Battle of the Bulge 70th Anniversary

Pvt. FC Russel E. Albrecht was in a foxhole near Malmedy those six days, Dec. 19-24, 1944.  He tells his story about that Christmas in Finding Foxholes. #battleofthebulge #Malmedy #FindingFoxholes

thank a vet

With Veterans’ Day coming up soon, let’s remember and thank our military heroes.  For me, foremost is my dad, Private First Class Russel E. Albrecht, a rifleman in Europe 1944-45.  And now I have a pen-pal from Tracy, MN – Harold Cooper, age 90.  Harold was a replacement in the Ardennes with a machine gun unit.  Do you have a veteran in mind?
