No New Posts Guest Board

In order to join as a Forum Member (i.e., become a plebe), we require that our Guests make themselves known through a few threads on this board. Due to the number of spammers constantly attempting to attain membership, we're expecting that you prove your "humanity". Membership isn't required to start a thread on the Guest Board, so don't abuse the privilege. Spam and product links will be killed joyfully, without toleration. If your post is without merit, or off-topic, or even impolite, we'll kill it fast. Worthwhile posts will be moved where appropriate.

evanspence1: Hello- I am working on a film about my Grandfather, Harold Nathan Smith, who was in the 2 btn. of the 503rd. I'm searching for anyone who has pictures of the Poelau Laut on deck, as well as in the berthing area. Aug 19, 2015 4:37:09 GMT 8
john johnson from Montana: Dear Karl. I am unable to post to forum but I will gladly send you detailed pictures of the flag pole at Ft William Henry Harrison Montana showing it is identical to the flag pole on Corregidor's. FT Harrison was established in late 1890's Aug 24, 2015 6:38:44 GMT 8
john johnson from Montana: s sFT Harrison stopped being an active duty Army post in 1910's and became a medical facility. So Ft Harrison predates 1923 style flag pole I feel we are on the right path to figuring out the history of these flag poles. A direct email you can reach me at Aug 24, 2015 6:41:57 GMT 8
john johnson from Montana: Karl, fodstuff@hotmail.com is an email you can use to reach me. I too studied pictures of the 1898 Spanish warships and did not find a match for our f*g poles. Thank you for sharing your research. Look forward to hearing from you, jjj Aug 24, 2015 6:44:32 GMT 8
