Hello to all! I am in the process of putting together my Grandfathers military record and acquiring replacement medals, as they have been lost to time and space. I thank you all in advance for your diligence in locating lost information! BTW, my Grandfather was/is a USMC Corporal, fought in Tawara and was wounded, flown back to San Francisco, CA and became an MP for a short while!

1. Your Name: Whats your name? What would you like to be called? How did you come up with your member-name? My name is Josh and my member name is from derived from an old employer long ago.

2. Age: How old are you? How long have you been interested in WWII? 34

3. Origins: Where are you from? New Baltimore, MI

4. Specifics: What areas of WWII are you interested in? What would you like to know more about? I would love to learn about the battle of Tarawa and any stories from guys that were there. I am also interested in hearing about the German side of the war.

5. Hobbies: What sort of Hobbies do you have? Are any related to World War II? Wargaming? Video-games? Memorabilia? Visiting historic sites? I love to read, especially about WWII and history in general. I love video games (when I can get the time to play them), and according to my family I am the "Family Historian!" I have a deep interest in genealogical research.

6. Other: What other time periods are you interested in? Specific eras? Why? Just the twentieth century!

7. Miscellaneous: Anything else you'd like to share with us? Not really, I am just an average joe, trying to learn about history and my family's place in it!
