Phony paratrooper to be feted by French
#6

Well spoken my European friend. Some people are afraid to say what you did. Thanks for having the guts to do so.

 

:armata_PDT_37:

 

You probably would have been banned from some AIRBORNE forums. :frown:

 

And that's exactly why we have a forum like ours. We root for all, and we root for the "little guys" who never get mentioned, but whose scope, depth (sounds like a sub forum :frown: ) and contributions to the war were equal in value.

 

Hey while we're on a SOAPBOX, it's the reason I rarely go to CERTAIN forums anymore, for they treated me like the little kid down the road with snot on his face, who nobody wants to play with. I would excitedly deliver news about my dad, etc., and no one would ever respond. And dammit, another person would write almost exactly the same thing, and the post would go on for two weeks. Don't tell me I wasn't shunned. You wanna know why? It's because my daddy and his boys weren't FAMOUS!

 

I told a few people one time, if my documentary ever aired, or someone made a movie about the VI Corps Engineers, then the people who continued to ignore me would suddenly come out of the woodwork and want to to know the daughter of WALTER (MONDAY) PONIEDZIALEK! Everyone here knows that to be gospel. Sad but true...

 

Okay, Marion will now step down and sit at Erwin's side. :direct: Next!! :1028:

Marion J Chard
Proud Daughter of Walter (Monday) Poniedzialek
540th Engineer Combat Regiment, 2833rd Bn, H&S Co, 4th Platoon
