This website is dedicated to our father David O. Meeker, Jr., and to all his fellow soldiers in the 14th.  They served with merit in the United States with the 2nd Army, and in Europe supporting the 1st Army in its successful fight to help defeat the armed forces of Nazi Germany.  

Unfortunately, since 1945 the knowledge of who these men were and what they did has become scattered, forgotten, and even lost.  This website is intended to be the focal point for collecting what information and images remain, and for presenting them as a comprehensive record of these 'GI's.'  

This history would be much poorer were it not for the generous help of those listed below.  Our thanks to each of you.  To learn how you can contribute, please visit the Help Needed page.
