I was just doing some research on my Grandfather's history. I am searching out any info I can. I know my father has lots of his pictures that I could try to get copies of and share. If there is anyone that recognizes the name of my Grandfather please let me know.

I know my granfather attended a few reunions some 20 years ago. He passed away Jan 1998.

My name is Jodi (Koenig) Abbinanti.

So thrilled to find this site. Looking forward to connecting.

Hi Jodi and welcome.

I have added your grandfather to the unit roster ... http://ixengineercommand.com/listmen.php?unit=36#K

I just want to make sure we have him in the right unit though. The correct designator for this unit is the 877th Airborne Engineer Aviation Battalion. I went out to the National World War II Memorial page for your grandfather and based on the insignia in his photo this is the correct unit. That is an excellent photo by the way.

If you would like to create a page for your grandfather, I am more than happy to provide the space. Here are some examples,
