Hi! My grandfather, Henry Ulissi, served in 714th during WWII. He passed away when I was young and I'd love to learn more about him and the men he served with. Anyone out there willing to share some stories?

My email is hantoinetti@ah-ha-marketing.com. Please reach out if have any information. Thank you all for your service!

Heather

there is a good book called "crossing the Zorn" that talks about a lot of what the 714th went through in January 1945. You should try to attend the reunion at the museum in Abilene TX this coming summer you will hear 4 days worth of stories. You can buy the book thru the museum and get a discount if you sign up for a membership as a museum sponsor. There is also a new book out about "The Last battle" being made into a movie this year. you can buy that thru the museum as well. We are setting up an online store in the near future. you can call or email them if you would like to buy books or join museum and or the association.
