My uncle 1LT Lyman Plyer is buried in Ardennes. The inital "L" (my middle name) is for Lyman. My mother Elizabeth Plyer Mack named me after her brother when I was born in 1947. I had the great pleasure and honor of taking my mother to see her brothers grave in 1975 while she was visiting me in Germany. I was a very emotional and rewarding experience for her, she finaly had some closure. The caretaker gave her his wallet as ID tag when she visited. I had the good fortune to take a ride in a B-17G in 2003 - what a joy for me. His grave site was very impressive. God Speed uncle Lyman - your loving nephew, Tom.

During WWII on a cold Christmas Day, my grandfather picked up a couple of soldiers who were waiting at the bus depot; he brought them home for our big family dinner. The guys were a lot of fun, really nice. How sad we all were to see them leave when it was time to catch their bus. During the months that followed, my sister and I wrote to them as "penpals". I was 7 and she was 11, and it was such a thrill whenever we received one of their letters. Then we stopped hearing from them. Sadly, records indicate that a George Steffy was killed in a *** prison camp. I have no way of knowing if he is the George we knew. I’m still curious to know if they both may have survived that war.
George Steffy and Joseph Moloski will always be fondly remembered.

My sister and I have visited the American Cemetery at Margraten. Our uncle, John S. Channell, MIA 1 Dec. 1943, is listed on the Wall of the Missing and we came to honor him. The cemetery is beautiful. Thank you to the Dutch people for making sure the ultimate sacrifice of these American soldiers is remembered. Our uncle is not forgotten in our family and we are very appreciative that he and the others are not forgotten in Holland. Your grave adoption program, your website and the database are just wonderful. Thank you for all of your work.

To my Dutch friends:
If any of you, or if any of your friends, wishes to adopt a name on the MIA wall, I have one.
Pfc. William (Sonny) Simon was killed on Nov. 5, 1944, while serving with the 109th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division. I assume he was in the Hurtgen Forest attack, because the 28th was mauled in that attack, and books have been written about how the battle never should have happened.
Simon has a VFW post named after him in Middleton, Wis., a few miles from where I grew up. His photo certainly is there and I would think the post probably knows where surviving family is.
I will pursue this once I know he has been adopted.
