Group Photo
After going for a couple of years on this site as unidentified, we finally have the identity of the men in this photo.  This
information was supplied by David Cline of Boone NC, son of William A Cline, Medical Detachment, 254th  Infantry
Regiment.  It appears that most of the men listed were in Med Det, 254th Infantry Regiment, so I will assume that they all
were:  So here goes:  Front Row (L-R) Rodgers, Hanadel, Mitchell, Kenah, Parangian, Wishnow and Hirt.  Middle Row
(L-R) O"Conner, Mainini, Gezzer.  Standing (L-R) Suttle, William A. Cline (David's Dad), Steiner, Jones, Dort, Ontko,
Olikoff, Frances, League, Morrissey, Pratt, Noll, Knox, Walczak and Rosen.
