Wilbert Hansen’s son Chris Hansen found the information I have been posting about the 3110th Signal Service Battalion and the Tamerville recognition.
Chris’s late father Wilbert Hans Hansen served as a cable splicer in Company C, 3110th Signal Service Battalion as did Felix A. Cizewski my late father.
Our fathers probably knew each other.
Chris reports that except for the photo above almost everything else regarding his late father’s service has been lost.
The town of Tamerville and my Unofficial Informal Archive of the U.S. Army Signal Corps in Northwest Europe in WWII have greatly increased the visibility of the 3110th Signal Service Battalion. That facilitates making connections as the Hansen and Cizewski families have done. That also brings recognition to the service of support troops such as our fathers
