I would like the thank Brian Carusella and Steven Schoenherr, who made copies from the newsreel films at the National Archives. 

Brian is also working on a new book about the 5th Army in WWII, which is something to really look forward to.

Heartfelt thanks goes out to Major James Scott Rawlinson and the men and women of the American Forces Network South in Vicenza, Italy.  Together they continue to "Serve America's Best" and keep my father's mission alive.


I would also like to thank my sister Bonnie for taking care of Mom all these years, and for sending me boxes and boxes full of photos that my dad didn't have room for in his scrapbook.  (Stay tuned...There's a few more megabytes of storage remaining on this server...)

And finally, thanks to my wife Kathy and my kids, Mindy and Tommy who have put up with my incessant pounding on the computer keyboard while I work on this project.
