A Relic of WWII is Returned


(See my other WWII related posts) – My cousin sent me the link to the Chicago Tribune article “The Canteen” this morning. The photo above is from that article.

The article tells of an American Officer who was severely injured in June of 1944 near Mortain, France. Now 75 years later his children have been contacted by a resident of Mortain with the news that he had found their father’s canteen. If this interests you, go read the full story.

If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest. 

The  World War II Sources” page is a collection of more than 310 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.

The “World War II Timeline” page shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
