Hi

I am trying to confirm whether a Louis Gratilone served with HQ Company, 2nd Battalion, 517th from the period roughly January - June 1945. If anyone has any info on Louis, I would love to hear from them, Regards Ken

I was first aware of this unit when I watched the movie "Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed". I was already interested in WW2 history. The interest was sparked by the fact that a majority of the available men in my family fought in this war. My paternal grandfather was a small arms repairman in the Pacific (Army), maternal grandfather was anti-tank squad lead with the 104th Inf and a great uncle was wounded at Pearl Harbor just to name a few. I grew up close to my maternal grandfather since other one died when I was very young. My longer living grandfather told me his war stories from being in the front lines in Holland, Belgium and Germany. Anyway like I said I enjoy reading and learning WW2 history. In regards to airborne, I primarily heard about 101st and 82nd so after becoming aware of this one I wanted to check out this unit's history.

Thank all of you for your sevice, God Bless
WWII Vets are an interest to me, as a former vet myself from the 82nd and 1/115 29 ID I have follow the history of both of these great units, I see the 517th was also one of these special units as well.
