Hello Sir, I am sorry it has been so long since I was in contact with you.
I am Raymond Millers grandaughter and currently stationed in Germany.
My mother (his daughter) is coming to visit in December and we would like to visit the crash site and the Margraten Cemetery.
If possible, It would be wonderful to meet Mr. Redder and yourself as well.
Please let me know if this is possible.
Thank you again for all you have done to honor these men.
Yesterday I visited Luxembourg Cemetery with my family and was so moved by the rows of crosses.
I look forward to seeing this part of my families history.

Take care, thank you again. Jessica Bond

Diane Breininger

I just happened to GOOGLE my uncle's name and your note popped up.
I am Marshall Breininger's neice. His younger brother Carl was my father.
Both brothers served in WWII.
I never met my uncle Marshall because I was not yet born when he died.
When he died, he was survived by his mother (Annie), sister (Mabel), brother (Carl), and youngest sister (Anna).
My father passed away in 2004; however, Anna Breininger Kutz is still living.
She lives in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.
I want to thank you very much for taking care of his grave.
You have no idea how much that means to me and his family.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me.

Again, thank you. Diane Breininger

Sac hound 42-31467 crashed in my garden (not really but 200 meters) on march 02 1944.
I met the pilot 3 times, the bomber 2 times and children of Falk and Conway a few times.
I have pictures of memorial ceremony, reports of the crash by germans,pictures of german pilot,but no picture of the complet crew or of the plane.
I'm ok to talk about Sac hound with everybody who is interested.
Before flying Sac Hound they crashed Nasty Habit 42- 31090 (sorry for my English, As belgium people I'm suppose to practice fluent dutch but....)
