    Most of my Father’s memorabilia was lost in a fire. He name is Lucius O. Wells and was a solder in the 87th Infantry Under Patton at the Battle of the Bulge. He is 93 years old and still living. His mind is just as sharp as it was then. I wrote to the Army and had his awards replaced, but I do not have a picture of him in uniform.

    My grandfather was Roy Turner, one of the 24 killed in the explosion on 11th January 1945 while with the 312th combat engineers in Belgium. all of the pictures and information that I have regarding him were destroyed in a fire. If you have any information that you can send me I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for the diligence and research on this tragic event.
