Ron said that you weren't the one he knew. The other guy was with the 39th. Art. It was in the new division area next to the Special Forces area.

I am still looking for Captain Antonio V. Smaldone and still NO LUCK. Here is where I have been searching.

called the local VA he hasn't made any claims or even medical care
called almost all the Smaldones in the USA
he last place of residents was Cohoes, New York
no public records in that city
called the local VFW and ect. they knew one but he turned out to be in his 80's not him
the above one told me he adopted him as a child and they lost contact
checked with the local library and they said they have no records of him checking out books
checked with the local Catholic Churches
called Albany, New York to see if he was a member of any of the Diocese in New York area
called the area funeral homes and the name doesn't sound familar

Other than these can you make any suggestion? It is driving me NUTS.
