Hi, I am looking for any picture that anyone may have of Troop A, specifically of my grandfather Robert J Bochte. He is now 89 years of age and his health is unfortunately declining. I have been looking for pictures of him during his military service and this picture is the only one I've found so far. It was alocated in this website's gallery.

I believe my grandfather is the man crouching third from the left, wearing glasses. I could be mistaken, but it has quite a large resemblance to him.

If anyone has any pictures including him, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Adam Bell

Adam, You have asked for pictures of
Bob Bochte. The best possibility would
be to contact the Unit Rep, Bob Payne, who
can put your request in the Hellcat News.
Alternatively, contact Judy Jansky, the
co-rep.

However, if I were in your shoes, I would want to know what the 92nd recon did. Click
on BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES to the left.
Scroll down to SQUADRON HISTORY OF THE 92ND
RECON... You will be impressed.

Also, Click on ORAL HISTORY VIDEOS.
Click on Battalion. Find 92nd Recon
A company. These men fought with Bob
Bochte.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

Thank you for the contact information, I have sent an email to both of them. As for the other suggestions you made, I am downloading and will be listening to both audio files from members of Troop A.

The Squadron History unfortunately was absent of a section on Troop A, but I have yet to read the majority of the pages and hope to find something. I did locate at the end being awarded the Purple Heart which I was already aware of and that he was a Corporal.

The Table of Contents is in error. Troop
A follows a brief section on Headquarters.
Go page by page beginning with Headquarters.
