    149th Combat Engineers

    I will post when I get a chance to scan them. Right now I'm in the middle of chairing our (Alger Parks and Rec) biggest fundraiser of the year (July 27th), Music in the Park. And on top of that, am having Kai-Ann and her family, stay with us beginning on Monday through Friday, so have my hands full right now. But I am thrilled to add them to my growing collection.

    Oh that is so cool. A little bit of forum history. And you are right, FB and such has nothing over a true forum. Things are set up so that anyone can find archived information, readily and easily. That's why I also gave up on trying to have a VI Corps presence on Facebook. It's too out of control. There's no structure. Post something and good luck finding it later. So I dumped it. I was making more work for myself. Give me a real web and a forum, any day. If you truly want to maintain an historic database, well, there's no other way. FB, is just social chaos.

    Just when you thought it was safe to come back here!

    Hey Darlene: Wow, good to have you back. Hope you are feeling much better. Sounds like you've gone through some hell in the past few years. Capt O, thanks for responding to her post. Gee, almost feels like old times. Oh how I miss those initial days where everyone would join in and we'd keep a discussion going and going. And of course, miss the banterings with our dear WWII veterans. Things just aren't the same, anymore...

    283rd Engineer Combat Battalion (Grandson)

    Excellent. I have put a lot of people together since 2004, including veterans with their old buddies. This has been a very rewarding project and labor of love. I have been repaid over and over with the results.
