Hello. My name is Dan Finnefrock. I live in Tulsa, Ok. My father Lloyd of Ephrata, PA was in and around several campaigns in WWII. I have another dear friend from Ephrata that was in the 504 Airborn. His name is Henry S. Furst. In fact Henry popped up in an article from the Galveston News from Nov 26th 1943 that was reposted by macfrank. The article was about the Battle of the House.
Henry was like a second father to me in Ephrata where I grew up. He was very much a mentor in certain areas. Henry always told the story of when his unit overtook a german hunting camp where Henry relieved them of a mauser manlicher 9mm hunting rifle. I am trying to authenticate it. He had said it was Hermann Goering's rifle. Last month in the American Rifleman magazine there was a small article on a shotgun recovered that was Goering's. It was taken from the Carinhall hunting lodge.

Was the 504th at this camp or any other camp? Thanks.

Dan

Hey there,

Just stopping in to say hello. I'm a college student currently in Virginia, and needless to say, I am a fan of military history.

Hi all,

Well, Dutch... interessted in the operational art of war since outgrowing the 'picture-watching'.

Hope for some more information to be sucked-up and some brilliant discussions...

regards, Len

In case you've been wondering where I've been...

hi!

I've been away from these (and other) forums for a while as I made a dramatic change in my life!

- got married, with now 4 kids (2 boys and 2 girls)
- changed careers.. to a less lucrative but much more healthy one...
- became a writer under pen name "Piero San Giorgio"... my first book got big success in French speaking countries (top 26 on Amazon in 2012), ma second book had lots of similar success, third book comes out in march 2014....
- first book is just now out in the USA - check i out, if you like...http://www.amazon.com/Survive--The-E...ro+san+giorgio (i think the topic would appeal to most people here...

anyways, I wanted to first thank you all who in many ways contributed with your discussions, advice, controversial thoughts over the years, (and also use of smileys ) and I wanted to wish you all a great 2014, despite all the crisis and crap going on around the world.

I'll be on these forums more often now!

ciao!
piero
