Marion Parnell

36th and 887th

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :0) I am new here. My name is Marion Parnell. My dad served with the 36th Engineers, 2828 Bn from 24 December 1944 until his return to the States 19 Sept. 1945.

 

He also served with the 887th Avn Airborne Company in North Africa, Sicily and Italy; The 887th participated in the glider portion of the 1st Airborne Task Force, operation Dragoon, landing at Le Muy and La Motte, France, on 15 August 1944. Is there anyone here connected with the 887th?

 

I am currently writing my dad's story from over 300 of his letters to my mom and from his 201 file.

 

glad to be here! marion

Hello Marion! Hmmmmm, feel like I'm talking to myself! :waving: Wait, I do that too, but I digress... :wave2:

 

I'm glad I was able to put you in touch with Captain John Fallon. That is great.

 

Can't wait to see some of the letters. How wonderful you have those in your possession. I am very excited. And, thanks in advance for letting me use some of those on the site and in my documentary. Am thrilled by the prospects.

 

Well here on the forum, I am commonly referred to as M1, as deemed by another faithful member, Mary Ann. She is turn is M2. So it's looks like we will have to dub you M3. And the hits just keep on coming... :P

Hi Marion (M3) and welcome. My interest is Sicily 1943 Operation Husky so I will be interested in what you have to share.
