Do you know how to make roaches (in this case--roach) come out of the woodwork?
"You smoke them out."
Well--the said roach in question has been smoked out of hiding.
Good job at smoking the roach out Erich.

A bit of a nationalistic answer here, as I am a Canadian. I wouldn't mind serving as Fighter Group Captain in the Royal (Canadian) Air Force attached to the RAF. It would find it an honor to fly with J. Johnson.
Well said Otto.
I also wouldn't mind serving with the 36th Infantry Division--the T-patchers. It was a Division from Texas and with many many Texans in it's ranks.
The most famous of the 45th Infantry Division veterans was from New Mexico. Check out
The 36th Inf Div had several Medal of Honor Recipients as well. One of them I found out too late--didn't live very far from where I do. He passed away a week before I found out that he was living in San Antonio.
Oh and especially for your info--that division also sent a Sergeant whom I knew (now deceased) who served as one of Pres Roosevelts Honor Guard. His name is Greg Wiley--if anyone wants to look him up.
He passed away about 10 or so years ago--his widow still lives in Kingsville, Texas.

Carl, you should come up to Austin on a Wednesday - Sunday and visit the Camp Mabry museum. They have quite alot on the 36th division and in September they will have a bunch of reenactors giving shows. They also have gotton lots more tanks recently, I think there about 30 now. The price is right too, FREE ! You would be welcome to stay over night at my house. http://www.kwanah.com/txmilmus/about/exhibits.htm
Thanks for sharing the website TA152. That looks like a very interesting museum.
Looks like that will be fun!
With the new thread being listed here, and continuing on -
while all you guys are just wishing to be on this front or that front, in this army, or that navy, I'd of hoped to have been assigned to a support unit assisting a WAC, WAVE, WASP, or Nursing unit providing the female troops with their bare necessesities!
LOL! True Bill! I would like to submit a request for transfer! 38th evac hospital, 5th army.
Thanks TA--i'd like to at some point. In fact--just today my sister invited me to stay at the Condo we have in Bandera--just 30 mins drive from San Antonio. But--I had to pass as I have to replace the struts on my car and as it is--I could'nt take a chance on driving that far.
I might be able to do this later this year though.
Tanks? I love tanks
I would agree with Otto, I think though serving a career a little like Buzz Berling would be nice, start off at Malta and serve after in the Western Theater, but serve the whole war.
I would way rather be in Fighter Command then Bomber Command too, Bomber Command, which would most likely be 6 group as a Canadian, was a dealth trap.
Just let me know when and we will go Carl.
Just 400 posts to go and you break the bank !
Thanks TA--i'll be looking forward to that and I might be able to go for a visit sometime this winter. I hope they will allow pics to be taken as I will want to take a bunch. Also--when i;m in the area--I will get some good pics of The Alamo as well.
Oh and as of this posting--only 321 more to go before "breaking the bank,"
Yeah, Carl, The big 10K is already in your sights...Congrats already!
Where are you gonna put your medals then..on your back??
Still the same here.
Infantry officer in some German regular infantry division. Italy and the Eastern Front would be nice.
And I wouldn't mind being an Artillery officer either.
You are probably the only person I know who would have positive things to say about serving on the Ost Front my friend.
