  1. I am looking for a great uncle and the history he has in wwii. I was told by my grandmother, his sister that he was in the 82nd but she said he was at camp mackall and i know that 82nd is at fort bragg. She has passed on and I dnt know enough to support what he has done for this nation. If anyone at this site could help, i would truly appreciate it. I can be reached at the attached address

    • He might have been in the 551st Parachute Infantry Battalion which was formed at Camp McCall and was ultimately wiped out in the Bulge, having taken their objective. Survivors, including my Dad, were reassigned to elements of the 82nd. I have a lot of historical info on the 551PIB if you are interested.
