    Yeah. That's my grandpa. He got married just after this.

    I don't know if anyone keeps up with this thread anymore, but I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Sam Eggleston. My grandfather, Ed, served in the 292nd with B Company. He never spoke of the war to anyone, including my father. All I have learned I did through some interviews with people my grandfather had served with, as well as some stories he had written to my grandmother while he was overseas. Ed was from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There, he married Winefred (Morton) and together they had five boys -- David, Paul, Bruce, Mark, and Brad. Three of them still live on the same road that they grew up on, which is the road I grew up on. Ed's time in the military was never revealed to us other than his best friend during his time was Floyd Cook out of Illinois. My dad's middle name is Floyd in his honor. I do have a Co. B panoramic photo that I can see about getting scanned in if there is any interest, as well as another photo with a smaller group of men with some names written on the back. I really appreciate this outstanding thread. Well done, everyone.
