    Just wanted to make a post and introduce myself to the fellows in this forum. I'm Ty, been circling around the sun for almost 26 years now. I originally come from Ohio, but currently reside in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I've been interested in WW2 for most of my life, especially as a child with all the stories from my Grandpa. I came across this website and am hoping it'll be a fun tool to use in future research. I'm proving myself to be a somewhat okay researcher, so I enjoy it as a hobby now.

    A current project of mine is tracking down a friend of my Grandpa's that served during the Battle of the Bulge. I came across a recant he had typed up recalling his time in the war. He mentions being apart of the 66th Armored and being a PoW at Stalag 11B (Falingbostel) and working at a gasoline refractory in Misburg outside of Hanover during his time as a PoW.

    The link is the scanned PDF copies of his story. Let me know what you guys think!

    Glad to have you here. The PDF you posted is very good. Is there a name attached? Maybe I just missed it. Old eyes, you know. If you have a name maybe we can give further information.

    Welcome to the Forums Ty! What part of Colorado are you residing at? I'm from Monument, a few miles Southeast of Colorado Springs.
