Author looking for information
regarding the 255th Infantry Regiment's
role in the battle for Bitche and the
assault on the Siegfried Line
John D. Lukacs, is doing research for a book-"All Americans", the true tale of the 1940 and '41 Montana State football teams, whose entire starting lineup was lost to World War II.  A
member of that team, center Karl Fye, served with the 63rd Infantry Division during the war.  Lt Fye was a member of C Company of the 255th Infantry.  He was killed near
Bliesransbach, Germany in the early morning hours of 15 March 1945.

John  would enjoy the opportunity to speak with anyone who might have served with or knew Lt Fye.  He would also like to talk to any 63rd vets who might have information regarding the
255th's role in the battle for Bitche and the assault on the Siegfried Line as well as other events in which Lt Fye participated.

You can contact John at e-mail address: JLUKACS1@aol.com or call him collect at 724-327-7023
