Inspired by an email.... Adding to photo gallery
#1

I received a letter from Shawn Fox, whose grandfather was in the 97th Infantry Division. He stated how much he enjoyed reading Ray Repasky's Memoirs page (also from the 97th) and asked about a CD of photos. Well, lo and behold, I had completely forgotten about those photos and sure enough, upon a search this morning, I re-discovered them.

 

I had always planned on starting another section for all the other WWII vets, and today is as good a day than any, so....thanks for the inspiration Shawn. I will be uploading all the other photos over the next few days and weeks!

 

This means I will include such men as James Hennessey, Rocky Riojas and all the other great WWII veterans. They will now be side-by-side within their own section of the Engineer's Photo Gallery. Ray is the first today.

Great job, it looks awesome!

 

[i just noticed this is my 1000th post! Somehow I skipped the rank of Brigadier General and went straight to Major General. Good deal!]

Thank you Todd and thank you Jim. It's my pleasure. It's not always an easy job, but it's always a worthwhile, rewarding job.

 

On a related note...

 

I've known for years I need another scanner in order to scan legal-sized documents, etc. My current Epson flatbed scanner is a real workhorse and has been my undying friend for the last several years, but while it does a great job with pages from a hardback, or simply when I need a few pages copied, it doesn't have the capacity for 8 X 14 sheets. It's also a real bite when I have to scan (let's say 100 pages) of an historical document, for then I have to open the scanner, place the sheet, scan, remove the sheet, place the next sheet,scan...

 

As you can imagine, it's often a long, tedious process, and therefore many things I'd like to upload to our site, go undone.

 

So this week I am going to begin searching for a second scanner which allows me to copy larger documents and also has a multiple-feed feature. Imagine how much easier my life could be if I could simply load 50 pages and walk away. It's time to open the wallet and pay for something to make my life a lot easier.
