  1. Received my signed copy of the newly released book, Desperate Valour - Triumph at Anzio, from my friend and author, Flint Whitlock. Thank you so much and truly appreciated the mention in the acknowledgments section of the book. ...Slight boo-boo though, my dad is listed as being part of the 36th. Should have been 540th, however... it's the thought that counts. Could see how this happened. :-)

    Welcome to the forum, Judy. Wow, I was drooling when I read about the Luger. My dad used bring his out on occasion too, and I always loved it. For some reason when he passed in 1967, my mom either threw it out, or gave it away (along with his German officer's sword), when they were supposed to go to me. I never forgave her, and she would never divulge what happened to those items. Makes me so sad. Do you have it? Thanks for joining. Talk to you soon.

    the Chevalier De La Legion D'Honneur

    We have a topic on the forum. And the recipient must be living too. I could not get it for my deceased father.
  12. GREAT NEWS!! Dear 36th'ers: I'll be brief, but wanted to let you know that we've been blessed with a miracle - Captain John Fallon has made a complete recovery and is in good spirits. I just returned his phone call after he left a heartfelt message on my phone this week. Can't tell you how wonderful it was to speak with him and to hear him laugh and cajole with me. Warmly, Marion

    149th Engineer Combat BTN Company B

    As opposed to your other search, this one is easy, for we have several topics on the forum regarding this unit. Simply type "149th" into the search button located at the upper right-hand corner of this forum. :-) Also look through our photo gallery, for there are also some images from the war.

  15. Not a word since we found out he was in a private home (from post in 2016). No one ever got back with me, which was a real shame.
