Hello,
My name is Matt Sumrall, and I have been searching for all the information on my pawpaw that I can possibly find. He was injured and captured in France, and taken to a POW camp in or near Baden-Baden Germany. I cant find any info on this camp. Please, if anyone new him or knows some specifics on what he may have endured, please contact me. This is very important to me. He earned many medals, and before he passed away, he gave me his original Purple Heart. Thank you for your help, Sincerely.

Dear Matt, As a first step, please contact
George O'Bryan, the Unit Representative to
the Hellcat News. He can put a notice
in the News. He can also put you in touch
with other POWs. I will reply again when
I return from a trip on Monday.

George's phone number.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
