Jeep I am looking for a speaker for my church's father/son banquet to be held on the Thursday or Saturday before Fathers Day. There should only be 30 to 40 people in attendance. I believe that an experienced WWII veteran will be able to address the statement "there are no atheists in fox holes". The church is located in Glen Rock Pennsylvania. Can you help? The speaker could speak between 20 and 30 minutes. There is a free dinner beforehand. Thanks.

Jeep Hello.
I'm growing up in the middle of WW-II. Happily I survived. Now I'm 65. Still busy with this part of my life. Collecting WW-II Movies. It is only a problem to get this movies. I cannot buy this here locally. Can somebody tell me where I can download this. I have only 56K but I'm used to download movies. So the "speed" is not a problem but I cannot find sites where I can download this sort of movies. Most of the time I only see games with the name if this movies.

Every help will be appreciated.


Homer Dellysse - Central Islip, USA.

Jeep Hi, I need some assistance in finding out what my fathers brother did to so honorably achieve the purple heart with oak leaf cluster,bronze star and silver star in WW11. He was killed either at the Battle of the Bulge or a bit later during the Rhine river area efforts.

He was with the 104th Infantry Regiment,26th Infantry Division and his name was Sgt.Clement Digrugillers(s/n 32340887). Uncle Clement entered the Army from NYC. He was killed 14March 1945 and is buried at the Luxembourg American Cemeetery. As it took over 30 years for my parents/family to find out where he was buried it would be quite nice to learn how he was credited with the above medals.
Thank you.

Eric & Hugh - Rye. East Sussex, England.

Jeep A plea for informationfrom from two Sussex Men who were Post World War Two children who grew up, and are still living in Sussex England.

What we would like to find out is, first hand accounts of conditions, what you did, where you lived, life in general. Any information would be gratefully received. Thank You.

Randy - Delmar, USA.

Jeep I am in need of some assistance and this looks like a great site to find it. With 1,500 WW2 vets passing each day, there are many stories being lost forever. I am working on a book to tell the stories of the vets in a partiular section of our country which will include Merchant Marines as well. I am not sure just when the US was first attacked (Merchant Marine ships carrying supplies to England)by Germany nor when the war was unofficially over. By this I mean afterwards, we had occupation of Japan and grave registration all over the Pacific and Europe. Those service personnel will also be included. Additionally,in an effort to make it easier on this 'greatest generation', I am looking to identify the countries that were involved in the Pacific Theater, the European Theater, and the Eastern Front.

Thanx for your assistance on this matter.
