    That's not to say that Dean won't see it in the future, if he's hunting on the web, but... you never know.

    I don't know if you can reach Dean directly, because if you look again, it was a guestbook entry that SonofaMP copied to this post. Dean was never a member of this forum. And unfortunately, SonofaMP passed away a few years ago. Sorry to give you that bad news.

    What the major is up to now

    That is very cool. Hope you will be happy as hell in your new job and of course your new soon-to-be home in Texas. But of course, that just means you are farther away from me, but I will try not to be selfish. ha! Guess these means I will just have to come on down, y'all and visit. Congrats!!!!!

    73rd CA (AA).

    Trying to find anything related to the 73rd... From what I can see, the two are NOT related... I found this on the 73rd Armored Field Artillery of the 9th Division. A father's battle experience unearthed Pictorial review Seventy-third Field Artillery Brigade, 1941 Excerpt from a book on Google

    73rd CA (AA).

    Hi: Below is some information on the unit for you. Sgt Albert Knauss You can check here to see if the Eisenhower Archives has info on this unit Historical Sketches Coast Artillery Regiments 1917-1950 Coast Artillery Journal The United States Coast Artillery Command on Aruba and Curaçao in World War II I am looking into more info, but if there is any connection, it would be divisional, not battalion. Back in a bit...

    Honoring the 291st

    Please send him my regards. I hope you get to meet him and get some pics. Please post if you do. Would love to honor him on our site!

    Honoring the 291st

    That is so cool. I too talked to the Colonel on a couple of occasions. He was such a gracious man. Before he hung up he said that he'd like to honor my father and was proud of his service with the 540th Engineers. I'll never forget that. He also signed books for me, which I proudly display in my library. What an honor to get to know him. Welcome the forum and thanks for all you do for our "boys"!!!

    That's a nice thought. A giant repository of knowledge.

    Well, I know there were always drivers, but not specifically to do what you quoted.

    YEAH! This is very cool. I hope you will be able to borrow and scan too. Another treasure lands on our webpages. Thank you!

    Looking for a place for my Grandpa

    This is beyond words. I am so grateful to you and so happy that you joined the forum and are able to share all the documentation and wonderful photographs. Yes, and I think you are right, his family might have to pick him off the floor. I know I'd need help recovering...

    Your name in lights, er, well, in brick anyway. Looks great, and congrats once again.

    Info on 1017th Treadway Bridge Co

    Totally agree. Other than chatting back and forth, FB is a waste of time. Whereas with forums, everything is organized by subject matter and searching is a breeze. History does not hold up well on Facebook. I even tried having a 6th Corps page once, but it was a real pain and time wasted duplicating subject matter, so I discontinued it a long time ago.

    Ah, I'm sure you can appreciate just how precious these are now. Being able to access these 50, 60, and 70 years later are like finding the crumbs for Hansel and Gretel.
