Comments: I am English and live near Nettlebed. I am researching the American Army units that were based in the Henley, Nettlebed, Kingwood Common, Peppard, Badgemore and Checkendon areas in 1943 to 1945. I have a particular interest in the Station Hospitals at Kingwood Common and Checkendon. I am looking for any one with memories, photos, plans they would be prepared to share with me or any ideas for places to look. There is a small concrete 'Engineer Castle' still in the woods near Nettlebed. It was made by the 343rd Eng Batt and I am told it was one of two at the entrances to the camp. Hence your page on the Castle device as used by the Engineers was very interesting! Best wishes from Oxfordshire Tony PS in mail address replace 'at' with '@'

My husband and I went to France in May of this year and went to the beach where they landed and also Angers France. It was very moving to go the areas they went to during the war. I hope to see more next year on our trip to Belgium.

Last year the family of Captain Waters came for the celebration. Now there is a monument where is father had met the Polish Army. I'am mention to on this monument for my work which had know a good success. But Maybe I borrow you with all of this. The firts picture at right you show in your very fine site called : Muddy road, is in fact a picture which had been took very close Chambois. We see G.I.'s from the 90th and a lot of prisoners from the 7. Armee. When I'll get more time I'll examine every page from your site. Congratulations. Sincerely yours.

Comments: I know my dad was in WWII I'm not sure what his status was. Unfortunately I wasn't always listening as a kid and was one of those who took things for granted at the time. I truley wish I had paid attention and asked more questions of his duties and where abouts....I can't ask him now. I only know I want everyone out there to know how important it is to remember and recognize there brave men and women for their dedicated lives they have given. Some returned and some did not. No matter what branch you are or were in I thank you for answering your call. God Bless and Keep you with him.

Comments: I was a Tech Sgt in the 1135 Combat Enginer Group Hq to which the 150th was attached much of the time we were i Europe. I remeber the Rhie crossing near Oppenheimer where the 150th did so well, as they also did building bridges on lesser rivers and streams, and over craters in the roads.

Comments: My Grandfather George J. Snider was a member of the 252 D Engineer Combat Battalion. My grandfather passed away in Feb, of 2000. I regret not asking him about his experiences. From what I gather from other family members he didn't talk about it much. I do have a copy of a book celebrating the 50th Anniversary(Sept 9 1993) of the 252nd Enginerr Combat Battalion. It has several letters thanking them for their services and an individual history of sorts of Company A,B and D. I am willing to share info. Thank you. Lisa

Comments: Thank you Soldier Have you stopped to thank a veteran today? For the price of freedom they had to pay? Did you gaze into those distant eyes? Did you see the ghosts he can't deny? Did you think a soldier's heart was made of steel? Because he was trained to kill, he couldn't feel? Did you see the guilt written on his face, For the loss of life he can't replace? Did you know he mourns the lives he couldn't save, And walks with comrades in their grave? Did you remember the boy with innocence lost? Do you really know war's ultimate cost? Have you felt the blast of artillery fire? Do you have the courage it would require? Have you stood in trenches consumed with fear? Felt the enemies breath so very near? Have you walked with God on a battleground? Seen your brothers dead or dying all around? Have you stopped to thank a vet today, Or did you just turn and walk away? From the pain he'll carry for the rest of his life, Did you consider his family, his children, his wife? That watch him suffer in silence each and every day, As he's haunted by memories that don't go away? Did you care that the soldier is still pulling guard? That his heart, mind, and soul will forever be scarred? Do you know how he suffers from ptsd? Or that our precious freedom is never free? Do you care that he still hears the blood curdling screams? Or that he returns to the war each night in his dreams? Have you felt the sorrow of a combat vet? Or would you rather just forget? That war has pierced his hardened heart, And torn this soldier all apart? Would you rather our heroes just fade away? Or will you stop to thank a vet today? By Chris Woolnough

Comments: I am a German. According to the content of this website The 150th. passed my hometown Gross-Gerau in March 1945, 8 miles east from the place of the Rhine crossing at Oppenheim and liberated us from the Nazi regime. Thank you very much. At this time I was a first grader nearly 7 year old and still have a good memory of seeing the first American soldiers entering the farmhouse we lived in.
