      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.

Received this from my a friend who is a researcher.

 

 

Dear Mrs. Chard,
I hope this e-mail finds you well & enjoying a warm summer season. My e-mail to you is in regard to the 1st Engineer Special Brigade.
Have you any knowledge of a 1st Engineer Special Brigade Veterans Association? I need to contact someone with FACTS as per the history of the 1st Engineer Special Brigade.
Thank you for your time.
Respectfully,

My father was Unit Historian of the 1st Engineer Special Brigade Association from around 1978 until he passed away in 2002. About 2005, I decided to try to determine if the Association still existed; I looked up all the officers; they had all passed away, or letters to them were returned to sender. I did receive a notice of a 2003 Reunion (in St Paul, as I recall). These talks about more recent ones:

that I was unaware of, but have no contacts listed. So, I have to conclude there is no group left, although you can call someone at the Engineer Museum at Fort Leonard Wood to see if they know.

If you are still registered and have any specific questions, please post them and I'll try to answer them. I have unit rosters and some other information on casualties from my father, as well as unit history information. Thank you!
