    Sorry, you are wrong again! I got nothing from the internet. I am far from an ignoramus and you do make mistakes as does everyone. Your opinion that Severloh would have had no training on an MG is laughable. If you wish me to have faith in your info on severloh, give me an actual source for it. I have ask others for a source for that same of information and no one has provided it.

    How can anyone take you seriously when you refuse to provide actual evidence that said whatever you dreamed that I said?

    Judging from the vast amount of bellyaching that you have recently been doing, I would kindly suggest that you seek immediate medical treatment for your condition...
    As it might be stomach cancer.

    So, Shooterike, this was not your posting them?

    Well, it was someone using your account.

    Perhaps, your many Mennonite Granny?

    Maybe, it was your uncle's cousin's brother's father who rode with Jesse James' father's sister's nephew...You were rambling on about something concerning Jesse James that made you feel important, when I lost interest.

    Christ but you're stupid, you can't even understand the simplest of sentences. I said "He was never trained as the MG gunner in an Infanterie Zug or in s.MG Zug." I never said he "had no training on an MG". So dig the horseshit out of your eyes, engage the few brain cells you haven't destroyed with alcoholic senility, and try to follow along with those of us not trying to use shit for brains. Severloh was NOT AN INFANTRYMAN. He was an ARTILLERYMAN, trained as a DRIVER, and acted as an officers ORDERLY when stationed in France. According to his account.

    It also seems that the extent of Shooterike's German Mg experiences is

    Being the bipod.

    The perpetual loud ringing in his ears continues to affect his ability to concentrate and form coherent thoughts.

    I just joined this forum today. Interesting reading everyone's threads. My dad landed on Omaha with the 29th Division. I took him back to Omaha in 2014 to the 70th Anniversary & hope to return this June.

    Brenda,

    You are lucky. I urge you to write down or record your conversations with him about what he remembers, while you can. My Dad, who died in 2006, had a wonderful recall for events that he recounted, particularly on our trip to Normandy in 2000 and to his battlefields on the Westwall in 1968 when he was stationed in Germany before retiring. Sadly though he never wrote them down and neither did I, thinking he would be around forever. Well, he passed relatively suddenly and I will never have the chance to record those memories, I just have my second-hand memories now and no means of double-checking with him or filling in the blanks about things he didn't talk about.

    All the best for your June trip.

    Rich Anderson

    When we went in 2014, we went with MIA group hunting for remains of 2 soldiers in his company that were executed by SS. My dad is now the last survivor. My dad's company ran out of ammo fighting 17th Panzer. His commanding officer, Col Paul Good surrendered them. My dad spent 10 1/2 months in POW camp. He escaped from Zietz (subcamp of Buchenwald) & weighed 74 lbs. After war he went to Military college & stayed in army, retiring Lt Colonel.
    My dad has been featured in 2 museums & on TV, newspapers & a VA magazine.
    I have started writing his war experience for a book. Hope to return this summer to see the POW camps he was in.

    Brenda, just want to say welcome to the forum. Seldom do the discussions get as heated as this thread has become except on " the stump".
    Sounds like you are way ahead of Rich's sound advice regarding keeping a good record while he's still alive. I made a stab at writing about my brother's war experience but in my case I'm afraid my ambition far exceeded my writing skills.
    Have a great trip in June--what a wonderful experience to be going with someone who lived it.

    You mean Colonel Paul R Goode, CO of the 175th Infantry? So your Dad was captured with the elements of E and G Company that surrendered early in the morning of 13 June? He must have quite a story. What was his role then?

    My Dad also retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in July 1969. He entered service from VPI (as Virginia Tech was known then) in February 1943 with a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, Coast Artillery Corps, assigned to AAA. Originally assigned to a 90mm AA Gun Battalion he was reassigned to the 537th AAA Automatic Weapons Battalion in the fall of 1943 and went to England with the battalion in February 1944. They landed on UTAH on the afternoon of 14 June and spent much of the war assigned to the 90th ID. He was not wounded, but received two Bronze Stars, one with "V" device and five Campaign Stars (he also is somewhat unique in that he served in both the Army of Occupation Germany and Japan). I am currently working on a book project (among others) on the 90th's somewhat unsung role in the Breakout (it tends to get overshadowed by its travails in the Cotentin bocage). Please let me know if I can be any help in your research.

    Best regards,

    Rich

    Welcome Brenda, good stuff.

    Glad to get off topic for once. You've peaked my interest Rich; did your dad stay in AAA after the war? Did he deploy to the Korean War?

    Not exactly. He was commissioned in the AUS for the duration, so separated at the end of the war...in November IIRC (have to pull up his 201). My Mom had my older sister in October 1944, so he was out of the Army and married with a one-year old. They went to California where he worked for a short time before getting an offer to work as a metallurgist (his BS degree from VPI) at the Miami-Globe Copper Company in Arizona. Well they quickly decided Globe and Miami were no place to raise a family, so in late 1947 he applied for a AAA commission in the Regular Army. He was accepted as a Reserve Officer and went to Fort Holabird, Maryland where the intelligence school was then and was assigned to one of the 120mm AA battalions organizing in the States for service in Japan, getting his RA commission in route. Japan from 1948-1951 (they defended Japanese airbases during the Korean War), then Fort Sill, a stint teaching ROTC at Michigan State, Fort Knox where he was assigned as battery commander in the 72d AAA AW Bn forming as part of the new 3d AD. Then to Germany (Elvis Presley in tow), DC for a Pentagon tour and CG&SC, Korea for one year unaccompanied, then South Carolina as a NG advisor, then Germany for his final tour before retirement and return to the US. Yes, he was originally Coast Artillery (AA), then AAA, then ADA in his career.

    Rich -

    I will overlook the fact that your father went to VPI. :)

    TROLLS Takao, RichTO90 and Buten42, this one is for all of you, because you ask for it! As Jesse would say, "I'm gonna box your ears, pinch your nose, poke you in the eyes, then cut off your head and hand it to you!" all in words. The three of you just can not get it through your collective heads that Granny was right, it is best to be honest. You three have taken my Post 21, which is clearly a "opinion" based on personal experience which can change over time and warped it into a LIE OF OMISSION by ONLY PRINTING THE PART WHICH BOLSTERED YOUR LIE and refusing to either print the entire post 21 or even give the number of the post so other's could look at it if they wished. Because you knew if they looked they would know what you said was a lie. Here is what you ask for, proof that what I said can happen:

    Remember the April 6, 2017 attack on Syria by tomahawk missiles because of an alleged "saran" gas attack.
    Get on youtube and watch these videos:
    "Why would Assad attack civilians, not military?"
    "Chemical attack was false flag to justify strike"
    "White House Claims on Syrian Chemical attack 'Obviously False' - Prof.Theodor Postol of MIT
    "Ann Couter: Trump Airstrike Very Strange"
    "President Assad of Syria, the Eyes Have it, the Body Language has it"

    Concerning the Tomahawk Missile Strike. Remember the US claimed 22 warplanes destroyed.:
    "Russian MoD: US Missile Strike on Syrian Airbase Prepared a Long Time Ago"
    "The Strike was a Failure, The Base is Still Operational" Russian report, look at this one closely.
    "Did Russia Shoot Down Missiles in Syria?"
