My father is the commanding officer of the 284th during the war. I am his son Jack, and was proud to be honored as a guest at the reunion at Ft Rucker where the 284th was formed up and the "Helpmate Ready" document begins the history of the Famous 284th legend! My son Peter I believe typed up the version of the Helpmate Ready document that is now available on the internet. I am looking for an original copy of the Helpmate Ready document that my dad authored and sent a copy to each of the members of the 284th after he wrote the document. PLEASE Does anyone know of a copy that any of the members or their families might have? My copy is missing in action, but I would like to digitally copy the Helpmate Ready hard copy document that Dad had made, and put it up on the internet as a tribute and memorial to the 284th!!!

My father Vernon E. McNelly was part of Battery A 284th Field Batallion. He was wounded in France in August 1944 and received a Purple Heart. I was only 2 when he died at the age of 39 in 1961. I recently started putting together our McNelly family history information when I started studying the letters that my father wrote to his family back home. When I put together all of the timelines, places and events mentioned in the letters and then compared them with historical reports from WW2 I was amazed and very, very proud of him. I was so excited when I found this website. Thank you for having this space so that we can give those brave soldiers a place in history.

I live across the street from one of your members. Warren Shields is my neighbor and has been sharing his memorabilia with me. I have scanned many pics. Warren is doing pretty well. He is 90. Thanks for a useful website to learn about the 284th. I know it was disbanded after the war. Thanks for sharing it.

I am helping a retired WWII veteran find some information about his service in WWII. He originally was a member of the 101st Airborne Division. I received a copy of his last pay voucher when he was discharged, and the last organization listed on the form says he was in Battery A, 284 Field Artillery Battalion. I don't know if the 284 FABN was a holding organization for soldiers rotating back to the United States for discharge or what, but can you or someone else help me find out some additional information about this soldier if he was assigned to the 284 FABN?

Thanks, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

- John

It is with great regret, that I must inform you that Dr. John B. Summers passed away this morning. I just received an e-mail from Dr. John Summers' son, it reads: "Just a note to you informing of my fathers passing away today at 2:30 AM at his home. He was under Hospice Care for the last 5 days of his life. He passed away peacefully and quickly which is all you can ask for. He died at home which is where he wanted to be. He was 90." No news of arrangements at this time.

I was contacted by Dr. Summers' son who informed me that Dr. Summers is very ill. He is home but under hospice care. He is unable to take phone calls or visits. If you would like to send him a card or note, his son is willing to read it to him. Dr. Summers is the leader of our group for many years. He devoted many, many hours in keeping everyone in contact and organizing reunions. He is truly an exceptional person. Dr. Summers has made a positive impact on us all. God be with Dr. Summers.
