Welcome to the “Men Of Company D”


The “Men of Company D”, Fort Sam Houston, Texas Dec. 1941

    This site was created to honor the men of the U.S Army’s Second Division, 23rd Infantry, Company D, who fought courageously in the European Theater of Operations during WWII. As a tribute to my father, Cecil W. Skaines, I want to honor him and the men of Company D by sharing with you information about their sacrifice and gallant service leading to and during the War.

    Most of these men are no longer with us. But their legacy can live forever when we take the time to remember them. Please browse the pages to learn  about the “Men of Company D”.
