I keep getting lawyers and businesses wanting me to put links on my website to "HELP Veterans!". I will NEVER do this! This site is not about promoting some business I do not know, or helping a lawyer get richer! Especially seeing I would not want to be the one who sent someone somewhere that they got screwed!! I will not do it for a fee, or commission or anything else. That is not what this site or I am about! I am however going to add in ONE banner and link for Veterans. As it is to HELP out Veterans! It is for free and discounted tickets to events for veterans! I have used them, and have donated to them! If you are a veteran or active duty, please check them out. It costs nothing! I also get nothing but satisfaction for referring you to them!

I have maintained this great site now for over 25 years mostly at my own costs. For the first time ever I am advertising a business which I have used for over 10 years and will get a small commission from if you use them. I rarely will put my reputation at stake for a company. Their backup service is great. If you accidentally delete something, or worse, overwrite it you can retrieve it from their servers. I have used this for large companies and unions to back up their important data and never have had an issue restoring things when an accident happens. If your hard drive crashes, you lose ALL your data. You could spend thousands of dollars trying to get it back. Before retiring a couple years ago I had my IT business for 20 years and saw people and businesses lose everything because they were not prepared.

Due to many people asking me, I will be maintaining this website until either the internet is gone, or I am whichever comes first. I put over 10,000 hours into building this place. I will never just let it go. Plus, my father has this website address on his gravestone. That means I need to keep it up forever!

6/15/2007 It is with great sadness that I report after 61 years, the 150th Combat Engineer Battalion Association has now disbanded. Due to the deaths of many of the prominent members, as well as the health of others, it was decided that a great association disband. Through the years, they have manage to over come anything that was ever given to them as an obstacle, from the day the 150th Combat Engineer Battalion was formed, until now. These men have managed to do something VERY few have ever been able to do. They where able to stay close, all the way from Basic Training in 1943, though one of the worst wars this nation or world has ever seen, until 64 years later, when they have said their last farewell.

On a personal note, I managed to get to know many of these great men, and would do almost anything for them, as I consider them all like family. I wish the surviving members of the outfit the best of health for their remaining years. I hope you all will have fond memories of your times getting together with your buddies. I was not informed, and did not know of the 61st reunion that was held, and it saddened me to hear only 8 members were able to attend. You will always be held close in my heart.

Do you have or remember stories your mom or dad (or grandparents) told you about their time in WWII? Email it to me. I have a section to the website for stories from WWII, from non 150th members.
