As I was reading this, and looking at the list of guys who did great things after Europe, I can't help but think of the thousands that are not listed....they went on to live more humble lives, or they didn't come back.

RIP, Grandpa.

I placed his urn in the ground this spring. He is deeply missed.

Hello, all; My Grandfather was in the 10th Mountain Division, and served with David Brower at Seneca Rocks, and again in Italy. He never talked about the war, but through research I've been able to trace his activities pretty accurately. He was commander of L Company, 86th Regiment until April 29, 1945 when an 88mm round exploded in a tunnel full of troops (and one of them was his Battalion CO). At that point he became commander of 3rd Bn-86th. It was in this capacity that he worked alongside of Dave Brower.

My Grandfather (Everett Bailey) is 95 and still living, though he really doesn't remember anything anymore.
