Battle of the Bulge Memories - new site
#1

I usually just introduce new links, updates, etc., on the What's New page, but I wanted to give this website a little more exposure...

 

Many of you may be familiar with the CRIBA site, which has been around for several years, and under the fine tutelage of Henri Rogister. Unfortunately he has experienced a certain turn of events, and well, he has removed data including photos, stories, etc., and transferred them to his new site. A real shame this had to occur. After all, he had put many years of service into the old site. Sorry you had to go through this, Henri. Best of luck on your new site.

 

I've included a portion of his letter below, careful to remove any personal references, but you should still get the gist of his words.

 

Dear American friends,

 

...You know probably that I had created since a month (March 17) a new website site called: Battle of the Bulge Memories.

 

The reason of this new website is that I have some problems...

 

You know also that since many years, you sent me or I ask you the authorization to publish many stories published in our own newsletter. With these problems... all stories, pictures and information that I had posted had been transferred from CRIBA's website to my new website...I was the webmaster and that all these stories were my research's job during many years and since the first day (February 15, 1998).

 

...I hope to be able to work again with all of you in order to perpetuate the memory of all these Americans soldiers who were involved in the Bulge...

 

Best Regards at all of you

Your Belgian friends since many years

 

Henri Rogister, Webmaster

Sad indeed, but it often happens.

Luckily he transferred and preserved all the interesting information for the generations to come.
