Good morning to all!
I’m a member of Flowers of Memory for two years and me and my girlfriend Deborah, we have adopted, among others, two soldiers who were on board of the Leopoldville.
James L Falci
STATE: New York
UNIT: 66th Infantry Division, 262nd Infantry Regiment
Chester B Simmons Jr
UNIT: 66th Infantry Division, 264th Infantry Regiment
First of all I want to tell you that for us it’s an honor to remember and honor them.
As soon as we can, we go to Normandy American Cemetery of Colleville sur Mer to put flowers and honor their sacrifice.
We live in the north west of Italy and Colleville it’s about 1.300km from us…
I just joined this site and I hope, through you, to learn more about the Leopoldville disaster and maybe have some more information on “my” two soldiers.
