David ~
Thank you so much for adding my Dad's name to the members of the 840. The tribute to your grandfather is wonderful. I feel like I have met him. Pleas add these men to the list of members of the 840. I have taken the names from Tom Hines' writing about his unit and some of his letters while working on 840 reunions.
Ed Champney, C.C. (Charles C.) Davis, Al Keeney, Earl Land, graduated from the Colorado School of Mines, Dr. Jack Moehn, Tony Montesanti, Joe Shaw, Floyd Wells, Floyd's wife Robbie is an honorary member of the 840. She spent her retirement organizing 840 reunions, Carl Warfield was awarded the Coir de Guere avec Etoile for being 63 mile behind enemy lines and getting eight men. a command car and a half truck back. Carl was an architect. Angelo Bonaiuto, Joe Haessler, Dominic DiBiase, Fearless Fred H. Smith, Garrett Muelman, William Harrison, master mechanic. James C. "Porkey" Smith received the Croix de Guerre from Charles De Gaulle in Paris.
Mannin Purvis, Blackjack Edward Przepasniak POW, Sargent Murray killed, Capt. Osborn POW, T/ Sgt. Paddock POW, Val Valentino Giorgianni, Tom Sadick. I am working on sending you tributes to many of these men written by Tom Hines. My hope is there familes will find them.
David thank you so much for creating this site.
