      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.

  2. Hello, I have been trying to get info from NARA on my grandfathers records but still have not gotten anything yet. I have some photos of him in Germany and Belguim. Here are a couple of photos. In the first one, my grandfather is on the left. Hope you like. Scott
  3. Hello everybody, I have been researching my grandfather's military service history and found a history of the 1262nd ECB. I thought it would be appropriate to post it. Enjoy. Thanks. Scott 20120719122826465.pdf

    Hello Marion and Christoph, Thanks for checking. Patchman
  6. Hi Marion, Thanks for the links. I have seen several of them and they do contain a lot of good information. I am waiting on a package from the Eisenhower Library on the 1262nd. I have also sent a request to the Corps of Engineers to see if they have any data. My dad has some pictures of my grandfather from Germany he will be sending me. I will post them as soon as I can get them scanned. I am slowly getting some of the puzzle pieces into place. Thanks again for the help. Patchman

  8. Hello everybody, I am researching my grandfather's WW2 history but I have very limited information. I do have his discharge papers and I know he was with the 1262nd CEB, Co B and was shipped to ETO on Oct. 29, 1944 and arrived on Nov. 9th, 1944. His unit was originally assigned to the 1st Army and later to Patton's 3rd Army. I have requested his military file from NARA and have some information coming on the 1262nd. I would like to know what he did in ETO and see any photos. Thank you in advance for your help. Patchman
