Some additional information has come to light. First as to "W. Wheeler", our records do not show that anyone with this served served in the 376.
Second, Jeff sent a copy of his father's "short snorter." see the first image below.
If one rotates the image and looks at the list of names, "W. E. Houser" is clearly visible; along with the date of Aug 17, 1943. My conclusion is that "Wheeler" is Houser.
