Hello everyone, I've been a member here for some time but never created a thread or posted anything. I've just enjoyed reading all the threads, there are some really smart folks here. I'm posting to see if anyone knows where I could find some information about my grandfather, my brother and I are trying to put a family tree together. We knew him well as youngsters but he never really talked about the war until the end of his life (7/07). He was a Seabee in the south Pacific and we are told was on my of the famous islands making landing strips. And resources would be greatly appreciated.
