Joining the Anzio Beachhead Veterans
#1

My dear friend David Wagner of the 39th Combat Engineers, sent me a copy of the latest newsletter from the Anzio Beachhead Vets. After consideration, they are now granting membership to the sons and daughters of those who fought in the Anzio Campaign. I have decided to apply for yearly membership.

 

Many of my (our) vet friends belong and it's neat to see their names as I read through the newsletter. I'll be proud to have my name alongside theirs. :pdt20:

Yeah, then I will sitting next to esteemed company. B) Glad you joined. Hope you and I can get others to join too. It's never too late.

 

Would love to see the pics. Ya, if you can copy them for me, it would be just great. I got some photos yesterday from a member of the 36th Combat Engineers and they are fantastic. I hope to have them uploaded to the site this week and will share them with all.

Then for a while we forgot there was a war on. Capish!! Rocky.

Here is a poem sent to me from Natl. Hq. 34th I.D. Assn..

 

Beneath white crosses row on row

Our buddies lie at Anzio.

Do we remember, yes, we nod,

Some nameless crosses, known but to GOD.

 

On Anzio Beach beneath the German guns,

Our lines held firm, we did no run.

Yet those who paidfull price that day,

Lie beneath white crosses and Anzio Clay.

 

While we have Memorial today

May they sleep in peace beneath Anzio's clay.

Do we remember,yes, we nod.

They are lying there beneath Anzio's sod.

 

Some still lie ther this very day,

In a foreign land so far away.

 

 

May they rest well in the hands of GOD,

Beneath the white crosses and the Anzio sod.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They did their job aswell they tried,

 

They met their fate and there they died.

We must not forget them where they lie,

And really couldn't if we try.

 

Like Flanders field in World War one,

The crosses gleamm in the mid-day sun

The poppies grow in the same old way,

Near all white crosses on the ANZIO CLAY...

BY ORIN GENTRY---RED BULL SOLDIER..

What a touching, beautiful poem. Hard not to get a bit choked up when reading it.

 

Got your letter regarding your reunion. I know you will do a bang-up job as acting president of the Red Bulls. You will do them proud.

 

I am sorry to hear oF Bill's illness. God bless him and I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers. -o-
