|gini||I must admit that I found this site by mistake but this is a great site!!! I wish more people will invest their time to build sites like this one. Thank you|
|william barone||I just watched the movie band of brothers for the 5th time. It still and will always bring me such saddness of the good men we lost and such pride to all men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom. |
If Dick Winters or any of the members of the 101st especially easy co. are still left I would love to have the privalede to write to you.
God Bless you all respectfully your William Barone
|Robert||I just wanted to say hello. I wish you much success with this website.|
|Guest||I have now listened to your music and the film of Night and Fog three times and each time I listen and watch it is more emotional than the time before. |
I think you capture the horrific atmosphere portrayed in the documentary brilliantly.
Your music exactly matches the imagery of the film and transmits the ghastly inhumanity of the camps in WW2.
|Marie Karen||I have just joined this interesting and informative wesite. |
As an organiser of a 60th anniversary event myself I appreciate all the hard work people put in to websites and contacting members etc.
Our event is in 6 days and so is our wedding, so I am extremely busy to say the least! Our event is being held for the veterans and over the past 14 months I have met some wonderful people, veterans, re-enactors, organisers etc.
I hope to get to know some of you from this site and would like to say to Fred, you are a truly amazing person - keep up the good work and I hope to pop in often to this site.
All the best Marie-Karen
|Annie Phillips||I enjoyed the lesson of history. |
It is good to keep to keep these memories alive.
I had a brother in the 44 div. in that area. Thank You.
|Iris van Eck||I did not think I would have the time to write a recommendation for Fred this week because I have my recital coming up on Sunday Dec 4... However I started to look at one of the videos that he put music on... and it was AMAZING... |
Previously I watched a war video with his music ... and it was extremely compelling.. but never in the way...
The video I watched right now about aging disease (Cockayne disease) was very powerful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOVWAODzJkY (you need to be able to speak/understand Dutch for it though) You almost don't notice the music but it's there and enhances the story. I watched Night and Fog (nuit et brouillard) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXWlIgWEPmI a while ago and the music is extremely compelling... I cried. I recommend Fred for any projects like that!

|Philip Smart||I am researching the WWII History of my father in law who was a radar operator on a C-47. He was in the 49th Troop Carrier Squadron. |
On D-Day he flew with Captain Jack Cardwell. His name was Sgt. Paul Decker. Mission Boston, Serial #22, #2.
The lead paratrooper on the plane was 1st Lt. Napierkowski..
I am also searching for a copy of the history of the 49th Troop Carrier Squadron.
I have studied the book Pulse and Repulse (Troop Carrier & Airborne Teams in Europe during WWII) by H. Rex Shama. Mr. Shama was a glider pilot in the 49th.
|john redondo||I am looking for information regarding the 737th Amphibious Assault Task Force information. |
My late Grandfather served in the last 2 campaigns headed by General Patton. Any information would be much appreciated.
|Lynda Tanner||I am looking for anyone from the First Army 215th Signal Corps that landed on D-Day with my step-father Russell Reininger. |
He is 90 yrs. old now and would love to hear from anyone left that he served with. Thank you
all for your service. Lynda Tanner [email protected]
|Guest||Hoor zojuist de door jouw geschreven muziek en ik moet wederom zeggen: ik ben enorm onder de indruk!!! |
Prachtig geschreven, ontroerend en aangrijpend, ik kan het niet anders zeggen.
Muziek die enorm raakt, van internationale klasse! Hopelijk schrijf je nog heel veel van dit soort werken.
|Guest||Honour to those who fought and died for our freedom across the world.|
|Guest||Hierbij wil ik je complimenteren, want ik denk dat je hiermee wel wat heb neergezet. |
Inderdaad ken ik de moeilijkheidsgraad, als je rechtstreeks op beelden gaat componeren. Dit is meestal een tijdrovend onderdeel, gezien het nogal wat aanpassingen behoeft. (synchronisatie, tijdsduur, melodie etc.)
Zoals ik het nu voor de 2e keer beluister, maar dan zonder beeld (wat ik vaak doe) merk ik dat ik de beelden daarbij kan plaatsen. Dan kun je wel zeggen, dat het goed gedaan is. Wat ik overigens erg goed vind, is de overgang naar het gedeelte waar de militairen door de straten marcheren.

|Guest||Hi, Fred! Wow, I am truly impressed with your music! It's absolutely beautiful. |
I sure do wish we didn't live so far apart from each other -- I would certainly love the opportunity to work with you.
It's always been one of my dreams to sing with an orchestra! I especially love your jazz arrangement of You'd Be So Nice to Come Home to.
Market Garden is very moving, indeed. I'm not closing the book on our possible collaboration in the near future ...

|Yrcimim||Hi Fred! Je hebt een fantastische multimedia presentatie gemaakt voor de opening van onze turnhal. |
Het is inmiddels al enige tijd geleden, maar het gaf de openingsceremonie precies het smoel waar we naar zochten. De presentatie is ook op onze website gezet: http://www.topturnen.nl => Reportages.
Nog heel hartelijk dank voor je moeite en snelle respons op onze vraag. Heel veel creatief succes gewenst verder.
Namens TON, Martijn Loots.
