  1. I join you in mourning the passing of Mr. Furtado. I read his journal and like others I have met from the Gretest Generation he was humble and every bit a hero in my eyes. I join the others in asking God to comfort the family in their time of sorrow. Parker
  2. October...we are planning a trip to South Carolina In June. When do you rotate Capt O? Parker

    This is what we had in Saigon before going on to Da Nang. No privacy and it was a fearful sight early in the morning trying to shave in the same little room. Once we got to Da Nang we had wooden ( out houses ). In the 4 and 6 holer design. Splinters were always a problem. Parker

    info on 1058th Engineers - Melvin E Olsen

    After years of searching, even hiring a researcher, and finding so little information I stand amazed at how much has come to light this year for me. The message here is....Don't give up. I am especially glad that sons, daughters, grandsons, son-in-laws etc. are still interested in what The Greatest Generation accomplished. Perhaps they will not be forgotten after all. Thank you.

    info on 1058th Engineers - Melvin E Olsen

    Thank you for this piece of history. It is just another piece or tidbit placing my Uncle (Company A 341st) with the 1058th on the Remagen Bridge. The 341st history only mention was that he was missing and one other had been injured. Thank you for your post. Parker
