I am a new member to this forum and look forward to many interesting discussions. My interest in joining is research into the wartime experiences of several members of my family, whose basic information is in my signature below. I was hoping by starting by asking if anyone knows where to locate a unit diary for the 116th Field Artillery, US Army? My father, Hans Stern, whose picture is my avatar, served with them in WWII in the Phillipines and i know very little about his experiences overseas. I know he volunteered, started out as a pribvate and left the service as a Sergeant, and received the Phillipines Liberation ribbon, the Asiatic Pacific Service Medal, the WWII Victory Medal and the Good Conduct Medal. You can see some of his medals and such on my militaria page, here:

Any guidance for a rookie like myself would be greatly appreciated.

Incorrect Unit (Should be 116th, not 114th)
