My wires dad, Pfc. Harry Heiberger, is buried at Margraten and we have visited there. I offer the following for the families or friends who might be interested in the story behind his death and the death of three other medics of the 319th regiment medical detachment, 80th division. They were Carmine Liotti of New York, John Corbin of New Jersey and John Boire of Oregon. Together, they were assisting a german nurse and at least one wounded soldier on April 15th, 1945 in an area of Glauchau, Germany still contested by the german army and several fanatical civilians. While evacuating these people and relying on their red cross designation for protection, they braved heavy enemy fire and were killed by a rocket propelled grenade that exploded near their jeep. All were posthumously awarded the PH. My wife's dad and John Boire were also awarded the silver star for their actions that day. Liotti, Corbin and Heiberger are all buried at Margraten. Boire's family brought his body back to Oregon. Liotti is honored on Staten Island, New York as a call park is named after him.

I want to personally thank Michel Beckers who has worked diligently to add personal information to my father's memorial page. My father, 1st Lt. David Franklin Albrecht, was KIA just over two months before my birth returning from his 21st bomb run. I have not been able to visit his grave, and am doing what I can to expand his page so that he becomes a real person with a face for others to see and for his relatives who dearly miss him. War is such a waste of wonderful lives cut short. Who knows what might have been. All of these men and women who gave everything to ensure freedom for many future generations cannot be forgotten! There are no people kinder or more appreciative of their sacrifices than the Dutch. Bless them all.

I admire the persons who created this website, and all who did all research to complete it. I wrote the book Raalte during wartime 40-45, published in 1986 with a second print in 2003. In Raalte (Nieuw Heeten) two B17's crashed 11-1-1944 at the land of Bessembinder and Kremer. Recently I've visited the locations with an eye-witness. I would be happy to share my dokumentation, and collect new information. Please contact me over my e-mail in order to be in contact to complete more dokumentation.
with warm greetings to all,

This is a fantastic labor of love, I only wish my cousins mother was still alive to see this site. She never believed until the day she died that her son wasn't coming home someday. Thank you Eric Richard Gaillet for keeping the memory of Charles Augustus Ollman alive.

Frederick Barrett Holmes KIA Oct 3, 1944. Resting at Henri-Chapelle American Cemetary. He is my dad's older brother. My grandmother was active in Gold Star Mother in Bergen County, NJ (Park Ridge). My brother was named Frederick when he was born in 1953 and when I had a son in 1963 I named his middle name for my Uncle. Barrett. We needed to do this as uncle Barrett never had a chance to have a family and my grandmother was in grief the rest of her life over the loss od her son, passing in 1970.
