      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!

      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

  1. Vet doing research

    I'm Matt, combats engineer vet from 1996-2002, doing research on my grandfather who I never knew but have tons of photos, some not labeled, from the ETO. He was a comms T4 in the 33rd reconnaissance squadron, 20th armored division, 3rd Army. It has proved quite a Challenge to ID some of these places, at the time my grandad was in Europe, February thru July 1945, his unit was splintered and pieces attached to other units, so it can be hard to know where he went based on official narratives. Mom not here to crowdsource or just post and hope others do the work, but I am relatively new at this sort of research. Any tips would be appreciated. Included is a photo of my grandfather, Gordon Smith Essayons!
