    Hi Christy Glad to hear from you. I'm currently adding the info into each mans Bio in the "men of the 2/2" section and am in the "M's" at the moment, if you click on some of the names in the A to L you will see what I'm doing. The info I have is purely 2/2 orientated, so if you or the family wish to add any other info please don't hesitate to let us know. A good example is Alan Luby NX55531, I have his 2/2 info and Ed Willis has added a lot more to his story. We also would like 1 or 2 photos of each soldier for their Bio and the only known one of your dad is this not so good one, so if you can supply any better ones please do. Kind regards Peter Epps
