Here is something rather curious.This posting appeared on the WW2 Veteran's Forum on Wednesday:
Greetings! My name is Alison Derr. I am a high school senior at Wilson High School in Reading, PA. My advanced placement United States history class is currently conducting a project in which the entire class is trying to find as much information as we possibly can on a WWII soldier who went MIA on February 10, 1945. Private Fredrick WJ Goempel was his name. PVT Goempel was a member of the 2nd platoon, company F, 2nd battalion, 11th Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division, 3rd US Army. If any of you ever knew PVT. Goempel, serving with him, as a part of his battalion, company, platoon, regiment, etc., my classmates and I would greatly appreciate any info you could give us! Thanks! Sincerely, Alison Derr
The poster listed her email address, but I will not repost it here.Thought you might find this interesting to say the least.
