      The Forum is back!!!!   05/11/17

      Oh my gosh, can't tell you what a relief it is to have our forum back. I am simply beside myself with joy! Many of you know, but just as many do not, that I experienced a severe server crash, two weeks ago today. I therefore "temporarily lost" ALL my websites, including the VI Corps main site, this forum, No Bridge Too Far, the VI Corps Jukebox and more than a dozen client sites... Without going into all the gory details, I had to purchase a new server, then start all over from scratch. I did have backups of all the sites, but it's been a real ordeal setting up the server, then one by one, reinstalling each site. I'm almost there, but still have a ways to go, but just got the forum back online, on May 11, 2017 at 12:22. I'm hoping to have the VI Corps main site back by the weekend.  And yes, I am aware of several minor problems, including the fact that if you hit the HOME button, it takes you to a "screwy" page. What's up with that??? And I'm also aware that you cannot pull up the emoticons, etc. Working away to try and get these bugs, sorted out! 

VI CORPS AND 5TH & 7TH ARMIES

Would love to hear from anyone that was involved in the campaigns that the 36th, 39th, or 540th participated in. This includes the 3rd, 34th, 36th or 45th Infantry Divisions, the 1st Armored Division, 82nd Airborne or any other related units. Please note that all the above units were a part of the VI Corps, 5th and/or 7th Armies during the ETO from 1942-1945, some for more extended periods than others.

Thanks for your participation. Your stories make this site even better!
