Hello!
« on: February 12, 2010, 05:34:14 PM »
My name is Bob and I live in Virginia.

My mom's dad, my grandfather, was in WWI and I want to find out more about him and the unit he served with.

I've also been interested in WW2 for some time, my dad was in the 9th USAF and my mom was a Welsh nurse when they met.  My dad's brothers were all in the war and my mom's sister (nurse) and her husband (tank commander) were too.

I'm retired now, used to work for the U.S. Navy in the civil service.

Thanks for having me and you'll be seeing some questions shortly!

Wendi and Tony...THANKS!!!

I'll be checking out the forum the next few days to learn all I can.  Having been a WW2 fan"atic" all my life I've now decided I want to learn something about WWI as well.
