Re Pvt Pistella
I left a message with Rich Vance as there is a way in the article to get in touch with the reporter who wrote it. Maybe Rich or your group could get in touch with the reporter to see about obtaining permission to post the pictures. If it is a relative, especially the one whom they mentioned in the article, who owns the copyright, maybe the reporter will put you or Rich Vance in touch with the relative to be able to get permission to post the pictures. It would be wonderful if that could be given! Good luck.

Unfortunately, the photos are copyrighted, and as such I cannot copy and post them.

PFC John S Pistella #34649797

Did you see the below story about a Dutch family finding a bracelet engraved with PFC John Pistella's name on it? It's a wonderful story with a good picture of him accompanying the article. Also found his parents - mother's name is listed as Elizabeth - and he had brothers who were also WWII vets. But will send that via SAC and regular edits.

Cpl Ray Martin, KIA 73 Years Ago Today!
God bless the soul of my hero, my late Uncle Ray, U.S. Army Infantryman. Corporal Raymond E. Martin, 24, was Killed-In-Action against the Japanese Army 73 years ago today! The sad location was on the Island of Attu in the then U.S. territory of Alaska. Uncle Ray was buried @ Little Falls Cemetery on Attu. After the war he was exhumed and interred in Detroit at Mount Olivet Cemetery. The fighting took place under brutal Arctic conditions with many of the battles fought in hard won hand to hand combat! We Americans lost 549 brave soldiers during the almost three week long battle with 1,148 wounded. The Jap enemy losses were in excess of 2,850 dead with 29 captured. Under any search engine type in the words 'The Battle of Attu' to read more about the subject...

RE: Pvt David Copper
As a child, I have been told that he ran into an ambush and was running to get on the other side of the railroad track and was wounded and die in German Hospital.
The other was he was in a tank.
I just like to know or verified the cause of death.
I was station in France 1964-65, en-route from Paris to Laon AFB (Old German Air Base)via rail. I was just recalling the story of his death.
I appreciate your help in regard to David.

I downloaded the marker pic I took this a.m. Have a couple more pics showing items in the distance so the marker can be found easily but when downloaded they came out sideways so I did not include them. If you need them I can send them as attachments as I will save them.
Edward's marker is not attached to a steel rod that goes deep into the ground, it is just laying on the ground so I am hoping it does not get moved by anyone as I'm not even sure that it has been placed correctly.
If I can help again let me know...

Aleutian Islands
I was reading your bio and saw here you mentioned the men who were on the Aleutian Islands. I watched a show on the History Channel last night about them. What a hard place to be stationed. The conditions were awful. I will be interested to read aout the men that are included.
