  1. Good morning Sir;

    I was directed your way by Pacific Paratrooper this morning!

    The last 3 years, we have coordinated a ruck/run/walk here in our town for the Carry The Load organization out of Dallas. This year, one of the names we had on our list was my wife’s great uncle (Leonard Rock), who was killed in the Battle of the Bulge. The other man is my own grandfather (Harold Miller), who didn’t actually die IN COMBAT but suffered injuries bad enough to affect the rest of his life upon return and resulted in a brutal suicide in which my father found him the next morning.

    To make a long story short, I guess I’m curious if you have access to a repository of data regarding military units and individuals in World War II or if you may have your own collection to cull information from. I am completely fine doing the “legwork” myself, but would love to know if you have any further information about either of these men. My information is still pretty scarce, although I found a gentleman who has some after action reports and maps of Leonard’s troop movements in the Battle of the Bulge. Leonard was supposedly shot on the 17th of December, but didn’t pass away until the 20th.

    I have attached all the information I have for both gentlemen. I sent on a request for military and medical records to the NRC as well, but would love any type of anecdotal information to further personalize these two men.

      I know about the Battle of the Bulge but enough to guide you.
      Sorry.
