I am amazed at your work for this History project. I am currently working of the story of a Canadian Field Artillery Regiment and like to connect with you to share information.

What is the best way to reach you - Are these message private or public ? Is your location in Holland ?

Thanks, Fred. Really appreciate your interest and efforts. My mother was romantically involved with one of the crew, XX. She died recently, but I was able to tell her that I had been able to obtain the details of how he had died. How much of it she knew already I do not know, but I wanted to know, for sure, and she was very grateful for what I had discovered.

I give thanks to God, as a living survivor of Omaha Beach, Medical Detachment, 16th. Infantry, 1st Infantry Division, I am humbled by the tremendous sacrifices and service by all who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day.

Night and Fog is a film I have seen more than once over the decades. I think it is the most powerful visual document of WWII.
Your music is intensely powerful, sorrowful and beautiful all at the same time. It seamlessly balances and complements the visual images, without it many of them would be unbearable to watch.

Hi Fred,

Thank you very much!

I have been in contact with many of the family members from the crash and have given them your website address so they can read the story of what happened to their family member. I am sure they are all very appreciative of your site and hard work at maintaining it.

Thanks again,

Fred, the story on your web site looks fantastic! Thank you for investing time into what you have done by adding the stories and putting in the Airmen's photos into your web site. I know when fellow readers of WW II history & events come upon the story they are going to find it very interesting.
