Watson;; looking at your pic. I think I remember you. So damn long ago

the mind just doesn't function to good. But you do remember Ken Ryan,

Sgt. Brewer. Was it Lt. Anderson that was killed by a mortar round that

hit near his foxhole? There is a pic. above ofa fellow that lost an eye

at the Rapido river.Wonder what Company he was in. Sez he was in the

34th. I remember the combat engineers probing for mines there.

Haven't e/mailed you in a while, all OK? I have been staying close inside

since the wife passed away, it now has been a little over 2 years.

Ketch me later dude !!! Rocky ---- :readingpaper:

John Bowen just emailed his sentiments:

 

"The caption of this photo should be: Let Sleeping Dogs (dogfaces) lie."

 

Bowen, that was a good one! :frown:

Here's the latest from our fellow board member and WWII veteran, Jim Davis. There is also an article to read regarding this trip to Europe.

 

===========

 

Thanks for the kind words. A lot of people thought it insane to let an 85 year old wander around Europe by himself. But I did it and made it.

 

Here is a look and some pictures.

 

Aloha,

Jim

Hello Jim; Very nice article above. You was in the sameplace I was only different

localities and DIFFERENT JOBs. The cause was the same. I left Italy Sept.'45

on points. I guess you have read, I was in the 1st Bn. 135th Inf Regt. 34th div.

We both,(you and I}, had jobs to do and we did them well. Rocky

a very nice welcome. One had enough strengh to put

his arm on my shoulder. rocky--

"Mr. Squirrel",

 

You ARE a handsome devil. We should just put you on TV selling anti-aging products and the money would start rollin' in!

 

Mr. Davis is another one. Yikes! I get nervous now if I have to drive into Boston by myself, I can't imagine traveling around Europe at 85.

Another photo of Jim Davis from Hawaii:

 

===========

"Private Chester Owens, an Engineer soldier/fire fighter and member of the 1219th US Army Engineer Fire Fighting Platoon on December 24, Christmas Eve, 1944 on his way to a fire in Malmedy, Belgium was killed by what is believed to be enemy action. He rests with 7991 other US military in the beautiful US Military Cemetery at Henri-Chapelle, Belgium. I was a member of the 1204th US Army Engineer Fire Fighting Platoon. It was a privilege and an honor to be able to visit my Brother to pay my respects and offer my salute."

 

Jim Davis

 

OK?

Aloha,

Jim
