Honor WW2 Veterans
70th Infantry Division Veterans need your help.
On October 6, 1997, the once very active men of the 70th Infantry Division who fought in WWII during the Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace and Central Europe campaigns, dedicated a memorial to the nearly 900 men who were killed fifty years earlier.
This memorial proudly sits beside Sacrifice Field, deep inside Ft. Benning, Georgia.
Due to current security policy at Fort Benning, it’s no longer available to the public.
As one can imagine, the ranks of the 70th Division are much smaller today than they were in 1997. My father (tan coat in photo) passed away in 2007.
The 70th Infantry Division Association is asking for your help to raise an additional $7,500.
A new monument including the names of the Division's KIA/MIA will be placed at the National Infantry Museum's memorial walk outside Fort Benning’s main gate where the public can continue to honor the fallen heroes of this sacred Division.
The Association is honored at this time to add the names of seven more brave 'Trailblazer' soldiers who were killed in Iraq.
With your help we can complete this project and dedicate the new monument 20 years later on October 7, 2017.

While my father will not be there with us to shed tears for his comrades, there are still a number of the youngest Trailblazers left from WW2 looking forward to seeing the monument complete.

Thank you for your time and consideration, will you help?

In Memory of PFC Frank A. Morabito, HQ/3 Bn/274
post a couple of pictures of Wingen and the snow and General Herrens pic.
Put Snow Ridges and Pillboxes on the email site doubling the cost of the book and I bet you will get enough money to do the entire thing. Surely with all the hits and a little side advertisment giving anyone a real treat as to life in a firefight, they will go for it. Books are moving now and many want to know what it was like Christmas and new year 1944-45
In honor of all the Veterans of the 70th Division and their spouses - truly the greatest generation.
In memory of my uncle, Elbert Taylor Kia
