116th US Infantry help needed

Recommended Posts

Can anyone identify an "R.P. Lacey" serving in Co. F of the 116th Infantry? The only information I have is that he was from Scottsburg, Va.

Thanks!

WW1 or WW2....? He doesn't show up in the morning reports for WW2.....but some don't, it isn't a fullproof reference....there are two soldiers with the name 'Lacy', but not your guy.

I can't find him in the rosters in History of the Twenty-ninth Division, "Blue and gray," 1917-1919 or Virginia Military Organizations in the World War.

Thanks very much guys! I now suspect that he was in the unit in the 1930s when it was part of the VA national guard and did not have active service in the unit in WW1 or WW2. I checked his 1918 and 1942 draft registration cards and he had lost four fingers on his left hand. I guess that pretty much disqualified him for field service!

I will check the 1940 VARNG yearbook this evening when I get home, maybe he will show up in that.

Looked in the 1940 Annual, and he is not in the 116th Company F Roster.

 

Company F drilled out of the Armory in South Boston, Va.....it would appear that if we was in the unit in Co. F then it was prior to 1939-1940.

 

There is a “M.H. Lacy” listed as a PFC.
