    This is wonderful. I'm sure he felt right at home. How nice to have a warm welcome. Makes me happy that this took place. Keep it going!
  2. Sorry. This is a tough assignment...

  5. While I don't believe this section points to any specific sp guns, it does give the history of the 1108th (48th and 235th Bns) during winter 43/44 in Italy.
  6. Unfortunately not many left here. Too many of my boys have left this earth.
  7. Sorry, not at this time, at least for me. Don't give up.

    The "c" stands for combat and the B.N. stands for battalion! :-)
  11. Hi:  Received the following message this week. Please get in touch with him. This is wonderful news. So glad to hear that George is still with us. Marion

    I'm trying to get in touch with user: vette97.  In around 2011 he posted an article/interview transcript about his meetings/interviews with WWII vet George Jackson (101st Airborne).  I'm a volunteer with a WWII Roundtable group and we're going to have George Jackson as our speaker in September.  I was wondering if vette97 would give us permission to use the photos he attached to his article about George: the "double picture" that shows George in the same stance holding an M1 Garand rifle: in one pic during WWII and in one pic in around 2011.  Does vette97 mind if we use that photo on our website advertisement for George Jackson's speaking engagement with us, and to send to local area newspapers for possible inclusion in an article about his upcoming talk?  Or are those photos copyrighted and we can't use those?

    Hard to believe, but I had never seen this footage before.
