Comments My father, William C Kasdorf, asked me to visit this site for him. He doesn't have a computer. I will print out some pages and send them to him. Your site is incredible. It is giving me the chance to learn about a side of my father he doesn't talk much about.

Comments My husband, Paul M. Stevens, was Chaplain for the 450th. Thank you for including the story, "A Chaplain's Tale" and the pictures of him conducting worship in Manduria. I believe those pictures were taken on an Easter Sunday. Though he was the Protestant Chaplain, he also conducted worship services for those of the Jewish faith in the 450th Bomg Broup. He enjoyed attending the 450th reunions and loved the 450th.

Comments My dad is/was Hollis Lunt, he passed away from heart failure in 9/1980. Does anyone have information on his military service? Unfortunately we sometimes don't have the opportunity to get information from those that can best share it while they are here with us on earth.I remember as a child going to GA, probably around 1963-65 to see the Garretts. While not agreat trip for me, I was sick most of the time, I know my dad enjoyed it. Thanks for all you have done and sacraficed for this country.

Comments I canít thank the men and women of WWII Enough. Ever since I attended the National WWII Memorial dedication in 2004, and met so many WWII veterans, I have been collecting stories from WWII veterans. During this time I have also made a video in honor of all who served during WWII. The video showcases different WWII Museums and Memorials and is set to some big band and WWII era songs. The hopes of this video are not only to thank each of you, but to also present a couple of places you may not have had the chance to visit yet, while listening to some wonderful music. This video is FREE, you pay nothing, however I would appreciate any written stories or copied pictures anyone would like to share. Whether it is one page or 300 pages, anything at all would be wonderful, and I will pay for the postage. Email: Scott@theramseys.org Thank you Please contact me with any questions.
