World War 2 Veteran Robert H Kuntz

Veteran's Name: Robert H Kuntz

Please understand that I am looking for a very specific person identified as best as I can based on what I have in the 561st Field Artillery roster.

I have given the name as I have it. I will give First Name, Middle Initial, and Last Name if I have it. I will give First Name and Last Name if that is what I have. I will give the Last Name if that is all I have. Only when the Last Name is listed is there any leeway for many different possible First Names.

I have searched the Social Security Death Index, the 1930 Census, and the Archives NARA AAD database, some obituaries, and some cemeteries. If anyone knows of an searchable, online military personnel database, please let me know.


1. This is NOT A TRUE GENEALOGY PROJECT because I am not looking for ancestors at all. I am looking for living veterans or in cases where the veteran is deceased, descendants or family members of the veteran.

2. I am looking for living veterans of World War 2:

       a. Who served in the US Army only in Europe from April, 1944 to July, 1945.

       b. And who specifically served only in the 561st Field Artillery Battalion.

       c. And whose birth year is between 1906 to 1926 with living men in the later years of the range.

3. I am also looking for family members or descendants in cases where a known veteran of the 561st Field Artillery Battalion is deceased.

4. Brief 561st FAB history: Formed at Camp Robinson near Little Rock, AR in 1943. Trained at Camp Shelby, MS and Camp Polk, LA in 1943/1944. Departed New York City on the French liner Il de France in April, 1944. Landed on Utah Beach on June 30, 1944. Fought in France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Germany. Fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Departed the continent in July, 1945 for eventual return to the USA and subsequent discharge from the Army.


Post a reply only if the man you know of fits ALL of the above criteria, especially the listed name.
