- Jeff Giambrone Collection (317th)
An avid WW II collector, Jeff picked up a collection of 50 photographs taken by an officer in the 80th Infantry Division. While the officer who owned these photographs never identifies himself by name, he does identify his comrades, and the ones he has been able to find information on all belonged to the 317th Infantry Regiment. He is hoping that if the photos are put on the web, someone will be able to indentify the officer who owned the pictures, and some of the men in them, many of whom are only identified by last name. Some of the pictures were taken in 1944 when the unit was still in the United States, but the majority are taken in 1945 after the fighting ended.
