RE: Richard Stockhouse
No mention of Richard's military service in his obituary. However, I found a write up of his marriage in the "Rhinelander Daily News" on June 29, 1954. It states in the article that Richard "served for three years as a paratrooper in the European theater of World War II."

RE: My Dad
I do know that my dad lost a lot of his men. Remembering that would send tears rolling down his cheeks when he remembered them dieing in his arms. Just seeing a historical show on TV could bring that back for him. I could tell it was hard for him to remember so I didn't question him much about his experiences. Now I wish I had. Thanks for the other email addresses. I'll try to contact them tonight. I greatly appreciate all the help you've given me Domi!!! May you be blessed 10 fold for your kindness!!

My Dad
DOMI!!!!! GUESS WHAT!!!!!!!!! I found a pic of my dad's military headstone on Billiongraves!!!! It has his unit on it!!!! It says he was "CO H 507th Parachute Inf" which supposedly was part of the 551PIB. I'm not sure if that's right or not though. I started researching the 551PIB and found a Harvey K Burrow under their C company list. On the 551PIB website it has a listing for a book by Douglas Dillard. I'm thinking that's the guy you referred me to. I figured the email you gave me might have had a typo in it since it came back invalid; so I tried deleting the last d that came before the aol and tried sending it again. I'm still waiting to see if I get an answer but at least it hasn't bounced back again as invalid!! What info do you have on the 507th????

RE: My Dad
I tried writing Mr. Dillard but the email came back as undeliverable; so apparently he's either changed his email or simply let this emailbox go unchecked for too long. Thanks for trying Domi!!! I appreciate your efforts!!!

Robert E. Haskell - Memorial # 56281885
I research the Haskell family for a close friend and have been looking for this part of the family's burials. I was so surprised to find Robert in Belgium, had no information regarding his military service until I found the memorial. Your photograph is priceless to his family here in California, USA.

With the memorial and your photograph, I am going to try to learn where he died and more specific information about his service. His extended family should know the circumstances that warranted the award of a Purple Heart medal.

Thank you both for your service to your own country and for your generosity in ensuring our fallen Veterans are not forgotten. If you're ever in Los Angeles, CA, perhaps you'll allow me to take you to lunch or dinner. Until then, many, many thanks!

RE: My Dad
Thank you!! That's very kind of you to offer to help me!! The only reference I've found to him so far in regards to his military record is located on the website of the East Texas Genealogical Association. I have the link on Daddy's memorial page near the bottom under the section Military Service Record. Here's the link though (and hopefully I can actually get the HTML to work on this message board but if not just copy and paste it into the URL up top:

RE: My Dad
Oh.... by the way.... did you happen to notice that record has the soldier joining the service in 1939 but his year of birth is 1943? That pregnancy must have been **VERY*** hard on his mother!!!!! LOL
