I celebrated this Veterans' Day in hurricane ravaged Long Island by waiting for the power company to send inspectors to all the neighborhood homes to see whether the storm surge damaged home's power systems. They never came. I will "hurry up and wait" again tomorrow for the power to return.

I was thinking of Veteran's Day and wanted to honor my father, Major Arthur Frommer Hoffmann Sr. I posted his picture on Facebook and then discovered this website. In the section of World War II pictures I noticed a picture of Captain Bill Gara. My father served with him and I remember Captain Gara from Christmas cards. All of us kids have been so proud of our father. He had the insignia over our fireplace all of his life. I remember him talking about Charlie Harm, Bill Gara, Bill Barnam, and others. They were all together I think in North Africa, Sicily, and Normandy. My father was wounded crossing the English Channel and never landed on Omaha Beach. He lost an eye. I have some pictures. I will try to figure out how to send them to you. It would be nice to have one along with Captain Gara.

Just found this site and am browsing through it to see who I might find that I was in Nam with. If you were there when I was send me a hello. I would especially like to hear from or find Sydney R Fletcher who was wounded at Quan Loi about June of 1968 and was sent stateside.

I want to thank all my friends from The Veterans of The First Engineer Battalion for their get well cards and prayers for my wife Maggie during her illness. Maggie passed away on 15Sept 2012. She was a proud supporter of The First Engineer Battalion, and greatly enjoyed the reunions and seeing the friends she made there. I once again thank you all for the cards and prayers. God Bless You All.

It was great to look over all of these messages. In response to one message; yes, I remember Reforger 86. It's good to see that today's Engineer Soldiers are still maintaining the Diehard tradition. Always First.
