      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.

I added another one today too. For some reason, the St Patty's one disappeared and I fixed that too.

Here's a great pic of my good buddy, a 39th Engineer, David Wagner and his lovely wife Selma.

 

This is a letter from Jerry Bright, who sent me this wonderful photo.

 

 

Dear Marion,

Thank you for the information about the 6th Corps Combat Engineer Reunion this fall.

We had our reunion in DC on Veterans Day weekend. You may recognize our Guests of Honor:

 

Dave & Selma had made complete arrangements to attend our reunion; then, Hurricane Sandy hit the weekend before our reunion. Dave called me Wednesday night and said that all routes to the bus station in Manhattan were closed, that taxi’s could not get gas, and that they may have to cancel. Oh my! I started calling our guys in NYC for possible help. They delayed their trip one day and arrived full of vigor.

 

They were an absolute delight, and we truly enjoyed their company. He warmly talked about you.

 

We are in Tucson this year; so, maybe Dave & Selma can return to DC with y’all.

 

Thanks so much for getting us in touch with these national treasures.
