36th Troop Carrier Squadron
36th Troop Carrier Squadron and the HUSKY missions.
I am documenting my fathers role as a C-47 pilot for my family in a booklet titled “TUG PILOT”. I’ve posted it online at the Market Garden Info Forum at http://market-garden.info/forum and have received tremendous support in my continued research of my father’s role in the Husky I and II and D-Day missions with the 82nd Airborne Division and the Market Garden and Varsity operations with the British. If you are interested in my research “TUG PILOT” can be downloaded from the Market Garden Info Forum by navigating from the Board Index to Air Forces to General to Tug Pilot. If not a member of the forum you can easily create a member account. "TUG PILOT" includes some great photos of the 36th Troop Carrier Squadron's involvement in HUSKY I and II.

If you have the opportunity to review "Tug Pilot”, and as my body of knowledge continues to grow I would certainly appreciate any information you may wish to share concerning the role of C-47 pilots in the Husky, D-Day, Market-Garden and Varsity operations.

Sincerely,
Frank Welter

Jan,
Yes, of course you can use them. It would be an honor. Although, I would like to re-take the photos without the date on them. If you could give me a couple of days and I'll take care of it. Thank you.

Jan,

Hi, I'm not related. I randomly found the grave of Doris Katherine Strobridge Steffens while taking pictures at Mt. pleasant one day. I saw she had a Daughter of the American Revolution marker on her grave and tried to connect her with her family as best as I could.

Sincerely,

Rich H.

Permission to use picture
Mr. Bos, I was reading through my messages and you sent one to me last year and I'm not sure that I answered..my apologies and I hope it's not too late for your GELA book but you asked if you could use the picture of the grave of Seaman First Class John H. Jones. I believe that if one puts a picture on findagrave that it is for anyone to use but by all means, use the picture any way you like. It is nice of you to offer to credit me for the picture but it's not necessary. Good luck with your books.

True story in Italy during the War.
Captain Corelli's Mandolin is a 2001 epic war film directed by John Madden and based on Louis de Bernières' 1994 novel of the same name. It stars Nicolas Cage and Penélope Cruz. Wikipedia
I saw the movie and I hope it helps with your research.

Request at Calvary Cemetery
In regards to your request at Calvary Cemetery in Glenmont, NY there are easily over 6,000 internments there. If you can call the cemetery and ask where the person is buried I will be happy to go back to that section and attempt to find the gravestone.

You have my permission to use my uncle's photo. I would be interested in knowing when your book is published so that I can obtain a copy. The only place that might have a group picture is at the website dedicated to this airborne division.

Thank you for your efforts.

RE: Pfc Gordon N. Waffle
Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I found a site online that has newspapers from the local towns around where Gordon and some of the other soldiers were from, if you would like to use it for any of your research. The site is www.fultonhistory.com After entering the site, I usually just type the persons name in I am looking for and any newspapers that have that name in them will come up. I've been able to go back as far as the 1800's with some of these newspapers. I have found quite a few articles on Gordon as well as his brothers Mervin and Ralph who also served from this area. My uncle, Arthur Gage, along with Gordon, Ralph, Mervin and another young man from New Berlin, David Raleigh Brown all joined and served together in World War II. Anyway, just thought that site might help in your research. Hope all is well.

Thanks,Cindy :-)

Jan,
Glad to be of service! Our best wishes to you on your work.
I would be honored to have you use the photo. Credit as you see fit, though not necessary.
There are a large number of Whealton burials in this cemetery. Let me know if you would be interested in any others.
Would be glad to work with you again on any other families in this area, too.

RE: 1Lt Leonard L. Shapiro
Of course you can use the photo. Any of the photos I've placed on findagrave can be used by anyone, and receiving credit is not something I'm interested in, but would be interested in reading any part of the book once it is done.

Thanks.

Respectfully,
Bobby Hunt

PFC Scrappy
I forgot to say, that we do not know
for sure if they put Scrappy's remains
with the crew. We want to believe that
they did. If his remains are not with
the crew, we know that His SPIRIT is.

God Bless.

the 57th Bomb Wing website, but I am
sure you may use it, if you credit
the 57th.

First, let me tell you that we have
photos of 4 of the 5 men, posted in the
57thBW Gallery. Here are the web addresses
and they are FREE websites:

At the above site you will find links to
monthly pdf files, on the day by day
missions and activities, of the 321st BG
and some for the 310th BG. In those
files, you will find the mission they
were on, the MACR, and other info.
