 "Your Division Commander tells me he has a fine division and it's ready for combat. I have asked him to write me a letter two weeks after I commit you to battle and tell me if he still has a fine division."

List of casualties : Company "L", 378th Infantry Regiment

  Information below came from copies of the official Morning Reports filed by Company L.  Such reports, filed by all infantry companies were written on  3 ¼” x 7 ¼” (85 mm. X 181 mm.) forms showing the date, organization, location, and number of officers and enlisted men present and assigned, listing all transfers of personnel in and out of the unit, including casualties.  Occasionally a brief comment about the unit’s activities were included. Since the report was filed in the  morning it reflected events that occurred the preceding day and night. For example a soldier wounded between 0800 on  Monday  and 0600 Tuesday would be reported on the Tuesday Morning Report. In heavy combat sometimes several days passed before all casualties were accounted for.


  Paul R.Schlitz obtained this material from the National Personnel Records Center (Military Personnel Records), 9700 Page Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri 63132 in 1988 for the preparation of a book.  Copies were made by a poor photographic process, and by now some pages are barely readable. Non-combat injuries are not included.

My specials thanks to Paul R. Schlitz for his great help to etablish the casualty list of "L" Company, 378th Infantry, 95th Inf

Total Casualties : 146 of which 29 were KIA


  It is difficult to total those wounded since some were wounded three times during the combat tour. The above total 146 combat casualties, 116 wounded, 29, killed and one missing.  The latter was killed by a sniper in Endsdorf, and the body could not be recovered.  The listing does not include the few combat fatigue cases.  In the above totals I have changed the status of Sampson O’Dell from wounded to killed.  Although the Morning Report lists him as wounded, Paul R.Schlitz verified his death in another record.

  When Company L entered combat, it was at full strength consisting of six officers and one hundred-eighty-six enlisted men. 

  The attack on the Sauberg, near Unter Felsberg, Germany, on 30 November 1944 was L Company’s deadliest battle.  It began at 1430 and ended at sundown, less than two hours later.
