    Good day everyone.

    I adopted 2 graves of 2 heroes that helped with the liberation of europe.
    To bad they lost there lives in this battle.

    Now i wanted to know more about them and their units. Maybe if its possible to get in touch with family, maybe to find a picture of them

    Here is some more information about them:
    Pfc Raymond W. Hanish
    517 Prcht Inf Regt.
    Servicenumber: 35902728
    Dod; 26 januari 1945 at St Vith, Belgium

    Pfc Robert E. Inman
    232nd Ordnance Bomb Disposal Company
    Servicenumber: 35332453
    Dod: 17 March 1945 At Germany


    I requested a IDPF of sir Hanish last year in september. I Still didnt recieved annything.
    I Hope someone can give me some more information about those 3 Heroes, also about the units and maybe some family to get in touch.
    I allready looked some up about the units, i only found something about the 517 PIR but it wasnt not that much info. And i only find out that the 232nd OBDC was a unit of the 3th army of Patton, but i cannot find it anny where to check if its true.

    If someone know some good books about these units you can always gif me the info about it.
    I really want to know more about these 2 men

    According to the 1930 Census:
    Father, Delbert D. Inman; Mother, Mary E, Inman; Brother Lloyd L. Living in Madison, Hancock, Ohio.

    According to the 1940 Census, he was living with a different brother Herbert in Findlay, Hancock, Ohio. He was working a delivery boy for the meat market.

    Here is the 17th PIR page on the ww2-airborne.us website. He is listed on the Roll of Honor which indicates he was in D Company.

    Regarding your IDPF request, it shouldn't take more than a year to get it. I would send them an email stating when you submitted it and asking when you can expect to receive it. I did that recently and they sent it to me within a day or two.

    Everything I found puts the "232nd Ordnance Bomb Disposal Company" in the Pacific, and it was disbanded in 1943.

    I found this link for a Congressional speech in which an Arkansas congressman lists American BD/EOD casualties:

    The photo of PFC Inman's marker has "232 Bomb Disposal Plat". That is pretty much the same unit name, just abbreviated to fit on the marker. Unfortunately, I haven't found much more yet. Perhaps someone will have better luck.
