302nd Port Company roster WWII

This partial roster of the 302nd Port Company, 519th Port Battalion is based on an August 1944 list of Good Conduct medal recipients. The men were working on Utah Beach at the time. Officers were not eligible for this award, so they are not included in the list. Unfortunately, many of the names on this document are unreadable. If you recognize one of these guys, please get in touch.

Update: August 27, 2011. William Schlobohm saved a list of home addresses of GIs from this company. His son made copies for me. There are so many names not seen on the August 1944 document that I suspect that Schlobohm's list includes replacements who joined the company at the very end of the war. It also include officers who would not have been part of the August 1944 Good Conduct Medal list:
