodrow) Carter
Private (From Arkansas)
Listed as MIA (Missing in Action) on, or about 24 Dec 1944 (Official Unit Morning Report), then listed as POW (Prisoner of War) on, or about 26-27 Dec 1944 (Official Army MIA/POW Report) (Presume this information was given the the US ARMY by the Red Cross).
Marion Carter was taken to Stalag-9b Bad Orb, until liberated sometime in the spring of 1945.
If you know of this person, and his unit I would like to here from you. Also, if you have any photos of this person, or his unit, and are willing to share (via scanned email copies) I would greatly appreciate it as well.
Thank you for your time and help!!
This was the unit my Dad, Julian Taft Nelson, was in, he passed away this Dec. 2nd. I came on here to try and notify anyone that might have served with him. I have an old picture of this unit that I would be happy to scan and send to you, I believe it was taken at the end of boot camp.
My father was John Parnell, 335th infantry 84th division, captured in late fall 1944 in Leige, Belgium. His last prison camp was Bad Orb, Germany. Released in spring 1945. My husband and I visited village of Bad Orb and probable site of camp with him in 1969 when we were stationed in Germany. Father died in early 90's. Would love a picture of unit. Thanks so much.
My Great Uncle was Roy McDowell was in the 335th Inf., 84th Div and was killed in action. He is buried overseas, I would love a picture of the unit. I'm research family history and we only have one picture of Roy.
Thanks so much. Ann
My uncle served in Co. I of the 335th Infantry through WWII then served in the 2nd Infantry in Korea and was killed at Kunu-ri. Unfortunately the majority of his records were destroyed in a federal building arson in the 70s. I would appreciate any information of Co. I 335th, where they served during WWII. I am able to back track much of the Korea time. But I had hit a brick wall regarding their positions during WWII. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
I live in the German town of Bückeburg and have tried to find details regarding fighting between German and US Forces in the local area. I was sent the following by the editor of a British magazine called After The Battle:
Bückeburg was actually within the sector of the US Ninth Army (the boundary with British Second Army ran north of the line Minden -- Hannover) but it had some British units under command, notably the 6th Guards Tank Brigade. I looked up their unit history, but found nothing about Bückeburg.
The US Ninth Army history says that on April 7, 'XIII Corps forces engaged in further expansion of their Weser bridgehead east of Minden, and elements of the 84th Infantry Division advanced as much as eight miles to Bückeburg and Stadthagen.'
The US 84th Division history specifies that its 335th Infantry Regiment took Bückeburg while the 334th Infantry went around it to the north in the direction of Stadthagen. The 1st Bn, 335th, supported by tanks and tank destroyers, attacked Bückeburg from the south in the early hours of April 8, knocked out two German SP guns and by dark had captured the town. During the day (April 8), the 334th went around Bückeberg to the north and the 333rd to the south. Halfway between Wahrer and Rusbend, the 334th overtook an enemy convoy, including several half-tracks, three trucks and a tank. The US tanks (from the 771st Tank Battalion, the 84th Division's attached tank unit) knocked out the tank and at least one half-track, the rest scattered.
I hope this is of interest and would be grateful for any further information.
My Father, Sgt. Wilfred Lewis, served from 1944 - 1946 in the 84th Division, 335th Infantry, Company I, Squad Leader 745. He was in the Battle of the Bulge through to VE day. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1976, so I don't have any stories or information. I would appreciate the picture that is offered here. God Bless.
My grandfather served as a lineman in th 335th infantry 84th division. I would love to have that unit photo if you would be able to email it to me. Thank you!
I'm not sure if this threat is still active, but I come to you all hoping for some information.
My grandfather, George Emory Wiley, was a member of the 84th Infantry. He survived the war but died of a heart attack in the '80s before I was born in 1989. I don't know a whole lot about his time in the military, but I do know that he was a medic and received a purple heart.
My father has an excerpt of a book that mentions part of the 84th Infantry's actions and mentions my grandfather, who was nicknamed "Red," as going into a burning building using doors as stretchers to save members of his division. I don't know the name of the book and I only have a few pages from it, but if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. My father would love to have the book and I'd love to be able to give it to him.
Also, whoever mentioned the unit photo... I would love to have a copy to give to my father.
Anyone with any info can email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi all, I have the unit photo, will be happy to scan and send copies of it. I am working offshore and it will be a couple of weeks before I am able to get it sent out. I had forgotten about this posting, got to thinking about my Dad and did a google search and it pulled this post up. I may have found some more pics in my Grandparent's things but have not looked at them close enough to see if it is 84th, or if it is pics of my Uncles' units.
