  1. Hi ya' Marion, I dropped you an email the other night about the new 295th audiobook just released. I hope you don't mind me posting a short blurb and link to Amazon where folks can hear a sample of audio and purchase. The untold WWII story of another band of brothers who also trained at the infamous Camp Toccoa. Marv Allen's voice is a time machine that puts you right alongside these forgotten heroes as they travel from the United States to Europe doing their part in the battle against tyranny. A light and often humorous account by S/SGT Thomas E. Coon finally made known. Here Audio Sample: https://www.amazon.com/History-295th-Ordinance-H-M-Company/dp/B072ML24G5/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1497704456&sr=8-3&keywords=295th

  3. Finally registered today. Just wanted to post a message introducing myself. My name is Michael (Mike) Rockett. I'm the grandson of J.T. Rockett who served in WWII with the 295th Ordnance Heavy Maintenance Company (HM). Great site and forum, Marion! Happy to be a member of VI Corps! Mike Rockett
  4. Thanks Rocky. Well, they were mostly Southern boys so they were pretty big! I'm fortunate enough to have spoken with a few of them and they definitely have BIG hearts! They all remind of Desmond Doss in many ways. Well, I don't even think any of them fired a gun in combat! lol
