shared by son Chip Taylor
"My father, Jesse Gerald Taylor, served in the 65th, 259th Infantry, C Company. He was severely wounded just days before the war ended and spent months in the hospital, eventually discharged (medical) at Camp Atterbury, Indiana in September 1945. He would never talk about the war and his records were burned in the St Louis Records Center fire. "

" He said he was in the 259th regiment. And remembers a Lieutenant Kunzi as in command. He said camp or fort Shelby in Mississippi and then camp or fort blanding in Fl. He said it's still there. He was in the infantry. "

"My grandad, Carl F. Walker, was a 2nd lieutenant (and at some point 1st lt) in company A of the 259th infantry. He's listed as platoon commander/infantry unit commander. He went to ocs at ft Benning until Sept 1944. He received a purple heart for the battle near saaurlautern because of a mine explosion March 18, 1945 (they had to amputate a lge). I know he received 2 bronze stars but not sure for what. We have the purple heart but not the bronze stars. He met my grandma at the hospital in Atlanta after he was shipped back. He died in 1993."
