Is this the Ben Savelkoul who was with me at the Pancratius school in Heerlen Holland in the forties?
If so, contact me. I still speak Dutch and English.

I would like to use one of your pictures of North Africa American Cemetery to commemorate Technician Fourth Class William Tilton Eastlack who was lost in the HMS Rohna disaster of 26 Nov 1943. What should the copyright statement say? Thanks very much for your efforts.

Son-in-law of then 743rd Captain Edward Miller of HQ&HQ Company. Ed retired from the Army in 1965 as an O6, full Colonel. Passed away June 8, 2004 and given under full military honors.

My father Theodore C. Evangelista was in the B Company San Luis Obispo picture 1945. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant. God bless these heroes!

I'm writing to ask permission to use the photo on your website of the 743rd Tank in South Limburg for a book on the men who died in WWII from Minnesota. Thank you for your consideration and for your wonderful website.

Great website. Thank you for your contributions here and elsewhere.

Earlier this year, July 2015, I visited Margraten, after having visited the American cemetery at Neupré and Henri-Chapelle (both Belgium). All three incredibly moving places to visit. Realising that we live in freedom, because all these men (and women!) gave their life for our freedom, is the more strong when seeing all those graves.
Thank you for the website: a job well done! Heel mooi werk, webmaster.
We will remember them. They earned it.

I found a bracelet & some pins in my uncle's belongings after he died. The bracelet had the name George F Dieser 01011842. I searched online and found out he was in the 743rd battalion and the pins I have are the Coat of Arms for the battalion. I don't know why my uncle had these, but I thought the family might want his bracelet. My uncle was the 1st person to receive every maritime license available. I have a newspaper article with his picture and story on it, but I do not believe he was ever in this battalion.

Alleen al de witte linten om de bomen op de n278 maken op mij een grote indruk..& hoe meer je erin verdiept hoe stiller je wordt.

Diep respect voor de verhalen van de gesneuvelde militairen, maar zeker ook voor hen die deze militairen levend houden, door hun verhalen op te tekenen.
Zeker het verhaal van de verpleegkundige die van dienst wisselde, heeft mij geraakt.
Mijn hoop voor de toekomst, mensen vinden die bereid blijven hier tijd voor vrij te maken.

Hallo Ben, heb net laatste bladzijden van het boek De Margraten Boys gelezen. Indrukwekkend hoeveel adoptie van graven betekent voor familie van de gesneuvelde soldaten.

Hallo Ben !
Indrukwekkend wat je allemaal al hebt verwezenlijkt met deze fantastische website ! Ook ik heb een graf geadopteerd gekregen. Het was al lang een wens van mij om zoiets te doen maar ik wist niet goed hoe dit moest gebeuren. Dankzij mijn man is deze wens verwezenlijkt ! "Onze" peetsoldaat ligt begraven te Neupre (Luik) en heeft de naam John Spendolini. afkomstig uit Providence, Rhode Island. Ik hoop dat ik meer kan te weten komen over deze soldaat, misschien kan U mij hierbij helpen. De volgende gegevens heb ik al : Pvt John Spendolini, 175th Infantery Regiment, 29th Infantery Division, Service # 31447149. KIA op 13/9/1944 te Bretagne (France) fort de Montbarey.
Het zou fijn zijn mocht je me op de goede weg zetten om mijn zoektocht te starten, alvast bedankt !
Groetjes van Wendi !

As a student of history, and especially armor of WWII, it was a great find to discover your site. What an amazing story, sacrifice and heroic witness to inspire generations to come. May God continue to bless all those who served, and their families.
