The D day buzz

We all saw on tv the D Day buzz...more special this year because of the 75th anniversary. Old Donald bone spurs made a speech. Another ancient paratrooper does a tandem jump. The queen of England made a speech and told how she was doing war work like a British Rosie the Riveter. The President of Fra...

When going to the beach this Memorial day...beware

If you are in the Florida panhandle you better be careful going to the beach for a little sun and sand and a dip into the Gulf of Mexico. That former governor of Arkansas and conservative FOX pundent and father of Donald Trumps mouthpiece will have you arrested if you are on the beach in front of hi...

Re: First Significant Contact May 1968

Welcome to the forums Hank. Looks like Don Hanna and George Schroeder were both victims of the explosive device. Hanna died upon being injured and Schroeder lingered after being dusted off until May 16. Rabuer was a medic who was shot and killed while attempting to tend to Schroeder and or Hanna. I ...

Re: There was server failure recently

The site problem continues. The fix is beyond my ability to correct. The site may still be fixed in the coming months so that you don't see those annoying error messages and the much missed by me attachment upload features may be added back.

Three additions to the KIA list now added

Jerry White, after going through his records noted three names that I felt should be added to our Wall page. The three had served in the 6th of the 31st but were reassigned to different 9th Division units as well as one man who died in a subsequent Division assignment. The three names are listed at ...

His book is on Barnes & Noble too. Same $4.99. No reviews at the moment. It's listed as fiction the same way as the publisher site. The Barnes & Noble blurb on what it's about doesn't mention anything about Miyares war history or war stories. Looking at the cover it looks like the whole book...

I remember two FO team guys that did what I did that died there and a couple others that were wounded, one seriously..... a...

It landed in the Siberian AO from the China side on August 21, 1918. It's first casualty was eight days later. Th...
