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.

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.
