Unfortunatly I do not at the moment however I do know that someone in my family has a picture of several men in the company. I am unsure as to where it is. My great grandfather served in the company too. :)
It would be difficult to provide a detailed history of Company K to include its troop movements, battles, casualties and such. The 3rd Infantry Divison served in Sicily and Italy, including time at Anzio Beach. After the fall of Rome in June 1944, they participated in the invasion of Southern France where they fought into Germany. There is a detailed history of the 3rd Infantry Regiment that was published soon after the war. Maybe you can obtain a copy through an inter-library loan. Or you can purchase it from the publisher; Nashville Press. "History of The Third Infantry Division in World War II" by Donald G. Taggart. Battery Press, 1945

The 112th Infantry was one of the four infantry regiments in the 28th Infantry Division in WWI. The 28th ID is in peacetime the Pennsylvania National Guard. More than a dozen National Guard Divisions were deployed to France, more than "regular army" or so-called National Army (draftee) divisions. The 28th ID was in the line in several different parts of the western front in France. The division was credited with participation in the Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Oise-Aisne, Ypres-Lys and Meuse-Argonne campaigns. During WWI the Division took a total of 14,139 casualties (KIA-2,165 ; WIA-11,974). US WWI divisions were almost twice as big as WWII divisions, A US WWI division had nearly 28,000 men at full strength.

he 28th Division traces its history from the briefly active 7th Division, formed in May 1917. In July 1917 or later, the division was renamed the 28th Division. It was activated in September 1917. Its initial organization included the 55th Infantry Brigade (109th and 110th Infantry Regiments) and the 56th Infantry Brigade (111th and 112th Infantry Regiments). During World War I it was involved in the Meuse-Argonne, Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Oise-Aisne, and Ypres-Lys operations. During the war it took a total of 14,139 casualties. An honor battalion of Pennsylvania National Guardsmen of the "Iron Division" (These are not soldiers, these are iron men. Gen. Pershing) dedicated the Pennsylvania World War Memorial in Argonne, France, in 1928.
The 316th Engineer Bn was the engineer battalion of the 91st Infantry Division. Every US division had as one of its units an engineer battalion. This battalion took care of things like clearing minefields, blowing up obstructions and enemy pillboxes, or anything else that needed blowing up, bridge building, camp construction, and so on. Few engineer battalions published their own history, let alone individual companies within the battalion. A company generally had around 200 men, at full strength. The history of Company C and the 316th Eng Bn would be generally that of the 91st ID. The 91st Infantry Division did publish a history, "The History of the 91st Infantry Division" in 1947, through the Infantry Journal Press. This is long out of print, but if you'll watch you could probably find a copy on eBay. Battery Press of Nashville has done reprint editions of many of the WWII divisional histories, but they are not as nice as the originals (batterypress.com). See related links below for a brief history of the 91st Infantry Division.

The history of the 4021st Quartermaster Truck Company dates back to World War II. There does not seem to be any additional information on this particular division of the company.

Yes, mostly if the Private was in the infantry, or in a speciality that supported the infantry.
I don't think it did. My grandfather was in Company L and the story was he drove a truck as the war ended a few months after they arrived. I think they were part of the "watch on the Rheine"
A "runner" is a messenger. Not only in the infantry, but in any unit. The greatest runner in history (because of who he was, not because of his "runner" duties), was...believe it or not, ADOLPH HITLER during the First World War (previously known as the Great War). He was a Corporal (an enlisted man) in the Bavarian Army (part of the German Army).
