      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.

  1. Randy, Thank you so very much. I have several pictures of dad during WWII I will post soon. Oh how I wish I had taken the time to write down all the information about the crossing and his time in Europe. Dad was older than most of his fellow troops. I remember him talking about guarding the prisoners after the war. I believe I was almost 2 years old when I first saw dad. Those men should never be forgotten, they made this country great! I will be in touch and thanks again!
  2. My name is Tom Bryant, my father Pvt John Franklin Brant was in the 258th Combat Engineers during WWII. The unit trained in Hattiesburg, MS before going to Europe. I have a picture of the outfit. I remember dad talking about the day they crossed the Rhine but I cannot remember where he crossed. I am looking for anyone that might have information on that. My dad was born in 1912 and passed away five years ago. If anyone has any suggestions how I can get more information on my dad or his outfit crossing the Rhine I would really appreciate that.
