The 110th Medical Battalion -
Fighting For Life

This site is one of several on the 'net dedicated to Combat Medics. It has a special focus on one unit in particular, Company A of the 110th Medical Battalion, which was attached to the 35th Infantry Division throughout the war, and saw significant action in Europe from it's arrival in France on July 6, 1944 through VE-Day and thereafter in the occupation. My father, Leon B. Cohen, then of Brooklyn NY, served with Company A of the 110th from February 9, 1944 until his discharge in November of 1945.

Three members of Company A were killed while serving their country in an effort to save the lives of others. They were Private Joseph Toth of Alpha NJ, Private First Class Chester Zaleski of Sayreville NJ, and Private First Class William Cook of Lonaconing MD. In addition Technician 3rd Class Chester F. Lemon of Hastings NE passed away from illness while serving in the ETO.
From Company B, seven men were killed in action while providing aid to their fellow soldiers. They were T/5 James Gollinger of Massena NY, Private First Class Harry Casey of Raven VA, Private First Class Gerald Fenner of Carthage MO, Private Louis Beauchaine of West Warwick RI, Private Jack Benevento of New Haven CT, Private Eugene Creekmore of Tulare CA, and Private Ralph Hackmeier of Wayne NE.
