George Denver Holmes
I have since found the correct information on George Denver Holmes military service. He served in the 76th Infantry Division as a 2 1/2 Jimmy ton driver of the 302nd Field Artillery Battalion. I am still trying to find a picture of him from a Veteran with no luck. Can we correct the inquiry I posted?
Thanks! Connie Robanske Kennewick, WA
Do you have any photo's or stories from the WWII era dealing with Gera, Germany in April 14, 1945-July 1, 1945 with the Army, Blue Ridge division, combat team 319, 3rd battalion. I'm trying to find a picture of George Denver Holmes, private technician 5 who is now deceased. I'm trying to find living people that may hold such a group picture or memories or who knew him and have a photo.
Any information would be helpful.
Thank you, Connie Robanske, Kennewick, WA
Connie, I have your email address.
If I hear or see anything about George, etc., I'll let you know.
Thank you for the photo.

My Family History Of WWII
by Keith Bobbitt
Horace Franklin Neel, son of Mattie Bobbitt Neel, was in the Army during War II.
He was stationed in New Guinea and wounded but I do not know what part of the service or his rank.
I don't know where to find this out either. He is the only one I know of that served from our Bobbitt family.
