I am a 30 year old Frenchman, historian and photographer. Since 2000, i have been studying the US soldiers during the Second World war and Im planning to come to Bastogne for the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. I hope to meet veterans of the 3rd Armored Division in this place so i would like to know if there is a reception or a ceremony for the association next december. Please let me know. I would be delighted to meet you and to take some pictures (especially portraits). I'm inclosing the address of my portfolio:

Service: Cold War | Years: 1955-1958 | Unit: 33d Tank Bn | Company, Battery or Troop: Baker (Bravo) Company | Other: | Comment: I joined the division as an enlistee when they activated and shipped to Germany in the Gyroscope era. I was the radio repairman for the company and later the Commo Chief. I was there with "Whiskey Joe Langston" as Bn. CO. Cpt. Brad Sweeney was B Co. commander- a fine leader and the best map guy I ever saw. We were CCB back then, commanded by Col. Murdoch. I took a break from the army for some college and reenlisted to stay for a total of 32 years, retiring in 1987 to Georgia. My time as a Spearheader was wonderful and of all the unity in which I served, my cap is adorned with the 3d AD patch!

Service: "Cold War" | Years: 1973-1976 | Unit: 143 Signal Battalion | Company, Battery or Troop: HHC | Other: | Comment: I am an author writing espoinage suspense thrillers, and my third novel, November Spies deals with the 3 and 1/2 days we faced off with the Warsaw Pact forces in 1974. What I need is those three days; they are not listed on the 3rd AD time-line, nor does the Pentagon have any info although my POC at the Pentagon has declasified the event so I can write about it. My web site is www.booksbytspessini.com. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. I was a 31 juliet working in the Commcenter at Drake/Edwards Kasrne when the presidential orders came across our TTYs. I remember a comment made by one of the guys in my unit when they returned, "I knew it wasn't an exercise when the armorer issued out live ammo and hand grenades."
