Anthony S. Dmohowski - HQ Battery.
"He (my father) was wounded in Luxembourg in Jan of 1945 and recovered on a hospital ship. After his recovery he returned to the states to rehabilitate and married my mother who he had met on a weekend leave while in training here in California. He often told the story of meeting my mother, seldom ever mentioned his service, his wounding in the Battle of the Bulge or made reference to the scars and shrapnel he carried for the rest of his life. We only learned a few scant details of his service while cleaning up his affairs."
