RE: Philp Spencer of the Somers
Hello Doug. Thanks so much for your reply. I have a copy of those transcripts but I can't find Spencer's birth date in them. I am preparing an article on the Somers and your find-a-grave memorial is the only source I can locate which gives a specific date of birth for Philip Spencer. Even the published Spencer genealogy does not. Most such documents say "1824" or "about 1824" because he was 19 years old at the time of his death. Could you tell me where in the trial report you find his date of birth?
Thanks very much. I have an actual copy of the trial report but digitized editions are also available on-line. I can send you links if you can't find them but I would be super grateful to have this reference so I can cite it.
Many thanks.

LTC Norman Dike

This is up to you, but you may wish to add LTC Norman Dike (53208215) to your Band of Brothers virtual cemetery.

Dike was transferred from Division HQ to Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division in the first week of November 1944 becoming Company Commander.[5][6][7] During the assault on Foy, Dike had ordered a platoon to go on a flanking mission around the rear of the town.[8] During their charge, he ordered them to take cover.[8] His subordinates informed him they were going to get killed because they were sitting ducks.[8] At the same time, Captain Richard Winters, former commander of Easy Company and the Battalion executive officer, tried radioing him to tell him the same thing. Having no idea how to control the situation, Dike froze.[8][9] As Carwood Lipton, at that time the company's first sergeant, later put it: "He fell apart."[8] He was relieved during fighting at Foy by First Lieutenant Ronald Speirs under orders from Captain Winters, then moved on to become an aide to General Taylor, 101st Airborne Division.

RE: Re Marsha Steele memorial
Certainly, I used to be related to the Steele's, my mother was married to Ron Steele, do you know him? Marsha and Charley also used to live across the street from us on Charles St. I will transfer her to you. Gravetracker :)

RE: On your Bea Arthur memorial
No apology owed to me. Sometimes it takes work to get things straight. I always honor vets whether the person served a single hitch or whether the military was the whole point of the person's life.

RE: General Sink Memorial
I've passed your message on to Russ and he says that your apology is accepted. As he had promised, he re-posted it on the memorial under his own name.

Thank you.
