Soldiers don't die

To those interested, someone at the Bangor Public Library has uploaded a fully digitized eBook of the 28th Regiment, 8th Infantry Division regimental history, published in 1946 by the United States Army.

The page containing the link can be found below.

This saves me all the trouble of typing it myself!  I was afraid this out-of-print book would be unavailable to the world unless someone transcribed it. Well, somebody went ahead and did all the work. So if anyone is looking for it so they can look up a veteran's name; here it is.

  1. Thanks for the link to the Bangor Public Library's e-Book of the history of the 28th Inf. Reg. From that I found the corresponding e-Book they made of the 13th Inf. Reg. history. My uncle Ralph Hiller was a S/Sgt in Company B of the 13th and his photo and name are included in the book. It's been about a year or more since I last visited this site, which I found while researching the background of Pvt. Walter Wetzel of the 28th, who was posthumously awarded the MoH. Like my uncle, he also lived in Macomb County when he entered the US Army. Best regards, Mike Grobbel
