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.
