Broggini 330-239-1014 4860 State Rd Medina OH 44256-8428 As always, I strongly suggest everyone look at the research links I provide: http://www.6thcorpscombatengineers.com/eng...hp?showtopic=23 The Army Corps of Engineers Office of History, is a great place to start!

    The "c" stands for combat and the B.N. stands for battalion! :-)
  4. 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

    Hi,

    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?

    87th Inf Div in Walsheim

    Hello, I am a private person from Walsheim saargebiet Germany, looking for our club images and movie recordings from entering the American armed forces in Walsheim 87. Infant.Div. ; December 1944 can you help me? Viele Grüße Peter Leiner ============ I wrote back saying this might be difficult and we talked back and forth a few times. He later wrote: Hello Marion, I found out that there is footage of the "Operation Nordwind" from the time Dec.1944-March 1945 from the region Nord-Elsass (lorraine), right next to my place Walsheim. Could you please inquire whether there is some material for this operation of Walsheim? Many Thanks. Peter I told him to contact the association to see if they could assist. http://87thinfantrydivision.com/

    Welcome to our forum. Wonderful to see yet another person identified in this photo.
  12. One of our very own, Brian Guy - 246 Field Company Royal Engineers, has passed. He not only took part in our forum, beginning in 2004, but shared his story on our main site. Now you've joined a large group of sappers in the sky! Farewell my English friend. M1

    1264th Combat Engineers route through Europe

    Ah, I went back through my email and discovered that I did respond to him and put him in touch with the 1264th email group. Hope some of them were able to contact him and give him some info.

    I am so sorry I missed your post, regardless of how diligent I try to be. Thank you Major Todd for pointing this out. How remiss of me! Let me see what I can discover for you. Thank you for your patience.

    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.

    149th Combat Engineers

    Subject: 149 combat engineers, company b I wonder if you can direct me to a site where I can learn about the group my uncle served in in Europe during World War II...I can't seem to locate anything. Thanks a lot.

    Camp Butner NC engineer units. Trying to research

    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...
