      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. Can you possibly look through your photos and information to see if Tony is any of them. His real name was Alfred Coesens, but he went by Tony. Unfortunately had PDSD and never really recovered after the war. Given some of the photos I have, I can understand.
  2. My email is repbrock@msn.com. I would love to trade information and documents. I am most happy to send all the information I have. One of the more interesting artifacts I have is a homemade knife with the initials "RSW" It has the name of the town, which I can't read completely "???sheck, Texas and then it has all the places this person was at starting with Nova Scotia, Scotland, England...Germany" You can read them if you look closely. It also has some writing on the back that I can't read. Would be great to know who RSW was.
  3. Here are a few more
  4. I have more photos, which I can post. Hope it's not too much. Would very much like to know if there are any living members of the 113th or 344? Can you link this to 344th?
  5. Hello Walt's Daughter,

    My Uncle Tony served in both the 113th and 344tth.  Do you know if there are any living members of either of these two units?  

    Happy to share his album with the community.

  6. I have a number of photos which I believe we taken both here in the US and overseas. Happy to share them.
  7. Tony started with the 113 and ended with the Company E. 344th.
  8. Tony served in Company E as well.... I only wish I could have found you sooner...
  9. My Great Uncle served in the 113th. Does anyone know whether there are any surviving members? I have a number of photos and information I am happy to share.
  10. I just placed a brick for my Grand Uncle Tony at the WWII Museum in New Orleans. http://www.nationalww2museum.org/give/road-to-victory-brick-campaign.html While looking through some of his papers I found his discharge, service certificate and military ID. Will post
