I was trying to contact former members or their relatives, from the 307th Counter Intelligence Corp, to see if anyone new my father, and to my surprise there was none. So, I decided to create a place where Vets, Family, and Friends could meet.
Victor deKoenigsberg, my dad, served in the 307th CIC from 1945 till may 1946. Was wondering if anyone served with him or know of him. Any info will be appreciated.

I was looking thru some old photos that were my Dad’s. I have old pictures from him in the Service. On the back of one he talked about the building in the picture being his billeted during the temp. duty with the CIC March 1945. He was over in Germany, Franch and Switzerland. In April they were at a billet in Stadhagen. I have a feeling it was a city in Germany. I am going to look it up just to check.
I even have pictures of Hitler’s Eagels Nest. It is asham because I have photos of some soldiers but no names on them. I am sure some family would like to have them. My Dad passed away a few years ago so I can’t ask him anything about them. The pictures are great though.
I didn’t know what the CiC meant till I Googled it on the computer. There was no Google back in 1945. I have another picture from July 1945. They were in Bad Aibling, Germany. I can’t seem to find anything with CIC division. Maybe, my Dad knew your Dad. There are more pictures I will have to look for to see if I can find anything further. This is all very interesting. Do you know anything further about your Dad as to where he went and stayed etc.
Send me an email if you like. Maybe I have a picture of your Dad and don’t even know it.
Thank you so much for posting here and your offer. Email is on the way.
My husband was in the CIC in 1946 stationed in France. Screening German Prisoner
Anne: thank you so much for posting here. Please feel free to share anything you want.
I have been trying to get some info regarding my dad but, unfortunalty, it seems that nothing is available.
My father was an investigations officer in the cic shaef [Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Forces] in germany during 1946-47
I just accidentally found this while looking for info on my dad as well.

307th CIC (301 Investigator)
My dad passed away in September of 1973.
The only info I have at this point is what is on his discharge papers.
Hi there, and thanks for posting. Yes, all related to the CIC has been kept classified, and getting all info regarding their activity is truely an oddesy. Inspite of having it sign into law that all WWII Nazi related papers should be declassified (which probably includes intel documents in it) theyhave not been declassified, and I doubt it will be in the near future.And, just like you, I came to find out just by coincidence. One thing you might try is to contact the National Archives and see if they can provide you with any info.
My father, Frederick B. Hobe, was with the CIC in southern France. Was just looking at the two different return address on his letters to Mom:
970/77 CIC Team – 307th CIC Det
44th CIC Detachment
I have a picture of him and one of his teams and, post-war, he and over a dozen of his team kept in touch; I have a list of their names as well.
Believe his team was connected to Operation Paperclip, which rounded up and/or accepted the defections of the rocket scientists. He spent some time debriefing Werhner von Braun and sometimes just enjoying picking his brilliant and arrogant brain.
