      The Forum is back!!!!   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 if you hit the HOME button, it takes you to a "screwy" page. What's up with that??? And I'm also aware that you cannot pull up the emoticons, etc. Working away to try and get these bugs, sorted out!

  1. Looks cool! I wonder how he will be portrayed. The trailer doesn't really give you a solid idea. So Brian Cox will now have played: Leon Trotsky Hermann Göring Winston Churchill Oh, and Dr. Hannibal Lecktor!!
  2. YEAH!!! So glad the forum is back!!! Thank you for all of your hard work (and $$$) Marion!!! I was really missing it (after 10 years of being here almost daily!!)

      Oh I know the feeling. I was lost in limbo. Still need a bit of tweaking, but we are almost there 100 percent. I still can't get into the admin section, but working on it. Seems to be a permissions problem. Arrggh!!

  3. Wow. I actually wouldn't have thought he was still with us. I recognized the name as soon as I saw it. With the Marines at Tarawa is a very interesting (and even Academy Award Winning as was mentioned above) documentary. I remembered hearing about the fact that he was able to catch both combatants in a single frame. This just doesn't happen in genuine combat footage. And it is in color, too! Farewell, sir! Thank you for all you've done!
  4. Farewell, sir! Thank you for what you have done.
  5. Welcome aboard, Matthieu. We are glad to have you here. My grandfather was with the 540th Combat Engineers which landed in that area during Operation Dragoon.
  6. Oh, no! I pray he feels better soon. What a great gentlemen.
  7. What a strange story! I would be very upset if I were the family of the WWII Vet!
  8. Very interesting. What a great thing these guys did for their country and (perhaps more importantly) for their race. Talk about breaking ceilings. Rest in peace, sir!
  9. Wow! How about that! What are the odds there! Once again, Marion, you are putting the right people in touch with each other!!
  10. I saw this today in Stars and Stripes. It is a new memorial to the 249th Engineer Battalion for erecting a pontoon bridge of the Rhine for Gen Patton's 3rd Army to cross. It was dedicated with great fanfare. I'm glad to see that.
  11. Never heard of fake bridges! Makes sense, though.
