  8. 667th Engineer Topographic Co

    Lineage And Honors Information Looks like they had a hand in printed many books in Europe including a book I have regarding my dad's unit called, The 540th Regiment in France - George W Marvin, Commanding. I received a copy of this book years ago from the Engineer Office of History. Guess there is also a book on the history of the 667th - but it would be difficult to locate. Bruno Caneva - a history This link shows they were attached to the 244th for a period of time (9th Army) The following link is a book on the 9th Army and again, shows the 667th listed

  12. 19th Cmbt. Eng. Regt.

    Yes, a lot of people mistake my documentary for A Bridge Too Far. www.nobridgetoofar.com Not a problem! My documentary begins in North Africa and that is why the 19th Engineers are featured in part 1, along with other engineering units. VI Corps/5th and 7th Armies were also in Sicily and Italy (ETO/MTO).
  13. 19th Cmbt. Eng. Regt.

    Welcome Dean. Just sent you an email and also added you to the 19th Engineer email group. Hoping that many of them will contact you. Looking forward to hearing all about your father. Please note, I also included the 19th Engineers in the first part of my documentary, No Bridge Too Far. Have you see Ernest Warner's page yet?

I would like to find out more information about his battalion and their activities during the war. I've had a difficult time finding anything on the internet. Do you have any information about them or a link where i might find more information? Thank you so much, Dean Zampelli

    Looking forward to helping you anyway we can.
  21. Hi gals and guys: Just wanted to let you know that I am okay (or on my way!). I was in the hospital for 5 days due to sky-high blood pressure. Feeling better now, as they try to EQ my BP. All my tests turned out negative, so I guess I inherited my mom's genetics. I must admit it was pretty damn scary, so glad I'm on the mend. Gotta make some small lifestyle changes, namely lying low(er) and not rushing around, as I tend to do. You know me, a real-go-getter! So more time to smell the roses (and literally). Ommmmmm!
