Jack Frank 1142nd Combat Engineer Group
#1

The upcoming Memorial Day weekend I will be escorting Mr. Jack Frank. Jack served in the 1142nd CEG and was one of the men who also constructed the entrance roadd to the American cemetery in Margraten, The Netherlands. We will visit a school so he can talk to the kids, we will visit the ceremonies in Margraten and Henri-Chapelle, he will meet up with the guy who adopts the grave of one of his friends and of course we will visit the spot in Maastricht where they put up some pontoon bridges.


If there is anybody wo has some questions, please let me know so I can ask them.


Best wishes,


Frank

I will ask him, I am surprised in what great physical and mental condition he still is at age 93. I will post some pictures on Facebook later on.
