 It is very exciting to know that there is someone that wants to preserve the history of the 448th and walked the same ground as my father did during the war. His early death in 1969 meant most of his stories were never told to me.Your site helps to fill that void.When looking back in history many years from now,you,my father and the rest of the brave men and women that preserved our liberty will be looked on in reverence and awe. Your Generation made America the greatest nation in history. S.T. White or
