Hello Greg,

I am currently researching my great grandfather Joseph Sampona who I was always told served in WWI. He only spoke Italian so the family has no real information about what he did in the war. He came to America when he was 15 and his was a barber by trade.

On his Veteran burial card is listed the following:

Serial Number: 3,113,895
Dates of Service: 5/29/18 - 4/9/19
Served in Army, Rank: Private
Organization: Aux. Remount Depot, 304th Qtmst.

I was hoping to that this information would tell me about where he was stationed, what he did and if it is possible that images exist of the soldiers as we have no pictures of him at all.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Jim Mirra

Hi Jim,

I am truly sorry but I have very little information on Remount Depot No. 304 or your great grandfather Joseph Sampona. I have not had a chance to find the unit history or records for this unit and no one has offered any information on RD No. 304. I do have information on other remount depots and basically they were all very similar on how they were run and the daily life being in being in these units. Eventually I hope to have the records and the rosters and this should give you more information. Out there somewhere is a unit picture and there again hopefully we will find a copy. Please let me know if you would like to post your great grandfather's name under Remount Depot No. 304. It's a good way to get some interest by others and to make a tribute to him.

Take good care
