We're not lost, Sergeant, We're in … France


Research Days

I’m so excited! Today and tomorrow, I’ll be up in Carlisle to see Dr Geoffrey Megargee give a talk on the German High Command in World War II and conduct some of my own research. The Army Heritage and Education Center is located in Carlisle, so there are loads of records stored there. I’m going to start by looking at records from Fort Bragg in regards to his time in the Special Forces. I’ll also be doing some research on LTG William Pelham Yarborough, who commanded the 509th later in the war and, like so many airborne officers, had his future in the Special Forces.

Geoff, it was a fantastic presentation. I even had you autograph my copy of your book (I asked about your German langauge skills when we chatted.) Hope we can interest you in our Operation Dragoon (July) or Colmar Pocket (December) seminars this year.
