102nd Balloon Barrage Batallion

My grandfather now 83 years old is trying to find any other member of the 102nd Balloon Barrage Batallion. His name and rank is W.W. Garrett PFC in the US Army. He thinks that his whole batallion was lost after he took schrapnel in Solerno. He says that his batallion was stationed at the Solerno Beach Head. He is not one to go into details of his time in the war but I feel that his time there has affected the rest of his life. He obviously does not have much time left here with us and maybe finding a member of this squad, or someone he knows, might give him a closure that he has not had. He took schrapnel and was sent home. I am not positive of the year. He did say that once he got to the states, he send letters to guys he knew, but he did not get a response. If you can help me in any way please email me. I feel I need to help him find closeure before it is too late.
