    I have also found out that the US Army 149th Engineer combat battalion ( assigned to the 6th engineers special brigade ) was stationed in south brent for a while . I found out that a corporal james woerner ( 32076581 ) wrote in a diary while stationed in south brent . He later went to omaha beach aboard LCI (L) - 92 .

    Ash--My father was assigned to the Dental Section of the 316th. I visited the US archives last week and copied--electronically several of the interesting records of the 316th to include a unit history from organization to October of 1944. I would be happy to send this to you via email. It will probably be easier to accomplish this via out of band communications. My email address is Lynn.McNulty@verizon.net.

    First of all some bad news , the buildings that where part of the 316 station hospital where demolished in december 09 , it saddens me to think that all that history is lost forever now .
    On a brighter note I have been in touch with a charity that as got quite alot of relics from the site before it was demolished , unfortunatly not alot of the relics come from the hospital itself but from the polish refugees that moved in afterwards. As we all know the US Army threw large quanties of equipment away , the dump site as never been found . I have had a very long talk with the charity who have permission to enter the site & they are interested in finding the dump site .
    We are hoping that we can get enough interest to recover any relics & we are also hoping to gain permission to erect a memorial to the 316th either on the site or in stover park .

    Hello Ash, my father served with the 316th Station Hospital. He was a Lieutenant in charge of medical supplies. There's a picture of some of the unit here at this website:

    He knew and mentioned (when I was a child) the Majorie Honstead listed in another post.
