As a proud Veteran of my US Army service in World War II and at 94 years of age, I have gathered and scanned my personal wartime photos to share them with those who might be interested around the world. This site will depict the US Army 56th Signal Battalion's combat and training participation in WWII in Europe as part of the First US Army and the Fifth Corps. Photos captions to the best of my memories of those days are shown.
This site is currently a work in progress, as I migrate from my previous online gallery. Over time, more photos will be included and rescanned as necessary.
In the meantime, you can also find me on Twitter: (How's that for a 94 year old!)Follow @BobSearlSr
