  1. Thanks for the info. I have been looking for a tripod.
  2. Hubert Hawkins from my hometown of Travelers Rest, SC died in the battle. He was on the Samuel B. Roberts.
  3. Has anyone done interviews with veterans using a Flip camera?
  4. I am seeking information on the role of the Boy Scouts during WWI and WWII for some research that I am doing? Does anyone have a story, information, pictures, list of resources, etc. to share?
  5. Tonight at our Sons of the American Legion meeting our speaker was a man who claims that he sent the military the idea for the dummy parachutes when he was a teenaged Boy Scout in 1942.

Does anyone know if this type of book was published for any other state? I am especially interested in finding out if one was published for North Carolina.

In every interview I learn something new. Sitting down with a veteran and talking with him/her about his/her military experiences is like reading a good history book. In 1995 I edited a book of interviews done by students across the state of South Carolina. The book was published in 1995. The title is South Carolina Remembers World War II.

  12. The dress is gray with pointed collars. It is id'ed to a woman whose husband's navy uniform I already have. I know he served in the Navy during the Vietnam War. I have two of his cruise books. A former neighbor thinks she served from 1952-1954.
