From 12th Cavalry e-mail
Daddy is so excited to be receiving information about his unit. Today he asked me to send you an email and ask if you could have the historian try to locate two of his buddies. Sam Castellano from Tampa, FL. The other is Donald Elsenpeter. Daddy is not sure of the spelling and thought he was from "up around New York" somewhere. I guess after all these years it's hard to remember names, places, spelling etc.
Trooper Joe Richard was probably known as either "Joe Richard" or simply "Russell". He was in Troop D, 12th Cavalry Regiment, mortar section/squad and his address is:
Joe Richard Russell
1 Luverne Street
Luverne, AL 36049-1660
Thanks for anything you can do.
Joe Richard Russell's daughter,
Susan Russell Reeves
