I appreciate your input Bob. Understand that most of what I know is based on family stories and some of the things told to me are probably inaccurate due to the retelling from one person to another and due to the passage of time. My father didn't talk about his experiences in the war much and so whenever he did, I had to jot down his recollections on whatever paper I could find and then hope to compile them into some understandable form later. In addition to any historical information, I was mostly hoping to find any of his army buddies who may still be alive. I'll keep trying. Thanks again.
