Hi,
My name is Bryce DeBorde. My dad was SSGT Denzil DeBorde Company A 861st Engineer Aviation Battalion. He passed away in 1978 and talked very little about his unit or his service during WWII. The only story I was told was, was the story of how I got my name.
My dad, Denzil DeBorde and Bryce Dalton were operating a piece of heavy equipment, not sure, but may have been on or near the airfield.The Germans were bombing and Bryce Dalton was killed during the attack. I was named after his fellow soldier and friend Bryce.
My dad would be 98 if he was alive at this time. I doubt if any of his fellow service members are still with us today. I only recently sent away and received his discharge and learned of his unit. After my mom passed away, I also received his flag, dog tags and numerous pictures of his unit. Pictures of his unit in front of The Arc de Triomphe in Paris, pictures at The Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden, I have a picture of the entire Company A 861st Engineer Aviation Battalion. As well as other pictures.
I followed my dads footsteps and enlisted in the United States Army and served my country. I tip my hat to all the men who served in this unit, and to all who have served.
If any of you read this and would like to share any information, pictures with me. I would be glad to do so.
This site is a great source and wealth of information that until now, was unknown to me. Thanks.
Respectfully,
Bryce DeBorde
