      The Forum is back - updates on progress!   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 many images are currently missing. I need to access the old server again, and copy the uploads folder to our new server. Evidently (for some reason), many of the photos/doc did not transfer. I am working on this, so thank you for your patience.

  1. Hi Marion, Thanks for uploading them. They look great. 24th Arm'd, Thanks for the comment. Glad you like them. Scott
  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
  4. Marion, I just picked this up for $4 at Half Price Books. Just started reading. Very interesting reading so far.
  5. 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
  7. Hello, I have some patches from my grandfather and I cannot id. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. 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
