H Company 16th Infantry Big Red One

In Memory of Captain Anthony J Prahl and all the men who served with 
              H Company 16th Infantry, First Infantry Divison In WWII 

Here is an Incomplete Roster for the Enlisted men of H Company in WW II

H Company Roster WW II

This list is rewritten just as it appears in the roster from WW II it has misspellings, some names were illegible due to a bad photocopy, and not in alphabetical order. I have also discovered some errors in the roster, spelling mistakes, double entries, and so on.
This is an ongoing project and will be constantly updated with new information. I have, however, left out the addresses that are on the roster out for respect for privacy.

   If you are the relative of one of the men or one of the veterans of the company please feel free to contact me via this site.

H Company's  S-3 Statistics were NEVER COMPLETED they read INCONCLUSIVE in the S-3 Report in the National archives in D.C. I have been attempting to rebuild their record. This project has so far taken me 5 years of research and is a daunting task. ANYONE wanting to volunteer to help is MUCH APPRECIATED!


I am still trying to get an officers roster for this unit. Soon I will be listing the last names of the officers I have photos of, as my grandfather was smart enough to write what he remembered in his photo album before he passed away in 1984.


Information after name: serial number, state, county, place of enlistment, date of enlistment Birth year, and State of residence.
