Fantastic! Look at all these great images from the war. Loved your, "...believe it or not Packmule training!!". Yes, it does seem a bit far-fetched doesn't it, but it did occur!

I love these personal pictures. You end up seeing so many of the same pictures from World War II even though there must be thousands upon thousands. Personal photos, however, are always new.

Sorry, was away for eight or nine days...

 

I have downloaded all the photos you sent and will convert to PDF, however, the names associated with the files are not sequential, so I have no idea on how to put them back together. For instance, one is named scan 8, another is named Sugar.... and the rest are named combat, followed by a number. However, it gets confusing, for one is named combat 000, combat 00, etc. I really need your help with this. Sigh!

I am trying to go back to the original emails you sent (still have them) and will try and match them up. I will let you know.

Okay I think I got it, but one page I wasn't sure where to put it. Look at this and let me know where the last page should go.

Hi: I still have to move that one page within the pdf. Promise I will get to it.

 

Oh, saw you thank you, but it was posted under my documentary section "my published articles", so I am moving your quote here and deleting the post.

 

 

Thank you for posting my dads diary. I hope people enjoy it and understand a little more what vets went through during the war. Tom Caulkins

 

You are very welcome.
