We will treasure the knowledge enclosed and our two sons, Vietnam survivors, will enjoy reading it also. Andy has been enjoying the photos and the memories the book has brought back to him.

    « Mr. De Trez, Have you considered writing about the 507th? I have read the books out there about the 507th and I know you would do a wonderful job. Your style of writing and your photographs are amazing. My uncle, Russell Dillard, was a pathfinder with the 507th in HQ/2nd and arrived in Normandy on Plane 14. He lost his life on June 23, 1944 near Amfreville. I look forward to reading your upcoming books. »
