Doug,

 

I will ask my dad if anyone in those pictures are your Uncle Art, in the meantime I'm still searching for more pictures.

Gad, I have been off line for what I thought was only a few days, but obviously it was longer.

 

This is such an amazing story!!! Marion, it is really incredible the miracles that you have produced!

 

This is a WOW!

It all warms my heart. Even when I begin to feel frustrated at times, things like this make it all worth while.

I'm sorry that I haven't written sooner, but dad's been under the weather lately and not really too talkative. I will post more info as he recovers.

Hi, Tony!

 

I'm sorry to hear your dad is feeling ill- send him my best wishes for a speedy recovery!

 

If you or your dad are interested in seeing them, my great aunt (Art's niece) has the original papers and letters Art's chain-of-command sent back after his death in Germany, and she offered a copy to me. I don't know if they'd be of any interest to your dad, but let me know if so, and I can forward copies to you as soon as I get them!

 

All the best to your dad!!

 

Kind regards,

Doug

Hello Doug,

 

I'm sure my dad would really like to see the letters. He spoke so highly of Art that I know he would like see them.

Dad's doing a little better. He's still weak but seems to be on the road to recovery.

 

Thanks for kind thoughts,

 

Tony

Good morning, Tony,

 

I received Art's documents in the mail a couple days ago and digitized them for upload. I couldn't figure out how to embed an image into the forum, so I uploaded them to flickr- they can be viewed at the album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/124725250@N02/sets/72157644747236831/. There are condolence letters from Art's CO, the chaplain, and the war department, plus Art's prayer card from his funeral. These are courtesy of my great grand-aunt (Art's sister) and grand-aunt (Art's niece).

 

Again, wish your dad my best!

 

Kind regards,

 

Doug
