Lest We Forget – Relive The Past

Then & Now: The Battle of the Bulge Video Series

September 25, 2017 joedemadio 2 Comments

Most people love to see pictures of the battlefields of World War 2. That’s why I started my Instagram page on the Battle of the Bulge 1,5 years ago, and so far it’s been a succes. Another thing that I’ve always enjoyed with these war-time photo’s was that in some cases, the orginal location of where the photo was taken was traceable.  This led to a video series that I’m planning to do whenever I get the chance. Last summer I was in Luxembourg for my annual WW2 research trip. After having collected multiple photo’s and their original location, I went back to record a video of how the area looks today.

Much better than Then & Now pictures, these video’s give a better understanding of where the photo was taken 73 years ago. They allow you to ‘Relive’ the past just a little more.

    My Dad fought in The Battle of The Bulge. He was killed on Feb. 1, 1945. He received a Silver Star and Purple Heart. I was 7 months old. I never knew him. I have one picture of him in his uniform with me sitting on his lap. That is the only time he saw me. He had been home on leave. He was in the 346 Infantry Division, 87th Infantry Regiment. I have been reading books of The Battle of The Bulge and just decided to search and see what I would find of The 346, 87Th. One of the books I have is THE Bulge True Stories from the Men and Women Who Survived. There wasn’t much of anything of the 346, 87th in the book. I then decided to search the 346, 87th,

    I forgot to say my Dad’s name. It was Albert Thomas Smith. He had gone to help a fallen soldier. He was given first aid. He was shot in the temple and passed.
