My Dad was Alfred Bila, would love to share stories with others.
I have just found a photo of the whole group of the Engineers in front of the Arch of Triumph in Paris. I need its date. Contact me at my email address. Thanks.
Sorry, but I can't help you with that photo. The 85th was never in Paris as a unit.
My Father Sam Hopkins was in the 85th engineer. I wonder if any one is still living that was with him. He was from Sneedville tennessee.
Hi Judy, Your father Sam visited my dad back around 2004. I sat in on their visit and had a great time hearing the stories. I am not aware of any still living.
Adam and and Hopkins are also listed in Leonard's book.
Rod, in Leonard's service book he listed his buddies.M.H Obarr, box 393 Cullman, Alabama, along with M.L. Obarr same address.your relation?
My Uncle was MH and my dad ML. They were twins.
Rod, I will try to get you a pic of Sgt. Kramer and his car. I also have his purple heart and diary leading up to days before his death.
Thank you sir! He deserves a special tribute.
