Of course, you are right, Pacifist. Well done. My first thought was that it was the 129th. However, I wasn't positive and thought maybe my personal interest in the 129th had affected my recollection. I was also did not have time to do the necessary checking as you did. Here's a page from the book Armored Thunderbolt which shows the photo with a similar caption to the one you described. And the photo from page 377 of CARTWHEEL... (ref. to post #19 above). View attachment 21413 It is amazing how many blogs, forums, and other websites have wrong info regarding these photos. I have seen the soldiers ID'd as Americal Division in Jan 1944, Marines on Palau, etc. Capn, though he may have not gotten the Regiment right, he did have the right Division and branch of service. Lucky Legs II may very well have supported the 145th and/or 148th at times during the War. It's not surprising if 20+ years later, he got that one detail wrong. IMO, that letter is a treasure, just as much as the photos and other mementos that you have. Thank you for sharing them here.
