Surnames: Too Many ~ See Body of Post
This post is information from the tenth magazine in the group, the Sept 1944 issue. There is no Aug 1944 magazine in this group.

In this issue, in addition to listing the award, name & rank; some entries list the serviceman's home address. But none of the entries give the men's serial numbers.

Each entry also has a bio describing the person's actions that lead to the award but in order to get as many of these entries on line as possible, I won't transcribe them here. If the serviceman is one of your family, please contact me for a copy of the entry in full. I won't be keeping the magazines since I will be donating them to a museum. I will be making a copy of the cover, title page and the "For Heroism and Service" pages so you will be able to obtain a copy of the pages if wish to have them for your files. I also hope to be able to find the time to post a reference to this post on the various surname pages, when they exist, and state pages, when the home state is given, if time and energy permit.

I would very much like to get a digitized (scanned) set of images with respect to the Sheppard entry e.g., cover, title page and the story line. Please let me know what I would need to do to obtain this information.

Thanks,
Johanna

I'd be happy to send you photocopies. My scanner is dead and with one in college and another looking to start next fall, replacing it is at the bottom of my list. I should have been more specific when I said "copy"; guess living in an old house has made me think in old fashioned terms.

Email me your snail mail. I'm making copies this week for other researchers and I'll do yours at the same time.
