Name Robert Osuna I'm looking for any members of the 980th Field Artillery Batallion. My fathers name is Jose Osuna from San Diego, Ca. and was a Medic and Cannonier who landed on the 4 th day. I would like to get information on any reunions that may be scheduled, or just anyone who was in that outfit.

My father, Elmer Davenport, was with the 30ID, 119IR, and fought from mid June 1944, thru France, belgium, and Holland. He was in the battle for Mortain, and others I can't remember (he told me this in 1969). He was subsequently captured on October 22nd during the battle for Aachen. He spent 7 months in captivity in Stalag IIA or IXB. There seems to be some discrepancy from what he told me compared to official military records. He saw more than his share of combat. I am so proud of him.

My Father was with the 357th Infantry Regiment, 90th Division. Ho was awarded Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Bronze Arrowhead, 5 Batle Stars, Combat Infintry Badge, WWII Victory Medal, and served 3 years. Pop passed away back in 1962 and never told me about his WWII experiences as I was still a youngster. I was in stationed in Germany in my 4 Army years starting in 1972. I hope to retrace my Pop's steps from his WWII Army Days.

I'm transcribing the POW DIary of my granduncle, Edwin Eddie Erickson, of the 899th Tank Destroyer Battalion. He landed on DDay and was captured on June 7th along with Captain Wood or Ward, and Eddies friend, Weinberg. He spent the rest of the war in Stalags, and was liberated by the Russians eventually. Made it back to the US eventually, raised a family with at least 22 great great grandkids.

I would very much to know if any one remembers my second uncle Dr. Harold Burch Riser who was present at D-day, sorry have no details as to where or when but was taking care of injuries from D-Day. And he was never able to talk about any of his experiences. Must have been terrible. I am so grateful to all that served and this is a great sight.
