Nearly all of the memorials I have entered and flowers left are somehow related to our family, if you happen to be related would love to hear from you.|
I am currently working on trying to locate the final resting place of all the men who were part of the First Special Service Force, aka Devil's Brigade or Black Devils. In July 2013, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded, collectively, to the First Special Service Force, in recognition of its superior service during World War II. Presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal took place February 3, 2015 in Washington D.C.
My father-in-law, C.W. "Tiny" Beacon served in this elite unit.
Most memorials I have created in CT cemeteries are not family and happy to transfer to family or anyone who wishes to take care of memorial.

Yes you may use the photos i took for your military project
|Glen Leroy Campbell||George Thomas Bundy|
My name is Glen Campbell and my father's name was Harold Nelson Campbell.
My father and George were good friends. We would visit him in London, Ontario, where we also live.
He had a cottage on Long Point Ontario and we would go out in his cedar strip motor boat and fish.
Tho young, I got a love for him. He was quiet and kind.
It wasn't until after I was talking to dad about the movie I saw called "Devil's Brigade" that dad took be aside in silence that the movie was based on a unit George served in. I kept quiet about it.
George never talked about the war nor was it a conversation we ever got into.
I never told anyone and have really learned next to nothing since. Couple years ago, my uncle by marriage, said how he had considered George a bit on a strange duck. I kinda took offense to the statement and stated "You know why, Don't you".
Then told him what I knew. I eventually showed him information I had gotten of the internet. He got medals at Saint Ours France, with a couple others of his group.
I really don't know anything else about his service. I don't know if he was with the Special Forces before their were disbanded from the USA members. It was hard on their unit splitting up.
I recalled their had a son called ( Ronny ? ) but I honestly cannot remember his wife's name.
I want to do their genelogy and history but seems blocked to me.
I understand Special Forces is meeting in Pettawawa Ontario this year. Wonder if you could pass this on OR if I can find more from you.
I was excited to see your remembrance of George.
