Hello everyone! Thanks for having me. Im a Gulf War era Marine (Sgt). I've been reading American war history since I could read a book. Mostly WW2, then Vietnam and the rest of my reading I would categorize as "random". Im here to learn and I should have joined something like this a long time ago. I look forward to the different threads. Im also trying to learn more about the unit history of a couple Great Uncles that served and were KIA in WW2. One in Normandy and one in The Phillipines. I know next to nothing about their service records and I have no pictures, so Im doing what I can to piece together their story, so that their stories and sacrifice will be known forever. Im unofficially the family military historian. Thanks again for having me! Bill S.
