Shared by his son, Robert Schroeder...
"He was a Sergeant for a 60mm mortar squad and fought in three major battles. The photos are of him in training, France and after the war in the Liberty Club in Germany."
Shared by grandson Scott Brown
"I was recently given an account of my grandfather's personal recollection of his time serving in the 65th by my mother. It is quite a detailed and lengthy story but very interesting. This photo is on the cover. My grandfather, Vernon Langemach, is 2nd from right. I thought I would just pass the photo on. Never new much about his time in the service, but am quite fascinated by some of the research I've been doing. Didn't need anything else.
I wish he was still around. Might have enjoyed your reunions. He was able to visit Europe before he passed away. It was a very emotional experience for him."

William E Burke photo memories
Shared by his grandson Griffin Perry
“He served during World War II but I never knew what unit he served with. Unfortunately he passed away in 2011 but I have a few pictures of him and possibly others in the unit. I'm pretty sure, judging by his patch, that he served in the 65 ID.
My grandfather, William Burke, was a medic while serving with the 65th and was awarded the bronze star and I have the citation for it that explains what he received it for."
