    Introduction

    Hi everyone. This gives me a great start. Thank you to SonofaMP for the registration information. Can't tell you how much that means to me and my son. I have a question, though...what does the FILM REEL NUMBER 3.276 mean? I can't wait to delve into the links and see what else I can dig up. Look forward to finding out more about my dad's life in the army and WWII. Thanks again everyone.

    Introduction

    Hi everyone. My name is Judy and I live in Georgia. I'm 40 years old. My father, PFC Dewey J. Carver, Jr., was a member of the 175th Engineering Corps during World War II. I remember growing up on his stories of the war but the one that stands out is when he talked about helping to build the Po River Bridge. He always talked of taking us kids over to Italy to see it one day, but he never got the opportunity to do that. I lost my dad Dec. 8, 2007 to alzheimer's disease. His stories are all but gone. I started trying to research his old army regiment but at that time very little could be found on the internet about it. I'm hoping this site will be a blessing and a great help. All of his medals, photos, letters...everything disappeared. I was told one of his aunts got a hold of everything but where it went from her I have no clue. This would mean so much to me to find out all I can about his regiment. I doubt too many of his old unit are still alive, but if anyone has any information, photos especially, of the 175th Engineering I would love to hear it. I'll be reading through this site as I have time. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and put feelers out for what I'm looking for. Thanks for reading.
