Hi Jessica, welcome and thank you for joining us.

I will be adding your grandfather to our 'Hall of Heroes Registry' this weekend. We also have a corresponding photo album, of which, I can add any WWII-era photos of your father. In order to do this, upload those photos to your 'My Photos' app. on your profile. I can then aggregate those to our "Family Members" photo albums.

Just something that we offer if you are interested. Let me know if you have any questions!  Scott Lyons

Stories from the World War II Battlefield

By JENNIFER HOLIK

Please join us Tuesday evening, 3 March 2015, at 7pm CST/8pm EST for this exciting giveaway. Jennifer is offering five (5) free copies in the 'Genealogical & Historical Research' group.

From Jennifer Holik: "Have you heard that phrase regarding the status of Army, Air Corps, and National Guard records from World War II? Roughly 80% of these records did burn in a fire in 1973. This is not however, the end of the road for researchers. Many other record sources exist to reconstruct the service history of a World War II soldier.

All the tools researchers need to start exploring their World War II soldier’s service are included in this volume."

World War II in Secret

By GAVIN MORTIMER

Published 2 April 2015 »

Please join us Thursday evening, March 5th 2015 in the 'British Forces & The Battle of Britain' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: World War II in Secret profiles the many undisclosed and secretive stories of World War II, complete with copious illustrations and photographs drawn from the archives of all the major Allied and Axis powers. Espionage, radio, radar, and codes technology, resistance movements and saboteurs, weapons programs, camouflage and suberterfuge, and covert operations are all explored and uncovered to their smallest detail.

Stay the Rising Sun

By PHIL KEITH

Published 1 May 2015 »

Please join us Thursday evening, April 9th 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "In May 1942, the United States' first first naval victory against the Japanese in the Coral Sea was marred by the loss of the aircraft carrier USS Lexington. Another carrier was nearly ready for launch when the news arrived, so the navy changed her name to Lexington, confusing the Japanese."

Hidden Warships

By NICHOLAS A. VERONICO

Published 5 June 2015 »

Please join us Thursday evening, May 7th 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "World War II produced many epic naval battles and technologies. The many resulting shipwrecks from this immense war unintentionally created a record of new warfighting technologies that today's armchair explorers and shipwreck hunters can participate in. In an accessible format with over 200 illustrations, Hidden Warships details the combat, recovery, and preservation of combat ships from World War II--beginning with the Japanese midget submarine attacks on Pearl Harbor--to the sinking of the postwar aircraft carrier USS Oriskany."
