      Upgrade July 26,2017   07/27/17

      We had an upgrade to the system this morning and I had to temporarily disable the theme/colors/look-feel of the forum. The forum was acting strangely and was moving along at a snails pace, so had to perform some tests. After I disabled all the customizations, things improved immensely, so... I am hoping to add our colors back, but till then...bear with me. Thanks!

  1. 1260th Engineers - My Father-in-law's unit

    Looks like the photos are being accepted. Here is an example - my father in law took many photos while he was serving in WWII and he was very good at documenting who was in the photos and where they were taken.
  2. I had read about this in the news. Another American hero lost. Rest in peace and thank you for your service.
  3. Farewell Lt. Gen Harold G. "Hal" Moore

    Rest in Peace and thank you for your service to our country.
  4. 1260th Engineers - My Father-in-law's unit

    I tried to contact the Mr. Sherman Harris that is listed. Emails come back as undeliverable. I sent an email to the NARA in College Park and am waiting to hear from them to see if they can help. Marion - do you have a way for me to contact the person, Rick, who has the book on this unit? I would love to see if I can get a copy of the records. I think that would answer all of my questions.
  5. 1260th Engineers - My Father-in-law's unit

    I have tried posting the photos numerous times on two different computers and they wont come through. I even sized them to less than the 2MB restriction so I don't know why they wont upload. I have many photos so I will try some more later. Thank you for your posts.
  6. 1260th Engineers - My Father-in-law's unit

    I was going to upload a couple of photos but apparently can't. I have some photos - one of a full company and then some of smaller units and platoons. He put every single person's name on the back of each photo.
  7. My father-in-law is deceased and while alive did not talk much of his time served during WWII. I have been trying to piece together his life while in the Army. I do know that they were demolition specialist and he said their focus was on blowing up bridges. His name was Steve Szalko Jr. He entered service at Ft. Sheridan on March 28, 1944 and was honorably discharged at Ft. Sheridan on June 11, 1946. He was a demolition specialist and did serve in the European Theater. He was with the 1260th Engineers, Company B, Platoon 2. I do have his Discharge papers and many of the photos that he took while serving. On some of the unit photos he has complete lists of those that are in the photo with him. I was hoping to find a place to share them with the families of those who had served with him but don't know if there are any web sites out there specific to the unit. My main interest right now is learning the history of his unit - dates and route traveled and what they did along the way. If anyone could help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.
