I'm only 19 years old but there has always been such a wish of mine to have lived during WWII. For my senior prom I got a ladies home jorrnal from 1942 and had a dress made just like one pictured. I guess this may sound fool hearty to folk who grew up wanting nothing more than peace.

Comments: My father, Robert H. Young, was a sargeant in Company B of the 146th Engineer Combat Battalion. He landed on Omaha Beach during the first wave and was wounded later that morning. During the Battle of the Bulge, his unit was near Monschau, Germany, and was attached to the 38th Cavalry Recon. Squadron. On 29 march 1945 his unit crossed the Rhine River at Neiderbreisig and were at Kaltenbrunn when Germany surrendered. I am trying to obtain a unit history of the 146th ECB and any other information that might be available.

Comments: Excellent site! As a former combat engineer in the Canadian Army, (1990 - 96) I appreciate and respect the efforts and heroism of those 'sappers' who came before us. The work of the combat engineer during battle is often overlooked, but I know from being a former member of that community, albeit during peacetime, how essential to the completion of a units misson the efforts of the engineers are. God bless those of you who fought and sacrificed in service to your country and the ideals which keep us all free. May we all be proud of your service.

Comments: Excellent homepage and detail. What a great tribute to your father. As a retired Army engineer (1972-1992), I realize the many unsung accomplishments of the engineers during this and all wars. The story of the Treadway bridge reminds me of the Class 60 floating bridge we erected across the Rhine a little further south (just north of Mannheim) outside Worms in March 1975. Our bridge was a little over 1150 feet or 85 floats if I remember correctly. Of course, this was done for peacetime training and not an assault or under fire. Even so it was a task worth remembering. Thanks for your page on the 150th Engineers and thanks for all the great bridging pictures. Charles L. Gallion, Jr. Major, USA (Retired) Corps of Engineers

Comments: After seeing "Saving Private Ryan" and now being directed to this exceptionally wonderful, and revealing website. We truly are amazed at how "modest" Sgt. Arthur Boucher and his fellow soldiers were. When asked by their children and grandchildren, what they did during the war, they told their families that they "just built bridges". This was dismissed for many years as "all they did during the war". After reading your story, now we know better. We are truly "amazed at the courage and unrecognized heroism" that you and each of your men endured during the war. To Dad and Grampa Boucher we say, "THANK YOU AND WE LOVE YOU!!" You make us prouder than you will ever know. Love, Jacqui, Walter, Mark, Jim, and Katie
