  1. Dick, as a world War II history buff, I commend you on your new website. I know it will be of great interest to anyone who has even the slightest curiosity in this important segment of our history. Well done and good luck!

  2. If you’re a World War 11 history buff, or even vaguely interested, especially in the Euopean theater, you need to read Black Ops, volume 1, and/or Black Ops, volume 2. The war itself has been documented and written in great detail. The part that is much less known is the great sacrifices of the secret agents of US, British, and French decent who were dropped on beaches, or parachuted into France to work with brave members of the French resistance. The sacrifices of these people are at times difficult to comprehend, except for their willingness to give their lives for their country. These are truly heart-wrenching stories!

  3. Excellent website, Dick. Suppose you and Seattle Jerry watch “Foyle’s War” on Sundays, PBS at 8 pm PST. One of the episodes – in part, has to do with a brave British fisherman and his son crossing to the coast of Normandy in their trawler on June 6, 1944 to transport the wounded back to England…….
    FYI: Howard Nadler, our neighbor in Paso Robles, CA during my childhood, was one of the guys who raised the flag on Iwo Jima – both the first, real raising and the second one staged for publicity and memorialized in photographs and engravings. Crazy stunt to do under intense fire. Some of those men didn’t survive beyond the photograph.

    Remember me? Los Vagabundos trips to Copper Canyon and Jalpan plus some good laughs over a glass of wine.

    Where are you now?

  4. Thanks for including me in the mailing of the new website. My dad, uncles and many relatives were part of that conflict. I never understood the severity until I read Tom Brokaw’s books. Now I’m a follower of articles and books on WWII. Look forward to your posts.
