      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.

Camp Satory – POW Camp for German soldiers

Recommended Posts

My dad's Separation Qualification Record states, “Spent approximately 30 months as composite unit commander. Commanded and received the first prisoner or war labor unit in Paris consisting of 250 men. Later increased to a camp of 1500. As unit commander was responsible for administration, training, and discipline of unit. Made decisions reguarding (sp) personel (sp) efficiency, discipline, training, work, and supply. Directed performance of duty and made regular inspections. Prisoners of war worked as largest engineering depot in France.”

According to the Internet: "Satory is an area south of Versailles in France. It is mostly known for its military camp..."

If anyone has information about this camp, I would really appreciate a reply. Thank you in advance.

Also, I have included a portrait of my dad one of the German prisoners painted for him while he was commander of that camp. It is spot on.Painting-Oil-POW.thumb.JPG.11595259e063f5ed97c21a9fee6c842e.JPG
