  1. Awesome pictures. My dad was with the 8th Air Force in WW2 and he had some really great stories to tell. I am a former Marine ( Viet Nam). Would like to thank all vets for serving.

  2. Hi. Do you have any images of “The push” before The Battle of the Bulge WWII? OR/AND I company commanded by Radzwich? Looking for pictures overall of 101st Army Yankee Division, 26th Div., Company I in the Pacific

  3. Remarkable photos. My maternal grandfather was in company C of 777th Tank Battalion. I see you have the roster of the 272d attached to 69th ID. Wondering if you have roster of men in company c, 777th?

  4. impressed!!!, my dad was a sargeant in the 45th division (180th infantry f company ) eager for any info!! . or pen pal with knowledge

  5. Good photos, my dad was on 7th wave on D day at Normandy / Omaha beach head. Do not have a great deal of information on his unit or company other than I believe 3rd Army artillery. He was not one to talk of the war or battles in France and Germany. Do you have any suggestions as to how to go about finding more details of his landing and advance into that part of the E.T.
    Thank You,
    Bill Jackson

    • Bill,
      Researching Army is a bit more difficult than Navy and USMC but I find good luck with tracking down army serial numbers (ASN) and running the info through fold3.com. I don’t mind giving it a try if you want to share his name and some basic facts with me.

  6. Brennan,
    I do not mind sharing information if what you need is something I can provide. My Dad passed away 1-8-13 and left much of his military tailings with another family member but I will do my best to get needed data. What do you need? His name: Clifford S. Jackson, “Dog Tag” no. is 31051282 T41-42 0.
    There is also an address of his mother on tag: Susannah Jackson, 51 Wilson St., Prov. R.I.
    Bill
