  1. I wish I had more info but I don't - the photos were given to me by someone I used to work with who retired and moved back to France. They had belonged to her late husband who is seen near the top of the thread.
  2. Not USMC but swooping R nonetheless. KIA 27 December 1944
  3. Hey I recognize one of those! I seriously can't wait for this to be available - best of luck finding a good publisher. As someone who has been there and gone through a similar situation I can sympathize. Looks absolutely terrific Dave.
  4. Unreal. Always nice to see a group to a local fellow - I grew up down the road from Huntington.
  5. Just a legislative point... When this Congress adjourns for the year this bill will be dead and if there are plans for it to proceed in the new Congress next year it will need to be reintroduced. Not saying that won't happen but it is a procedural point worth noting.
  6. ^^^ Here's an example from the Pearl Harbor PHs thread showing the date 12-7-41
  7. As a war grave I think it's probably unlikely they remove anything from the site. Paul Allen and his team are incredible. In the last 5 years they've found what feels like every major missing wreck from WWII. He's like the Indiana Jones of the oceans. With billions of dollars to boot.
  8. Looking for the Navy GCM to Herman Bullinger. Possibly dated 1937.
  9. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I think it only has to be reintroduced in the House every 2 years when a new Congress is sworn in. We're still in the 115th Congress (Jan 2017 - Jan 2019).
  10. The language aspect I totally get... it's the archeology part that's a bit confounding. Do archeologists make good interrogators? Or I suppose the value of his language skills outweighed the rest. From the Ivy League to writing about Dionysiac Sarcophagi to interrogating French nazi collaborators. Kind of sounds like Indiana Jones.
  11. So they did a lot of counter intelligence investigations and obtaining of documents and known enemy agents when troops would enter a city - but for the life of me I can't figure out what someone with a fine arts and archaeology background would be doing in Normandy investigating enemy agents... seems like an odd use of their specialty. Though perhaps since he studied at the Sorbonne he was fluent in French...
  12. That's fascinating. I wonder what he was doing in Normandy... perhaps one of the Monuments Men?
  13. Any idea what unit he was attached to with the Counter Intelligence Corps?

  15. Looking for the Purple Heart to Pfc. Frank Shutinsky - 12th Field Artillery Observation Battalion. KIA 29 June 1944.
