      The Forum is back - updates on progress!   05/11/17

      Oh my gosh, can't tell you what a relief it is to have our forum back. I am simply beside myself with joy! Many of you know, but just as many do not, that I experienced a severe server crash, two weeks ago today. I therefore "temporarily lost" ALL my websites, including the VI Corps main site, this forum, No Bridge Too Far, the VI Corps Jukebox and more than a dozen client sites... Without going into all the gory details, I had to purchase a new server, then start all over from scratch. I did have backups of all the sites, but it's been a real ordeal setting up the server, then one by one, reinstalling each site. I'm almost there, but still have a ways to go, but just got the forum back online, on May 11, 2017 at 12:22. I'm hoping to have the VI Corps main site back by the weekend.  And yes, I am aware of several minor problems, including the fact that many images are currently missing. I need to access the old server again, and copy the uploads folder to our new server. Evidently (for some reason), many of the photos/doc did not transfer. I am working on this, so thank you for your patience.

    Hello Walt's Daughter,
    My Uncle Tony served in both the 113th and 344tth.  Do you know if there are any living members of either of these two units?  
    Happy to share his album with the community.

    Hello All!  Thank you for approving my request. I am currently researching information on my father, PFC Robert Sandor who was in the 1280th Engineer Combat Battalion - Company C. My father met my mother in Linz, Austria, after World War II. They were married in the Dom in Linz on May 8, 1948. Four months before my mother passed away, I found her private journal she wrote when she was 13 years old while she was in the League of German Girls - specifically, Country Service Year Camp (Landjahr Lager).  I wrote her biography "Through Innocent Eyes - The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth."  I attend the WWII re-enactments in Florida and the D-Day Conneaut, Ohio event in August. So many readers are asking me to write a historical/fictional/love story about my dad's service in WWII and how he met my mom in Europe.  Here is a picture of my mom, Gertrude and my dad, Robert, after WWII in Austria.

    Hi Marion, 
    I am attaching the information about my dad Ervin J. Lochowicz. There is one PDF file titled John Howes information. Mr. Howe was also in the1289th. He wrote that the 1289th was assigned to the 15th Army and 23rd Corp. 
    Also I am attaching some information on my uncle Pfc. Eugene E. Lochowicz. Ken
