Thanks to Charles Bauch for the identification of the men in the photo.  His father, 1st Sgt Erich Bauch, had collected the signature of every soldier in the photo soon after the photo was taken at Fort Dix.   Some names were partially illegible, but their complete name and rank was identified through my records of the 328th FA Battalion obtained from the National Archives.

SR 13 - Cpl Charles L. Baur - see Good Conduct Medal.
SR 15 - Cpl. Thomas J. Forest received Purple Heart on 2 Jun 44 just south of Rome.  He was wounded by a shell while cooking potatoes.  Photo at Photos from the Italian Front.
SR 16 - S/Sgt Partick Flynn was from New York and there are 3 photos of him at Photos from the Italian Front and Good Conduct Medal.
FR 17-  Capt. William Armstrong was one-half Native Indian.
