    help us to find the soldier SCHUELER

    Good morning,
    we found in FRANCE the dog tag of American soldier.
    We would like to give it to him or his family.
    Please help me to find this soldier or his family.
    information raised on the plate is the following:
    Herbert C Schueler roll: 17161949 born in 1922 in ILLINOIS perhaps in Columbia.
    I give you a photo of the dog tag and a photo of american soldiers near the place where we found the dog tag. ( perhaps herbert schueler is in this photo).





    Thanks

    Re: help us to find the soldier schueler

    Here's a listing for a man with the same name but born in 1926 who enlisted in Harrison County, Indiana. I believe the Columbia, Ill. reference is to the next of kin or 'in case of emergency' name and address (in Columbia).

    Here's a better reference:

    Re: help us to find the soldier schueler

    Here's some more:
    "HERBERT C SCHUELER

    Herbert C. Schueler was born at Columbia, the son of
    William Schueler and his wife nee Ida Oerter. He was
    married to Miss Leola Ludwig, daughter of Philip Ludwig
    and his wife Anna, nee Naumann. This union was blessed
    with one daughter, Wendy Lou.

    Mr. Schueler attended the Columbia public school and
    graduated from the Columbia High School. He attended
    the David Rankin Trade School, taking Architectural
    Drafting and Construction Technique at night school. He
    studied with the Chicago Technical College by correspon-
    dence, taking estimating and construction. While with the
    U. S. Army in France he attended the Biaritz American
    University, Biaritz, France, taking courses relating to con-
    struction.

    Mr. Schueler is a general contractor with Schueler
    Brothers, Contractors and Builders, Inc. He is president of
    the Monroe Building and Supply Co., president of Colum-
    bia Development Co., Inc., and director of Schueler Bros.
    Inc., Credit Union.

    Monroe Building and Supply Co. started in 1952. Offi-
    cers were Herbert Schueler, president; William Schueler,
    vice president; Clarence Schueler, secretary-treasurer.
    They procured buildings from Jefferson Barracks and cut
    them down in sections, transported them to Columbia and
    set them up for lumber storage.

    Schueler Bros. Contractors and Builders was organized
    in 1921 with William Schueler head of the organization.
    In 1938 Clarence Schueler came into the business and in
    1940 Herbert Schueler joined it and the name was changed
    to William Schueler and Sons.

    During World War II when both boys were in the
    service and there was a scarcity of building materials a
    brief interruption in business was necessary. But after the
    return of the boys after the war the two boys carried on
    the business, with the senior partner dropping out. The
    firm became Schueler Bros., Contractors and Builders until
    1959, when the partnership was incorporated.

    Herbert Schueler is president of this incorporation;
    William Schueler, vice president and Clarence Schueler,
    secretary and treasurer.


    He belongs to Columbia Post 581 American Legion,
    and is also a member of the Legion Drill Team.

    Note: This information is as of 1959. I'll keep looking.

    Re: help us to find the soldier schueler

    I think he may still be alive. Another source said a man by that name living in Columbia is 88 years old. That would fit. I called Columbia information, they said that number is restricted (unlisted). I'll keep trying.

    Wow, interesting, hope you find him or some of his family. He would have been in France about the time my father was in WWII. Please keep us informed if you reach someone. Monty

    Wonderful outcome. Our WWII vets are going "missing in action" at a fast clip and not many are left now days. Brings a tear to my eyes because of their uncommon valor. Monty

    dudule44: I'm just a regular American and my views and life don't get featured on the TV news. Thank you for what you done. I got a lot of friends who speak French and I can stumble through it, so merci, merci beaucoup. You deserve an honorable mention.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    There is much more to this story and it will be told during the coming weeks.
    One thing is for sure: It's a race against time.
