My father's cousin Francis J. Ruddy Jr. belonged to Company A, 1st Bat., 517th PIR. Fran was born in Scranton, PA, and proudly served in the US Army for 32 years. I've been trying to piece together a history of Fran's career starting with the great information on this website. After WWII, Fran served in Korea (187th Regimental Combat Team) and served with the Special Forces during the period of the Vietnam War.

My grandfather, James S. Royer Jr., was a member of the 517 PCT in WWII, including the Battle of the Bulge, earning multiple bronze stars and a silver star. He passed away Monday, March 2nd at 90 years old.
I would love to be in contact with anyone who may have served with him, or whose relatives may have served with him.

Cpl Daniel Fisher (HQ Co. 1st Battalion) is my grandma's brother. "Uncle Dan" as he's referred to here. My grandma is 93 years old and going strong. Dan and my grandma look so much alike- probably the most similar of all their siblings. She still has the newspaper clipping of when Dan's death was announced in the local newspaper. Thanks for maintaining this website and thank you to all Veterans for your service.

My grandfather, Robert Hartsock, is listed on his headstone as a member of Co. I, 517th Par. Inf during WWII, and the army lists him as serving from 1943 to 1946 being discharge as a member of the 82nd AB. Would like to know more about his service from anyone who might have information. Thanks, Robert Hartsock.

Thanks in part to this website I was finally able to track down the family of Allen Douglas; the man who saved his life on September 9, 1944. My grandfather, Henry Filipczak, is now 90 and this was a great blessing for all of us.

CPL John Brunner passed on 14 JUN 2014, he loved reminiscing with me about his experiences with the 517th and enjoyed his news letters. If any of you are still in touch with the boys at the reunions, let them know he is securing the DZ with the rest of them in heaven.

Admin reply: Cpl. John J. Brunner was with Battery C, 460th PFAB.
