Bio and Links
I am an Illinois high school teacher who became involved in an memorial to the 192nd Tank Battalion. Since then, we have added the 194th Tank Battalion and 17th Ordnance to the website. Most of the pages I deal with have to do with members of the two tank battalions or 17th Ordnance. In addition, there are a number of pages that are memorials to former students, of the high school I teach at, who died in World War II and Vietnam.

Grave of William Mahen
Dear Jimo

Thank you for taking the time to send me the photo of the grave of Sgt. William J. Mahen, Jr.

The photo arrived on my birthday which added to the experience.

William Mahen was my cousin but he was more like an older brother to me. I was quite young when he was killed.

Your efforts are deeply appreciated.

Memorial B Co 192nd Tank Battalion

I am the Newsletter Editor of the Roots and Gold Dust Genealogical Society in California. We have members from Illinois in which we are doing some research in. I would like to use your photos and information to honor so many who lost their lives during the WWII. It might inspire others to do a project for other military groups in their home town.

Please let me know if I have your permission to post this information.

Thank you for your time,

RE: Charles Vollmer
Thank you. I hadn't quite gotten to his page yet so thanks for the help.

I wonder if he had a photo in an old year book. Or do you think that photo of him in uniform is from the high school year book?

RE: Charles Vollmer
That would be interesting to see the memorial book information. Maybe you could add it to his page.

RE: Charles Vollmer
Interesting. What is your source? Now I see you have added a photo. And there is family resemblance.

I did see in his mother's obituary that he preceeded her in death so that makes sense.

Can you link him to his parents?

Charles Vollmer at Rock Island National Cemetery
Hi Jim
I was wondering if this Charles Vollmer (1283283) is the same Charles Vollmer that is the son of Charles Vollmer Sr and Clara Vollmer (124640648 & 124641168)?

Charles Sr. is the brother of my great grandmother Anna Marie Vollmer Bell.
