My tribute to those who fell in battle
After a very busy period I finally had some time to update my website. Added some pictures on John Cangiano's page from my visit to his hometown in 2016 and Tony Cangiano (John's nephew) visit to the the Henri-Chapelle cemetery in 2017. Also a lot of new pictures on Stephen Slabak's page, some documents on Rudy Esquibel's page and the document with Glenn Goodwin's name in it, as he is awarded the Combat Infantry Badge.
Update on John Caccese's page after receiving a letter from his brother Frank
- New page for Perry Powell and Bruce Phelps. These 2 men and the rest of their crew stayed a few days in Wieze, Belgium, where I live.
- Glenn Goodwin: added some documents and a picture of Glenn and his cousin Leigh.
- Stephen Slabak's page: added a small extract from his 1936 high school yearbook.
