Comments: My brother,Pfc. Clyde Ferguson, was killed on 11-25-44. I was only 8 years old and do not know many of the details. I remember my father and mother receiving a letter from a Sgt. telling how he was killed. Their house burned and all of this information was lost. I found in your log on that date two fatalities occurred and I would be interested in any other information you might have regarding my brother.

His name was John C. McDonald from California. He was either a PFC or CPL at the time. His specialty was Bailey Bridges. If anyone knows about the 145th, I would appreciate it. I have been to Europe a number of times, following the path the Third Army took. My most recent tour was with Patton's Headquarters Group.

My father was one who never chose to talk about his war experience, not even to my mother , who is still living. She was thrilled to see this website; particularly the H&S photos since two photos of my father were included. I read all of your website with the hope of learning exactly what he went through and why he was awarded the Bronze Star. (Iwould love for someone to tell me what he and his buddies went through since it had such a huge impact on him. As I said, he never chose to share his wartime experience. All I can surmise is that it much have been horrific.)

What I did in Viet Nam was but a drop in the bucket compared to the incredible sacrifices your generation made before, during and after the war. My father had just finished his inlistment when WWII started, so, he re-inlisted and spent his WWII days in the asian theater. He's the most incredible person I know. He has been, IS, and always will be my HERO! God Bless and Watch Over Everyone of You. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Comments: I've been trying for some time to find any info about the 1260th Combat Engineers of WWII. Can you help? I would love to go to a reunion if they had one or maybe talk to a survivor. I have no idea what they did as my father would not talk about the war at all. Thanks so much.

Thank you for your efforts to ensure that the memories of those who served are retained for our future referance. We must never forget where they went and why they had to go. Too much is lost already. Keep up the good work and tell your dad thanks from someone who was not around then but is now. Bil

Comments: I served in another Combat Engineer Battalion which was Commissioned at Fort Devens August 1,1943.My Unit,the 179th, was comprised mainly of New Jersey,New York,western Pennsylvania,and southern Indiana inductees.I remember the 150th & the 206th Battalions undergoing Basic Training at the same time.Everyone at Devens then will remember Marching in Berlin on Armistice Day 1943.Thats Berlin,Massachusetts. The 179th left Devens in early January 1944.We spent the first four months of 1944 on Winter Maneuvers in West Virginia with the 35th Division.On May 1 1944, we shipped to Fort Dix and on July 1 we departed for England.On July 20 we departed South Hampton and came ashore in France two days later. We were assigned to the 20th Corps and generally operated on the right flank or just South of 12th corps. Our first river crossing was the Seine on the day Paris was liberated.We did the Assault Crossing.I forget who built the bridge. The next River Was the Moselle and we crossed the 90th Infantry at Katenom.Heavy Casualties in both of these two operations mostly from artillery.Damn 88's.

Comments: I am 19 years old and had several family members in WW2, My Grandfather especially was the one that got me into studying WW2. He was an airplane/everything mechanic. He told me that bulldozers, power shovels,scrapers,and graders helped win the war as much as the tanks and guns did. My Dad has been an equipment operator since the was 16 nearly 40 years as with my older brother. I started when I I was 14. I am interested in old equipment pictures because I've been exposed to it all of my life. I have 2 books on Caterpillar tractors and they both have WW2 Engineer photos. I operate a John Deere scraper for my dad and a backhoe and dump truck for my brother. I'm getting better a operrating a dozer and grader. My Neigbor's family used to have a rather large consruction company and have old equipment In the woods by my house. zIve talked with him on puchasing one of the old cable D7 Cats and a LeTourneau carryall scraper and restoring them.

Comments: My dad was Captain James Gray, originally from Pawtucket, R.I. He was wounded in Germany, recovered in England and returned to Germany at the end of the war. I don't believe that he ever missed one reunion. The 150th was a fraternity to beat all fraternities for him. He kept contact with many of the guys of the 150th, especially Andy Churchill. I can remember that name growing up and sitting on Dad's lap as a kid looking through all the photos and memorabilia. I can also remember the night the shrapnel that was still in his knees shifted - I had never seen my Dad in pain before, but then realized how bad it was. The 150th has been a part of my growing up. I know how proud Dad would be to know this website was up and available. I shall check back.
