According to the NARA POW info, his "parent unit number" was 101, which I assume means 101st Inf Regt.

As for service info, I'd reach out to the library/courthouse in his home town and see what they have on him. I've been surprised how many courthouses have DD-214s on file.

All your info is great and I'm thankful for your generous efforts. 101st Inf Regt which was part of the 26th Inf Div. There was a DFC in the acquisition and thought they might have gone together, but since he is possibly ID'd as infantry and it isn't as a Luft Stalag then it is just an additional acquisition.

 

Any other info found is always appreciated.

 

Merry Christmas to ALL!
