KASTAUFER.....keep us informed of the scoop. Still an incredible group. An oral history would be icing on the cake.

Love the grouping and all of the history it details.  My wife's father served with the 137th in WW2 and received the purple heart, but unfortunately passed away in the early 70s without leaving any kind of written account of his experiences.  We did contact several veterans he served with and so did find some additional information and photos about his time with the unit.  I wish he could have left a grouping as complete as this one (even though he was never a POW), but I applaud you for keeping these gentlemen's stories alive.

Please, if you ever decide to sell this grouping...please, let me know. I would definitely like to purchase this grouping as Sgt Markworth was with SSgt Charles Gentile when he was killed on 16 JUL 1944. I am good friends with the Gentile family.

I'm sorry to report that Maurice J. A. Marksworth, Co L, 134th Infantry Regiment, 35th Infantry Division passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the age of 97. 

 

If you are researching the 35th Infantry Division or a soldier from any of its units (e.g. 134th, 137th, and 320th Infantry Regiments; 127th, 161st, 216th, 219th Field Arty; etc.) be sure to check out the 134th Infantry Regiment Website.  On the website you will find Morning Reports, General Orders, After Action Reports, Unit Journals, plus much more information for all WWII 35th Infantry Division units.  I have posted a lot of new information over the last year - so if you haven't checked the site recently you might want to take a look.  You don't need to register or pay to use the site.  Its open to all.

I am very sorry to hear that. He was a true hero. I have some videos of interviews he gave at one of the reunions.
