Hey Peter, ya know i think thomas came from new rochelle but ended up in rome, and daniel could have been a nephew, but i swear he was a son. as i said the day thomas left the service, was the same day daniel enlisted, it was may 24th, i remember it because that's my birthday, it seemed odd at first,(not the birthday thing) but the fact that one couldn't serve till the other signed out. kind of a "saving private ryan" clause. so, i must know, what is your interest in "FLANDREAU" are you related? if you would rather answer on my hotmail address go ahead.
