Hello, My name is Jared Ray Shank. I wanted to know if anyone has served with Lester Ray Smith. I would like to know more about his service in WWII. He sat me down once and spoke to me about his service, that was it. Although at a young age, i greatly appriciated my grnadfather and he has distilled many of his traits and ethics and morals into me. If anyone could tell me about my grandfather it would be greatly appricated!! Thank you for your help and god bless!!

Sincerely.

Jared RAY Shank

Dear Jared, I am a Legacy member of the Association. I suggest you email Ted
Glogovac. He is the Unit Representative
of the 494th. Ted is also a Legacy Member.
He can put an announcement in the Hellcat
News, and he can give you a Roster of the
men in your grandfather's company.
email: ted.glogovac@jeppesen.com
cell phone: 408-499-0188

Good luck. You can contact me at

Sorry the first one was sent accidentally with a copy of your post. ..

My reason for Posting is I had an Uncle Lester Ray Smith , who passed away about 1963. He was in the service and was of the age to have served in WWII. The last known residence I know of is Salinas California. He was my Dad's brother.Now I don't know if this is the same person could you let me know one way or the other . I am trying to find more of my Smith family
