Thanks for the quick reply.  The soldier that I am researching was in C Company, and I was able to successfully identify him through your website, so again thank you.  The soldier's name is Chester J. Olejniczak.  It is my hope to identify his platoon/gun crew/vehicle, and if possible to locate photographs and film footage.  Like with most post war families, they have a few photos, one or two stories and some limited militaria.  My families military history is a bit more firmly developed, largely because many of us are military veterans. One last thing, upon identifying his platoon/squad/crew, it is my hope to locate remaining surviving members with the idea that might friend might get to communicate with them to gain a better understanding of who her grandfather was, even if only for that period of time.
