Major Rowland Parks (original battalion member) oldest daughter signed in states:

 

Just wanted to let you all know, I am Major Rowland M.Parks, Jr.'s oldest daughter and Dad is fine and living in Virginia now. He retired from Fort Eustis Transportation Post as a Lt. Colonel.  Thanks to Tonja for that update.

 

Whitener, Russ - SGT 69-70 (nickname "HOSS") A Battery signed in.

Gest, William E. - SP4 66-67 ((Original Member) C Battery signed in.

 

Glenda says we now have found 750 of our guys.

 

On my last update question on the C Battery wounded Dale Elston was able to identify

James Cox as in the Ammo section.  He also thinks the wounded ammo sergeant may also have had the last name of Cox or similar.
