Greetings from Omaha, Nebraska USA

Hello, I'm Michael from Omaha. I came across this website while doing some research on the 134th Infantry Regiment (Nebraska National Guard) which landed in Normandy of 5 July 1944. I'm also interested in the 110th Medical Battalion (Nebraska National Guard). In the not so distant past I was heavily involved with re-enacting and participating with 134th veteran's at their events. Almost all of those guys are gone now but I'm trying to keep their memory and stories alive. I am also a collector of 134th Infantry, 110th Med and 35th ID uniforms, equipment, documents, etc. I am particularly interested in their Preparation for Overseas Movement (POM) bar cods and unit serial numbers. Unfortunately the recent book covering POM codes only goes to D-Day + 14. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome Michael have fun browsing the site. Don't be afraid to contribute.

Just some info I have is that I have identified 3 guys from the 134th IR that ended up in Rennes Military Hospital, Frontstalag 221 W as PWs, 2 of these went on to Stalag VII A and 1 was liberated on 4 August 1944 when the hospital was captured.

I am currently researching the 134th and the 110th Med Battalion. I am trying to find the Sgt./Medic who saved my grandfather's life. The event occurred September 10th-11th, 1944, at Flavigny Bridge. If anyone has information on litter bearers from Co. A of the 110th please share. My grandfather said the Sgt./Medic who saved him was a "big guy". He also had a Lt. (He thinks?) with him.
Thanks!
