I purchased Weton Emery's book C-66 and found dad's name on page 120 via of your member Ken K. . It states that dad was transfered from Co. C to Co. B on Jan. 26, 1945. Dad passed away on April 14th of this year and we would like to learn more about his time in Europe of which he didn't speak much about. We're tryiong to find stories about him or hear from anyone that knew or remembers him. He was loved dearly by all of us and always had flags flying around his house and now they are on his and his wife's Claudia graves. She passed away a few years ago. We also have pictures of him and his buddies, some of the building ruins of the war and also 2 pictures of Ingrad Bergman at a show for the boys overseas that he took. You can see on the back of the pictures that they were developed in Germany.

Some of his friends were: George Jones(S.Sgt), Gene Sabin, Roy Ganies, Shorty Hoch, Lesile Martin, Stanely Potter(doc), Corrigan, Roy Genus(Cpl)with there pictures.

Dad's service # was: 421-22-841 and his S.S. number was: 132-14-5595. Maybe some or all of this info will help someone remember him. Dad just turned 82 on April 6th.

Thanks to all for reading and please contact me if you do know of anything about dad. We all would greatly appreciate it. We may be also able to help someone else learn more about their loved ones who gave so unselfishly of themselves to protect the world.

God Bless and thank you all
