    Very cool!
  2. WWII pics...

    Hi "Granddaughter": I moved your initial post to the WWII Engineer section, for you posted in our WWI section by mistake. I also merged your comment to the original topic, for you placed it by itself. Anyhow, welcome to the forum and thanks for joining.
  3. George Jackson, 326th Airborne Engineering Battalion

    Thank you so much for your very kind words. Always pleased to see things coalesce. Can't wait to view the video later today.
  4. 1301 Engineers (Company E)

    Welcome: The records from NARA in Maryland are the archived unit records. The records for personnel were/are from NARA in St Louis. Two different places. Plus I encourage every newbie to PLEASE READ my post in the RESEARCH section, which contains pertinent information for anyone doing research on their loved ones. Happy to report that we have a ton of info here (the forum) and the main site on this unit. Please type "1301st" in the SEARCH boxes in both places.
  5. George Jackson, 326th Airborne Engineering Battalion

    Pat: So good to hear from you. It was such a surprise to see your post this morning and was even more delighted to hear that George is still with us. Please send him my love. The photos are great and he looks like he hasn't lost his step. God bless him. You know what? I haven't seen that book either. Even though you say it's a tiny book, still every time we find something, it just adds more to our stories and fills in another gap. Wonderful. A few years back, our group held our WWII reunion in Reading. We had a splendid time and a nice turn out. We weren't there in June, but met in October. Keep in touch and really, so glad to see you here once again.

    Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
  10. There is a new building dedicated to Abie Abraham, called the Abie Abraham VA Clinic Healthcare Center in Butler, PA. His wife told me this fantastic news in a Christmas card. Here's to you Abie. Thank you for letting me know about this, Chris. Glad we are keeping in touch. S/Sgt. Abie Abraham was stationed during WWII with the 18th infantry in New York; 3 years with the 14th infantry in Panama, there he was a light-weight boxing champ and trainer; 15th Infantry, unassigned in China, while the Paney was sunk; 30th Infantry, Presidio, San Francisco; 31st Infantry, Manila, Philippines, there for nine years. He fought , was captured, endured the Bataan Death March, as a POW for three and a half years, was beaten, stabbed, shot, survived malaria and starvation to be rescued by the 6th Rangers. He stayed behind at the request of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, two and a half more years disinterring the bodies of his fallen comrades, from the Death March and the prison camps. He helped to identify their bodies and see that they were properly laid to res.. M/Sgt Abraham was promoted in 1945. He came back to the U.S, where he served as a recruiter. He also served a few more years in Germany until his retirement, with 30 years of service. Ghost of Bataan Speaks Oh God, Where are You?

    How wonderful that you get to do this again and even better that you get to drive WC-52. Can't wait to hear about your trip and see all the photos. Wishing you all the best. Thanks for thinking of us.
