  1. He was born on 27 April 1909 at Fort Dodge, Iowa. He went to the University of Iowa where he was a member of Phi Tau Theta and Phi Chi medicine. He got married on 11 October 1930 in Iowa City with Ruth Ogle and died on 8 August 1951 at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. He was a surgeon on various ships, like the steamship 'Manhattan' (June 20, 1934 to Hamburg, Germany sailing from New York), steamship 'Pennsylvania' (3 Sept 1934 and 20 Oct 1934 to San Francisco via Havana), steamship 'American trader' (sailed 30 November 1934 to London), steamship 'California (sailing from New York on 5
  2. I just saw a news article that a Dutch art collector bought this flag. Article is in dutch: http://www.rtlnieuws.nl/nederland/nederlander-koopt-d-day-vlag-voor-half-miljoen-dit-was-zo-emotioneel "Dutchman buys D-Day flag for half a million: 'This was so emotional'"
  3. I have a few of those plates and they all have the words 'The first liberated city of Holland' on it. They are very common and not that valuable. The bridge on the foreground is the Sint Servaasbridge, which was destroyed when the Germans invaded in 1940 and again in 1944 when the Americans came.
  4. Today, they uploaded all the photo's from the graves with a picture from the 2015 edition: http://www.degezichtenvanmargraten.nl/index.php/en-US/2015/photos-1 For those who were not able to visit last years edition or this years, it's a way to "attend" this event. Members of this forum also contributed by sending photo's of soldiers buried in Margraten, also thanks to them it's not just a name on a marble stone, but a person with families, a wife, children, dreams etc. Steve, I can imagine that your father had some very interesting stories concerning the construction of the cemetery.
  5. "The Faces of Margraten to return May 1-5, 2016 Published: Monday, February 29 2016 The Faces of Margraten tribute will return at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten from May 1-5 this year. The Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven (Foundation United Adopters American Adopters) again calls for photos of the U.S. soldiers who have been either buried or memorialized in Margraten. Since the first edition of the tribute in 2015, over 450 additional photos have already been found. During The Faces of Margraten tribute, faces are put to the 10,023 U.S. soldiers who h
  6. If you are still looking for shops: Between Arnhem and Nijmegen you can find Clements Trading/ Clements Militaria (clementsmilitaria.com), best contact them before visiting. Southwest of Nijmegen IMCS (imcsmilitaria.com) is located, I don't know if you can visit their shop. On 14/15 May in Overloon an event called Militracks takes place, there will also be a large militariashow. If you visit Bastogne I can also recommend you to visit the museums in Baugnez and La Gleize (La Gleize museum has a shop, ardennes44.com).
  7. Nice uniform. Like the 113th CG - XIX Corps combo.
  8. Axis Track Services is selling some vehicles that were in Fury: http://www.axistrackservices.com/#!vehicles/c1ewv
  9. Nice uniforms. Really like the 2nd AD one. Here another photo:
  10. Probably an error, as stated above, that occured when filling in the (burial) reports. I have come across some errors on crosses and in IDPF's. The soldiers were buried there with the hundreds on a day, so it's understandable that errors occured.
  11. Something different for sale than jackets and shirts from Fury: http://www.milweb.net/classifieds/large_image.php?ad=74898&cat=1
  12. The helmet is late WWII and the sticker was probably added post WWII.
