Sister wants info about Ernest Barnes
I have been researching a deceased USA Pvt. 1st Class Ernest L. Barnes, originally from Oneida OH, who was an early casualty in the Battle of the Bulge, presently buried at the American Cemetery Henri-Chapelle, Belgium.
His sister has asked me to dig up his military records. With the help of Congressman Ralph Regula, I have uncovered a great deal.
His sister, Wilda, has many red embroidered banners that Pvt. Barnes sent his mother from Camp Van Dorn MS.
I guess the reason I have made an effort to contact you is for any information regarding the 99th during World War II. Any information regarding Camp Hayes, Camp Van Dorn, and Camp Maxey, would be appreciated.
