The interviews from the 36th Engineer Reunion (2008), are now available on the main site. Several of the men participated and we (Jim Miller and I) are pleased to share these with you.

 

Be prepared to laugh and cry as you watch events unfold. There are a few hours of material, and it's worth the watch if you have the time. Of course these are a MUST-SEE for anyone who had a loved one in the 36th Engineers, or if you are a member of that unit, yourself.

 


Tony Stefanelli and Carl Furtado. I chose to interview them together, because they have been CLOSE friends since the war. In fact they still talk to each other every day, and golf and vacation together. Quite a few of the engineers got a real kick out of listening to them.

This year the interviews will be conducted digitally, therefore the quality will be much better. We also plan on using a backdrop and finding a quieter room to film the men.

 


This was our first time, so not a lot of thought was put into the output. However, we couldn't be more pleased with the content.

 


Many thanks to "the boys" who took part in this. We are forever indebted to you.

Bob Nokes sent me a note yesterday, which I had to share with all of you. This is precious. Bob is the son of Tom Nokes.

 

Yes. We all watched it together.

 


Dad's reaction? "I wish I'd pushed my hat back a bit. And we all should have talked more about the war."


I thought it was great stuff!
