Comments: Greetings! My great uncle PFC Stanley C. Rogers, Co. A, 1st Batt., 103d Inf. Regt., 43d Inf. Div., was Killed In Action near Lingayen Gulf, Luzon, P.I. on Jan. 10, 1945. He enlisted in the US Army on Nov. 11, 1942 out of South Dakota. He is buried in the American Cemetery, Manila, P.I Looking for any info of his service with this unit. I have his enlistment papers and his official casualty report. All other records were destroyed in the 1973 fire in St. Louis, MO. So the time between his enlistment to his death at the age of 20 is a mystery. He was an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and was a fluent Lakota speaker. He was well known for his musical ability with the piano and saxophone. One item recovered with his personal effects, was his saxophone. Any ifo would be greatly appreciated. He was from South Dakota and served with guard units from Maine and Connecticut. Thank you.

Comments: My father, Sanford Meadows, served with Headquarters Company, 43rd Division. One of the first in our area to be drafted, he arrived in New Zealand on 22 Oct 1942, his 22nd birthday. He was extremely proud of his service with the 43rd, but it wasn't until my husband's Guard Unit was called up for Gulf I that he shared with us. I was able to obtain a copy of the "History of the 43rd Division 169th Infantry" which he constantly read and reread. Presenting him with several notebooks covering the 43rd's history was one of the best things I was ever able to do for my father. Thank you for having this web site, allowing families of the 43rd to be able to connect with each other.

Comments: I recently became aware of the monument program for CT veterans of the 43rd Division. My mom's brother, SGT Anthony Witkowski, from Grovenorsdale, CT was a member of the 169th Infantry Rgt. and was killed in action on 12 January 1945. He was one of 8 uncles (3 on my mom's side, 5 on my dad's) who served in WWII. I was born in 1940, and "grew up" with the memories of living with the surviving veterans was so deeply ingrained in me that not a day goes by that I do not think of them, proudly!. Donating to this superb monument is, in some small way, my families way of saying thanks to them, and to all the folks who served.

Comments: Greetings to all. I am the 2nd son of Larry "Butch" Messina of the famous B-Co. Meds.Unit from Middletown, CT. Congrats to all on the 43rd's momument at the veteran's cemetery. My father would be very pleased. I remember that he and former Commander Joe Cannata worked very hard to get that cemetery established back in the 1970s. A BIG THANK YOU to all our WWII-Korean era veterans who saved the free world. For the record I went on to become a history teacher who is big on the contributions of all our nation's veterans in the classroom. ...If anyone who has a memory of my father I'd love to hear it. Best Wishes Always, Len Messina
