Nathan Adams
James R. Blue (508 PIR Co. A)
I'd like to begin with thanking you for adding my grandfather (through his daughter Sharon Blue Adams) MSG Jim Blue. His entire life was devoted to the memories of his friends lost in combat (particularly Ray Johnston and Walter Dikoon) and the 82nd Airborne-the 508th in particular. He never missed a 508th reunion until his health began to fail. It is the responsibility of men like us to tell their stories to as many as we can about their sacrifices so their valor in combat will never be forgotten-because if not for them we would not have the lives we enjoy today.

If it wouldn't be too much trouble, would you allow to transfer management of his page to me? Not a day goes by that I don't think about my grandfather and biggest hero, and it would be an honor if I manage his page.

Thank you so much for what you do, and may the Red Devils never be forgotten.

-Nathan Adams

RE: William H. Chandler
Greetings,

As noted, I received the information by email a couple of years back. Unfortunately I did not keep the email.

The person who posted William's photo, Lewis Sims Find A Grave #48031900, may be able to help in your research. You might also want to reach out to the person(s) who have supplied his parents, siblings, etc.

Sorry I can't help more. Good luck in your search.

All the best.

Ed

I sent an edit for his death date, but didn't have the specific day. I'm always sad when there's no inscription, and I hope that the family will get together and have it engraved. Regards, Joan

Thank you for the additional information. I've added the information to his bio section. Someone else left other information in the "flower" section as well. I've added that also to his bio section.

Cheers! :)

Oops... short memory/incomplete notes
Okay, it was actually when I was looking for information re: Gazel W. Tomory, another WW-II who died in 2012.

I initially "guessed" that anyone with this fairly uncommon name, living in the same general area would be related... but then I realized how wrong I was. I sent you what I found on YOUR Tomory; so it could be used. Thanks for all you've done so far to "keep the memories alive".

Namasté, "PJ" Braun, ETCM/USN (retired)

RE: Albert Tomory
Not a problem... I was doing some research on his son, because of his military background, so when I found the information on Albert I thought I'd share. This really is a "team sport"...

Memorial# 87157631
re: Clarence O "Clancy" Lyall - coincidentally, my late (French, father-in-law), Marcel H. Arthaud 1913-1993, was also present at Berchtesgaden (and Hitler's Eagle's Nest) during the closing days of World War II. He survived the entire war. Marcel had been present at Casablanca, Morocco (during his mandatory military service) at the onset of WW-II. He refused to fight against the Americans, so he fled to England, to join the "Free French". He landed eventually at Normandy during the "D-Day" operations. Next, he was assigned to the French 2nd Armored Division, to "liberate" Paris. After the close of the war, he returned home to Southern France - with a "press book" of photo-proofs (taken from Hitler's bombed-out retreat at Berchtesgaden), which we believe were taken by Hitler's personal photographer (and then organized into scrapbook-styled pages by, mistress, Eva Braun herself). That is substantiated by a PBS-TV broadcast on the subject. In addition, the full-size bell (from Hitler's chapel) was also salvaged, by Marcel (a radio operator, in an American-built half-track). His daughter (my former wife) is presently in possession of all of those items. See Find A Grave #112465423

Hi Dick
I was going through some old photo requests and I accessed the memorial and read the bio. It appears he died in battle and yet it states that his grave is unmarked. I have decorated many a soldiers grave and most had military stones.
Is there a way to correct this? I find it very sad Thank you
Robin in Wixom MI

RE: Mann photo
:) No problem.

I just thought we should try to give him acknowledgement if possible.

Have a great day.

RE: Mann photo
Mr. O'Donnell:

You can make a suggestion to update the bio of Mr. Mann. To do this, you would:

1. Go to Mr. Mann's memorial
2. In the upper right hand corner, there is an edit button. Click on that button.
3. Click on the line stating "Suggest any other correction or addition."

A box will come up. You can put your suggestions there.

The suggestion will be sent to the sponsor of the memorial. Most times, the sponsor will allow your addition.

Have a great day.

If you have the time, you may want to consider adding more military information to Mr. Mann's bio.

Thank you for your service.

RE: Dale A. Cable
Cemetery registry says that dale and verna ate in the same exact grave but there was no maker for her. Maybe the cemetery office knows more
