My introduction

Bericht door UsGal65 » zo 09 sep 2007, 17:37

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here, living in Belgium. I'm a Godmother at HC (one Godson there) and mainly at Ardennes, also an AWON representative for MD. I know some dutch but I'm better at English, that's why I posted here. I'm glad I found a forum for grave adoptions :)

Greetings from Belgium,

Thanks to all for the great welcome! Michiel, my nickname refers to my love for the USA... Us (United states) Gal (familiar word for girl). I was raised that way by my parents who saw the Allies come and free their village, especially my father who was ten at that time... :) I have extreme RESPECT for all Veterans, and never refuse to help in searching for a MIA/KIA, or to look for possible godparents i.e. at Ardennes Cemetery. My daughter is one of the youngest Godmothers there (I waited until she was old enough to ask to become one and understand what it meant of course), she'll be 9 in november. It's the only way I found to thank them and their next of kins for the sacrifices they made and I still wish we could do more than that !

Talk to you again soon,

UsGal

Hi UsGal,

I adopted a grave on the war cemetery ardennes also...its a beautiful peaceful place there.

I adopted:

Name: Warren H Garrett
Born: 12 Januari 1921
Serial number: 36622329
Inducted From: White Country, Illinois
Rank: Private First Class
Combat Organization: 327th Glider Infantry 101st Airborne
Death Date: 19 Sep 1944
Monument: Ardennes, France
Last Known Status: Buried
U.S. Awards: Purple Heart Medal

Its verry hard to find information about him...i found his former caretaker were i am trying to get in contact with...and i recieved his IDPF with 2 adresses were i will send letters to....hope to get in tough with some relatives like i have with my other adopted graves at magraten.

Anyway, its nice to meet you and good to have someone who is a godmother at the ardenne cemetery on this forum

Kind regards,

Jasper

This is confusing. I can find 4 men named Warren H Garrett but none of them were from Illinois.

I will continue to look.
