Welcome to The Few Good Men

Thanks for visiting our club and having a look around, there is a lot to see. Why not consider becoming a member?

American Infantry

Probably the Boston Braves before they moved to Milwaukee - Atlanta.
And the Yankees beat Philadelphia Athletics before they moved to Oakland.
And the Cubs lost to the New York Giants before the Giants left for San Francisco.
Brooklyn Dodgers, of course moved to Los Angeles. (Broke my uncles heart)
Interesting fact - The New York Mets colors are Dodger Blue and the Giants Orange.

I’m looking at the picture and the sign on the right has a name of a hotel.
Hotel DU Co…..something, so I did a search for “Hotel du Co Carentan” and found

Hotel Du Commerce Et De La Gare Carentan

The “Et De La G…” is also visible under so I’m thinking that’s got to be it.

I did a search for the hotel and it’s still there.


Next to the hotel you can see a memorial


so I did a search for that and found...

The text on the memorial:

This major town of the Cherbourg peninsula, a key objective of the Normandy invasion, was liberated by the 101st Airborne Division on the 12th of June, 1944.
This memorial plaque is placed here in honor of those “Screaming Eagles” who gave their lives in this campaign and as a token of continuing esteem and friendship for the people of France.
Placed by comrades of the 101st Airborne Division Association.

Thanks again Louis
U.S. Military Police toasting bread over molten lava from Vesuvius volcano, 1944..
Euhm, isn’t it more likely the Etna volcano? Vesuvius has been inactive since Roman times (Pompeii and Herculeum) I think?
