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.

What a great thread, thanks for posting up everyone.

Several years ago I was a winter guest at a cabin between Lower and Upper Echo Lakes off of Echo Summit here in the Tahoe Sierra. The owners have a wonderful photo album there since the cabin has been in the family for a very long time. Anyway thumbing through it I found photos of a ski tour lead by David Brower with friends from Echo Summit to Donner Summit, it must have been in the late 30's right before the war. Talk about hard core, just imagine how wild the Tahoe backcountry must have been back then. Highway 50 was a dirt road!!!
