  1. My dad's Separation Qualification Record states, “Spent approximately 30 months as composite unit commander. Commanded and received the first prisoner or war labor unit in Paris consisting of 250 men. Later increased to a camp of 1500. As unit commander was responsible for administration, training, and discipline of unit. Made decisions reguarding (sp) personel (sp) efficiency, discipline, training, work, and supply. Directed performance of duty and made regular inspections. Prisoners of war worked as largest engineering depot in France.” According to the Internet: "Satory is an area south of Versailles in France. It is mostly known for its military camp..." If anyone has information about this camp, I would really appreciate a reply. Thank you in advance. Also, I have included a portrait of my dad one of the German prisoners painted for him while he was commander of that camp. It is spot on.
  2. Co. E 351st Engineers

    Hi. I am Ben Sanders, son of 1LT Mart B. Sanders, who passed in 1961.​ At eleven, I did not get an opportunity to hear many of my dad's WWII experiences, so I was delighted to discover what I am about to share with you here. ​While looking through the 40th Ed. of The Official Rules of Card Games published in 1941, I found a flier for Co. E 351st Engineers 1943 Christmas dinner held in England. Attached is a file of the typewritten flier, and as soon as I can figure out how to send a small enough file of the actual flier, I will upload it. ​So, if you find your relative listed and have information about this unit, I would love for you to share that information in this forum. And I will share more things as I uncover them. 000-Merry Christmas 1943 England.pdf
