      Upgrade July 26,2017   07/27/17

      We had an upgrade to the system this morning and I had to temporarily disable the theme/colors/look-feel of the forum. The forum was acting strangely and was moving along at a snails pace, so had to perform some tests. After I disabled all the customizations, things improved immensely, so... I am hoping to add our colors back, but till then...bear with me. Thanks!

      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

    Thinking today of the service and sacrifice of Seaman 2nd Class Bryl G. Bowman, who went missing in action on this date 75 years ago. Seaman Bowman was a crew member aboard the USS Houston, which on 1 March 1942 was caught in a desperate battle with the Japanese fleet and was sunk off of the Java coast.

    That's the Memphis Belle crew and it was signed by one of the men. The document at the top is a certificate regarding the Battle of the Bulge. My father's name and unit are inscribed on it. I received that years ago. The airplane is a signed painting (I also have the signed book) from a veteran I knew years ago. It was a Christmas present to my husband . It's Herschel H Green of the 325th Fighter Group. Here it is, unframed.

    Do you know that I have a story about the engineer who posed for this poster? His name is Vincent Leckey and you can read all about him here. I also have a signed copy of this poster, that he gave me, shortly before he passed. It's hanging in my office and I'm very proud to have it! And Gary, it looks great!
