    If you're interested in making contact with family of the men your grandfather served with, that's a good way to start.

    Good thinking jacksgrandd. This post will be here for years (I'll see to that!), so anyone else googling these names if the future should come across this thread. Adding the unit name to the thread title will also help. Post it here and I'll make the proper edits,
