There are ways to research officers. Heinrich Sermersheim, was the commanding officer of the 343rd Artillery Regiment (AR). He also served in AR 74 and was commander of II Battalion and XO of AR 103 when the war started as a Major. He made Col. 1.3.1943. He is not listed as being killed so a service file my be on file in NARA (Virginia) for him. You can contact fellow WA member Mike Constandy and he can copy the file for you for a fee. Given his rank I would guess he also had WWI service. All that and most likely at least one photo of him would be in his service file.

Thank You Johnny
Great information, I will check it up.
I have one of his helmets, and there is also AR 74 written on the liner, now I know why.
