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.
