An Update

Well the article has generated a response and once again I am amazed I have been so lucky. Julie contacted me and her father Harold was with the 110th National Guard unit from Holdrege, Nebraska. She has generously shared his scrapbook with me and I am happy to report that with her help I will try to tell the story of the 110th Quartermaster, Company A.

Now mind you my dad was not a apart of this company but he walked this same journey just to the north west of Holdrege in Lexington, Nebraska. But they all were part of the 110th Quartermaster.

So Please allow me to introduce you to the Holdrege 110th QM, Company A. members taken about the time they were mustered into Federal Service 23 December 1940  at National Guard Armory.

Thank you Julie for sharing your collection with me. I will do my best to tell the real story of these brave young men. Thank you for sharing your “Dad’s” story with me I just hope I will do it justice.

  1. Good job Nancy.

    It probably doesnt matter but I think that picture was taken in Holdrege at the city auditorium before they left. That is what it looks like to me.

    I know entering all this information is a lot of work so thanks. You got page 2 didnt you?

    Julie

    • Thank you so much for trusting me with all this info. I am fascinated by it. And yes it does matter about where it was taken. I will update the picture with the correct information.

      Thank you!

    • I think I found the right one and will add it to the post.

  2. You two ladies are to be commended… Wonderful partnership and cooperation with the result being more people will remember. Some of those boys were so young looking… I hope they fared well at war…

    • Thanks Mustang Koji! I am so excited to be working with Julie to preserve what we can!

  3. How lucky for you to find someone who has kept records like these that reinforce your own research. I am happy for you Nancy.

    • I do feel like the 110th QM is leading me along! I am blessed!

  4. Progress! Thanks for updating us. These stories are important to tell, and I think it’s wonderful you’ve found someone able to share with you!

    • It seems like every time I think I might be done I find more families willing to share. Our picture album is up to almost one thousand images. Wow!

  5. Hard work to lay it all out to see what these brave souls went through. Congrats!

    • It is fascinating! I can’t wait to share it with you!

      • 🙂 I will be scrolling and reading along 🙂
