Veteran Name: Jesse Smoot 561st Field Artillery Battalion

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

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. Who specifically served only in the 561st Field Artillery Battalion.

c. Their birth years will be from about 1906 to 1926 with living men in the later years of the range.

3. I also am 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.
