I happened upon this interview of Lloyd Renfro (recorded 2008), conducted by the AM talk radio host of Hometown Heroes. Lloyd was living in Fresno at the time of the interview. He served in the 144th on the California coast and went on to form the 733rd with 90 other soldiers from the 144th (along with grandpa Ivo and Ambrose Little). He was a message commander (actual title?) who would relay messages between HQ Battery, the gun batteries, and the Forward Observers.
